Maybe I should have been more specific smart ass, obviously I read that which is why I was asking because you never get the whole truth about a job until you start it and I don’t want to move my family accross the country without feed back. So someone with real feedback please fill me in on the position and the company not just copy and pasting the job ad because any first grader could have done that.
Any info besides what’s on their website helps, am I going to spend more time on furlough than working bankrupting my self because I want the only decent retirement left out there, how they treat their employees, things that are important to know that I wouldn’t know without being a current employee.
I am asking because I worked with CSX from 2005-2008 as a conductor and spent more time on furlough in 3 years than working. I lost my credit and house trying to chase that retirement.
