"Awful company. Local management is terrible. Zero knowledge."
"Its been a long 12 years here. Started off great despite the company never really caring for the employees. Work non stop and struggle to get vacation days approved most of the time. Then when business slows they start cutting...and cutting... The last 3 years have been horrible the company cuts jobs adds work to existing jobs changes schedules almost as if to just make them less appealing. Weird right? The people running this place care about stock prices thats it. Not the employees the customers or the public. Trains have doubled in size(to cut crews) the block public crossings much longer now. I like what I do but anything above middle management and even some of them could care less about employees. Now they want to pass covid mandates. In hopes they will lose people so they can push for 1 man crews. Which is not safe for the crew member or the public. They have "programs" running trains until it messes up or gets scared then it dumps it on to the actual engineer. You then have to fix the mistake in a time frame the computer decides its taking all the skill our men have away. You get fired for doing something you havent done because this system thinks you will. Even when you prove it wrong. Horrible place. Stay away"
"Great company to work for that provided great experiences along the way. Would recommend to anyone interested in operations management, the railroad industry, and managing people. Lots of room to grow and be what ever you set out to be. Management supports and encourages you to do well and help provide the best service to the customers. Good company to be apart of."
"And great job with good pay and retirement, however it’s poorly ran by upper management."
"If you’re not a stock holder they do not care about you at all. The customer and the employees to them are a necessary evil. They want you available 24/7 for repairs but they do not want to buy material to keep things running, then they act like they’re doing you a favor when they do buy parts and materials to maintain their equipment."
"It was a great job when I started and stayed that way till about 5 yrs ago. The company management went from taking care of customers to only caring about the bottom line and stockholders. It is a very hostile environment now."
"the company was misleading on job security adjusted to dangerous environmental work issues"
"It's a job, time for a change."
"It is a great experience."
"I've worked for the rail road on an off sence I was 18 years of age. Its come a time an age where computers are taking some of the jobs there for leaving some of us without a job or short hours. I've also had a few other jobs in my career search that have taught me alot an I have experienced numerous talents an opportunity of experience. Jobs such as production, transportation, technical, a few others characteristics I'm sure I'm leaving out. I will strive to find the best career for my needs an appilitys that is my goal an review."
"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 am currently employed at norfolk southern railroad i am a conductor an also remote control operator i hav worked there for 9 years i have worked on the extra board an been on call for many of my years here i have worked many nites weekends an think i have been a very dependable asset to the company"
"Fast pass work environment"
"Great colleagues. Inconsistent management. Great pension plan."
"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."
