CSXT honest employment review
What I like
I like the co-workers and the job itself but management makes it not worth it.
What I dislike
Management is necessary but it needs to go back to letting people do their job without second guessing their every move.
Suggestions for improvement
Stop having local management literally hid in the weeds to watch employees work, or using drones or inward facing cameras that can be live streamed. The amount of micro management is unbearable and completely over the top.
From day one it was obvious it was management against the employees
No communication between the craft employees and management.
The only teamwork is between the employees and other crafts.
Constantly on call with a 2 hour notice to to report for duty. If you need to go to an appointment you’d better hope you don’t get called otherwise you get penalized by receiving attendance points(minimum of 4 and up to 10) and after 20 you get a suspension.
Support from management
If I could give this zero or even negative stars I would. Management is constantly trying to fire people for a multitude of reasons.
Freedom to work independently
Do what you’re told, when you’re told or be suspended.
Male or female, if you’re in the craft you’re hated by management.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Seems the more seniority the better right? Wrong. That just means you’re at the top of the pay scale, able to work the best jobs and have the most vacation/personal days so management thinks why pay someone the most agreed upon wage and vacation when a younger, easier to intimidate with less available time off can do the same job.
There’s no place for safety when profits are at risk
Been furloughed 3x in a 5 year span.
