Just wait to thank me when that song is rolling around your head for hours while you're running down the tracks.

Excellent pay, benifits, and retirement. I hear a good union too but I've never work in any unions so I wouldn't know.
PWI as usual...

My father works for union pacific as a conductor/switchmen. He will have been there a year in January, he likes it and the pay is good. He is trained to be a conductor and did it for some time in his training but now works in one of the yards remotely controlling locomotives and putting trains together. He went this route because it enables him to be home everyday instead of pulling a load somewhere staying in a hotel and coming back the next day or sometimes getting stock somewhere for a day or two. When he first started a yard job he was on call all the time and it got to the point where he hated anytime the phone rang because you could work 1st shift one day and 3rd shift the next. He has a regular job now working 2nd shift wed-sun. At union pacific you can pick your job/assignment based on seniority so if somebody senior to you likes your job he can bump you off your job and you have to find an open job or bump someone below you, in the first few month he was getting bumped quite a bit. Safety is a huge deal from what he tells me and is the easiest way to get fired.-2012 Supra Launch 21V
