The atmosphere was great and the people working along side me were wonderful.
The culture of working at the railway is similar to the native Canadian experience. There used to be an internal respect for fellow workers, management and the company but that has all been eroded for corporate gains for stockholders and by Orwellian thumbs down controls.
Very volatile work environment. Lots of layoffs and constant concern about who is next. Plenty of resentment towards the management conductor program, which sends employees away for weeks at a time.
