Support from management

Caf was the 3rd rail car company that I have worked for and by far the worst, least experienced, and non helpfull managers I have come across.

Teamwork

Zero teamwork at caf do to everybody trying to be the star student to keep the managers happy rather than completing jobs on time. Note: the company has been super late delivering products to their customers.

Challenging Work

Only challenging because had to re do things multiple times due to poor planning and blueprints and doing things like using caulk to fix everything rather than proper seals and gaskets.

What I like about the company

Was close to home but that's it.
