I am currently employed with a class 1 railroad but have applied for a conductor position with Genesee & Wyoming and was curious what the starting pay is and health insurance cost are per month? Also is it a union job or does it depend on the line you hire on with? Any help would be appreciated.
I am just trying to helpful, this is what I know. I have an ex-coworker who was wrongly deemed unfit for duty after medical leave from the worst class 1 to work for. (his previous supervisor hated him bcuz he stood up to him) Anyway he got a job as signal maintainer w/ the G&W. He says they pay a couple bucks less an hour, the medical ins is similar to what he had. But(!) he is so much happier at the G&W. He looks forward to going to work each day, gets along w/ his boss & coworkers, he really likes his job.
