"I interned at Norfolk southern during the summer. Overall, it was a good experience. My supervisor and coworkers were very nice and really made an effort to involve me in their work and give me meaningful tasks. The salary was also great for an internship position. The only downside I can think of was the gap between projects. While they were challenging, they were few and far between."

"I'm not sure where this article got its information, but I have been a heavy equipment operator with NS for over 35 years and we do not get even close to $100,000 a year. Base pay is 28.25 per hour, or a little over $58,000 a year. I have averaged about $85,000 the last two years, by working every stick of overtime available to me. 16 hr days, 24 hr shifts, 2-3 weeks straight through without days off. Then, you can expect to be treated like dirt if you make any kind of mistake. You can make a decent living with NS, but don't expect to have a home life or a nurturing work environment because it just isn't there."
