As a rail traffic controller, not a day was the same, great pay and advantage and retire plan, really stressful job, but a great company to work for. Loved the challenges of getting everyone home safe.

You need to be flexible for work hours at all times for the first few years at least. The work schedule can change up to 24hrs before shift. working day/evening/nights with short changes (8hrs between shifts) or long changes. Entitled to 48hrs off per two weeks which is not always at same time. They preach safety but encourage speed so as to make timings/profit. need to be at your 110% at all times since it is a safety critical position but barely give you adequate rest. can tell you you are staying for overtime at end of shift a few times a week with you not able to say no. trouble/responsibility always rolls down to the RTC from above and from crews in the field.
Points positifs
good salary
Points négatifs
no work/life balance. extreme stress. No support.

The title says it all, these guys (to be fair, ALL railways) have NO work/life balance. If you take this job you will make a whole butt-load of cash and will get a great pension, but it comes at a HUGE sacrifice if you value any sort of social life. You live and breath this work, the company is your new family, and you WILL NOT HAVE ANY BREAKS, WEEKENDS, OR HOLIDAYS (Save for 2 weeks AV) for AT LEAST 10-15 years as you build up your seniority. Seniority is the king at these unionized position.
All this coupled with the inherent stress of being the middleman between field crews and operation center management, the position’s incredibly steep learning curve, and the utter disregard for employee workloads and sleep deprivation makes this a job that only a few people can pull off for more than a few months to a year.

Prefer not to comment to much because it is a cut throat culture. The managers have quotas to fill each month where they catch people failing. They do not promote success. There is a group of spys that linger around and try to turn people in for trouble.

The company is currently going through a down sizing and timing all excess employees. This is increasing workload on the existing employees in the company.

It was an extremely busy work environment (24-7)365 days/yr. and there was not much time for leisurely socializing at work. We were expected to work 8 hr. shifts without a meal break and could be asked to extend to 12 hr. shift on short notice.
The hardest part of the job was when things got very busy because the incoming workpace was random and uncontrollable.

The best part of the job was getting through a very busy period having done a good job with good results.

It is hard to comment on mgmt. because it changed often.

What I learned on this job was time management and prioritization skills and how to effectively communicate succinctly with a variety of people throughout the day.

I also learned to adapt quickly to fluid unpredictable situations.
Points positifs
good pay and benefits
Points négatifs
erratic hours and forced overtime

The company atmosphere has become oppressive as the company strives for a 55% operating ratio. During the day I controlled the rail traffic between Vancouver and Kamloops, BC. I managed rail maintenance workers and train traffic, with an eye to expedite both. I loved the job, the people I worked with were excellent, all committed to their jobs.
Points positifs
Variable shifts

A typical day as a Rail Traffic Controller begins with transferring from the employee before me, and then hitting the ground running. Trains have to keep moving and foremen need to get on the track at almost all times of the day. Each day comes with it new scenarios and a list of complex problems that need to be solved as safely and quickly as possible.

What I learned most about the job is being able to really focus at a task at hand. It could cost someone their life if I'm not 100 percent focused on what I am doing.


Management has been great at times, and an adversary at others. They keep looking for ways to streamline efficiency and have implemented some good programs. And at other times, putting too much work on the shoulders of the employee.


My coworkers are great. They come to the job everyday knowing they might get their butt kicked but at the same time making a difference in the lives of the public by transporting their goods across the country.


The hardest part of the job is definitely the schedule. Work/sleep/work is a big part of the lifestyle and managing personal stress and exercise is key to being successful at the job.


The most enjoyable part of the job is getting the railway running smoothly. It is extremely difficult to get trains going smoothly, and when it happens it's an incredible feeling.
Points positifs
pension, coworker adhesion
Points négatifs
shift work, high stress.
