Topics regarding layoffs at Norfolk Southern Corp.
One PoSR to buy another.
When it comes to hiring people, I wonder how selective is NS nowadays? It seems to me that the company doesn’t care much about the people it employs at all, I was recently surprised when a friend’s son didn’t get a job here even though he deserves... — read more
Why would a company so concerned about their operating ratio have a operating officers "inspection train" party train with a sleep over during a virus pandemic ?
One word- Lack of Personnel. I have seen entire pools needing vacancies filled with no one to do it. Literally down to 2 crews available out of 30 at any one time with an extraboard at half strength. 10 conductors on Y on the pool from going out... — read more
Locomotive Fleet Services at former RLS just now . Big ol'e $15 hr .... I just laughed and hung up
Got conductors spots up for everywhere on the jobs page. Big changes? Waiting on them to bring all these furloughs back first!
Now that I have your attention, does anybody know if 35’s will fit on a 4th gen 2500 with a leveling kit?
It's both funny and somewhat annoying when I hear employees discussing with each other which of them is lazy and which isn’t. My opinion is that everyone works even more than what they are paid for. It's a whole different matter that most of us are... — read more
If I was looking to leave NS, what would be my best alternative?
These jokers don’t hardly want to come out of the office to walk a train or blue flag a track to hang an EOT. Cut these jokers off!!!! You ask them to check a track or hang an EOT and it’s the ol’, “I guess I could”. These jokers don’t want to do... — read more
So, found out today that these new conductor trainees that have came over from the signal dept. we’re guaranteed an income of $6,200/ month for life. Been told this now from several people. How about that?!? There’s what your company thinks of you... — read more
Got called back to work can't wait to work with Mr. Ed
That stain the rest of us by their stupid behavior and then get caught and blame everything on the Company. The Company is a bunch of toolbags but they get help from the people who would be lucky to be a Walmart greeter if they didn’t have a railroad... — read more
So are we getting anything soon?
Receive disrespect, teach respect. Receive lies, teach truth. Receive harshness, teach kindness. Receive bullying, teach compassion. Receive confusion, teach instruction. Receive criticism, teach understanding. Receive a follower, teach leadership.
I can’t even imagine it here anymore, that they decide to give on greed and do something good for this company. Well, these people don’t seem to care about the railroad at all, it seems to me. I wonder how this company works anyway, considering how... — read more
I have heard from many people that they feel pressure more than ever to leave this company voluntarily. I have had this feeling for more than 10 years, as long as I have been here. I don’t remember this ever being a company that particularly... — read more
What are some of the dumbest reasons you were put in the START program? I’ve had anything from not getting a engine download and clearing up a trouble to p–ping in the lady’s bathroom.
Anybody ever get paid?
Looks like we've now been upgraded to constant small layoffs instead of occasional big ones.
Must be monitored and censored by the company because any real truthful news gets taken down quick .. hey jack wads ... fu
S. Is putting 50 locomotives back in service. This should mean that 100 jobs are coming back to mechanical by using their own layoff ratio.
Deep cuts agreement & non agreement I’m hearing, then slowly to bring in contractors in 3rd quarter.
I have heard this from multiple sources! Have any of you?
Hunter Harrison was not a fan of contractors because he knew they financially abused the railroad. NS seems to love them, despite this fact. It's time to bring the work back in house, maintain a stable work force and get rid of the money wasting on... — read more
2 paper cuts charged to administrative offices in Atlanta
If you think the N.S. is garbage now, its only going to get worse with them hiring Hunt Cary. Anyone with a title of V.P of Operating Efficiency is there for one reason; cut jobs! He helped cripple the U.P. by cutting essential personnel during a... — read more

Extra boards Empty NO POWER FOR TRAINS Power desk arguing with Dispatch about train diesel ratings Terminals cut to the bone Another Happy Day at NS......whens the shareholders figure it out?
Now I am happy making $100/hr with 7 days off a week. I won’t tell you who I work for or what I do but I am now lower upper class after having left NS........
Worked as a locomotive electrician for a few years in chicago, can honestly say this is the worst company I ever worked for. I’m grateful though, I learned some good troubleshooting skills which in turn lead to my next job as an Electro mechanic at... — read more
Looking on the career page and it has been completely wiped clean of all job openings across the whole company. Something to come perhaps? Drastic cuts? Never seen that before.
So got my first bit of unemployment pay. From what I understand, its 80 a day now. I got that plus another 600. Does anybody know if that is some kind of covid relief thing, and if so, will it keep coming or is it a one time thing? Trying to make a... — read more
I do so much overtime that it’s no longer bearable. I’m not at the age when I can handle this pace. If I didn’t have to support my family, I wouldn’t worry at all or agree to these conditions. I just wonder what they think how much overtime a man... — read more
The hatchet cometh again boys. Get ready for more blood next month.
Who is our general chairman?
Look out NS railroaders, Lucky for UP bad for NS, is the hiring of Hunt for your operations efficiency position at the executive level. He was directly responsible for the mass layoffs (many of which are being filled again) within the dispatching... — read more
So I keep hearing about how great other companies are vs NS and how much money you are making there. So please tell us, what companies are you work for and/or what industries/job you got into using your railroad experience. I see a lot of talk but no... — read more
It’s amazing how bad you are treated at NS after seeing how great it is at other company’s. NS truly has turned into the worst company to work for in every way. So glad to be furloughed for life lol.
