Don't expect to have a work/life balance with this company. CP functions as they call you jump as far as they tell you. How it works is they call, you have two hours to get to the station to print your paperwork and be on the engine. They barely pay you anything while training (2000/Month) and your often out of town for a couple days at a time. Don't be shocked if you're also working 16 hours in a day. If you survive the grueling training you can make around 60-70K a year once you're qualified.
It was actually really fun and the people there were friendly and the drivers were hilarious and understanding. Actually miss a few companys.

I think workjng there was the best job ecer paid every Friday. And the company was nice and fun to work with time flew by and hey great work out. I met alot of different people from all over the world. And I learned how to be safe unlocking and locking containers on a train. Also learnt alot about safety as well as others safety. I took temperatures on containers. And tagged containers for damage.
Work/Life balance and corporate climate is lacking in my 37 years experience

If you can get past the negative work/life balance climate and the company politics it can be a rewarding lifetime career and the fellow workmates you encounter can be lifelong friends if you engage in a positive manner.
