Getting Put “Out Of Service”

Hey guys I’m interested in the railroad. Have been doing some research....Was curious to what “getting put out of service” looks like. Do the Trainmaster drill you on what happened or do you just kinda get told to go home. Is there like a formal statement given? If it has to go all the way to an investigation how does that all work? Is it like a trial?

I appreciate any input.

The railroad used to be a great good paying career with a real chance for the average person to make a decent wage, have good health insurance for their family, and a stable financial future. Now days the railroad is all about profits, bowing down to its shareholders, and not caring about its employees. There is no stable future here (unless you are high up on the food chain) you are treated as being expendable and they let you know it. Not a recommendation for someone that values their family time.

Think long and hard about another career. Getting pulled out of service can last for years these days.

You’re formally sent home. There’s a paper trail. If you have job insurance you get paid. If you don’t you’re effed. Get job insurance
