BNSF, UP, or?What position?

BN, machinist. Pretty much any coal train going east or south out of wyoming comes through here. Im actually on a job where an electrician and I are on call to fix trains and locomotives that break down.

BNSF is huge in my area as well and always hiring, the thing that kept me from trying for a job with them over the years was the odd hours of work and always on call for many of the positions plus I am not for union jobs either, I don't like living life on the road 8 hours at a time. I like my head on my own pillow at night.

Thats why i work in a "craft". Im actually holding a day job for the last year and i work 730-330 with tue/wed off. Have 88 people below me in my town alone and another 20 or so in my district. Im pro union but i wish the unions could get back to the way/reason they were started. We get ran over by the company and the union cant do much. Oh well. Its good pay, great insurance, and i will have an amazing retirement. My dad retired as a machinist after 31 years and he makes more money sitting at home than i do showing up to work. And he never invested in a 401k.
