I love reading some of these stories.  CSX hasn't changed a bit.  I was
so lucky that my doctor got me out of that hell hole.  They treat
employees pathetic.  I was a clerk in the GOB.  If you really want to
see some kiss butt jerks hang out there a while.  I use to love working
at the railroad.  Now their agenda is get them.  Mikey boy would try to
make you think he cares.  If you're young, take advantage of the
tuition refund program.  Let CSX pay for your education and get out of
there.  They have figured out if they keep hiring new people, we don't
have to give them 5 weeks vacation, 3 weeks sick pay or personal leave
days.  Than they harress senior employees.  No laws against seniority
discrimination and CSX knows as long as they hire a couple of older
people they can get around age discrimination laws.  Sure hope those
guys on the 15th floor on Water Street have been practicing threading
that camel through the eye of a needle.  Keep up the post.  It's very
entertaining now that I don't have to tolerate those a-holes.  God
bless and good luck.

Interesting stories, just wanted to add mine.

Went to work Jan 1963 as a Fireman.
May 1964 Arb award 282 and I got $1500.00 pay off.
June 1964 came back to the same place as a Brakeman.
I was cut off for one month in 1966 (oldest cut off) and could pick and
choose when I wanted to work. My phone was ringing all of the time.

The RR works in so many different ways. I was lucky and never had a

Oh almost forgot, that $1500.00 severance from the company pay was
grossed up at the end of the year, then taken back.

Shattered Dream? 

It happens. First 3-4 years it'll be difficult. I initially hired out
in March 1977 did the physical got the call to start work on July 6,
1977. It didn't last long. I worked 18 days then was furloughed for 3
1/2 months got recalled in October for 6 weeks then furloughed for
another 3 1/2 months. Furloughs went on like this for the next 3 years.
It's just the railroad. It's not a normal mon-fri 7-3 job. Shattered
Dreams? I don't know what they tell people in Atlanta. Unless everyone
in your class was from the same area everyones situation was different.
Unless someone happens to hit it at the right moment the chances of
delays and furloughs are going to happen. It's been going on for as
long as railroads have been around. There will be retirements in the
near future it might not be fast enough for some people then again it
never has been. Only a small percentage of people I worked with never
had to experience furloughs. In 1979-1981 during a recession a lot of
people some with up to 10 years seniority got furloughed for several
years. Some of us from Michigan an Ohio took transfers elsewhere to
Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. It's the nature of the beast. One
can't take it personal.

Shattered Dreams

Hang on!  The company expects there to be a shortage after furloughs.
The longer employees are furloughed, the better chance they have of
loosing them because they found work elsewhere. when it comes time to
call everyone back, a shortage will be created therefore creating a
need for more employees to be run through the school.  Im guessing you
are not military or you would have been saved. Military pays for the
first year salary and training. A TURNOVER IS A MUST! It has been
pointed out on this site numerous times that the company needs a
turnover rate in order to keep the revolving door spinning at the
school and the grants for new hires coming in.  The order is to get rid
of all old heads that can leave, protected employees who are costing the
company several thousands a year with old grandfathered perks and the
lower 1% of new hires in each class. As long as the school is open
there will be a mandatory order to get rid of people to make holes for
the new ones. You can not flood a market with employees and not have a
turnover rate. It is a must.  So if you really want to work on the rr
then you need to hang in there and let them "run off" and fire as
many as they can. You will eventually move up quick.

If making less money isn't a huge deal I would go find a decent
shortline railroad to work for. Where you can accually RAILROAD and not
have to worry about management hiding in the bushes waiting for you to
do something they didnt like. This railroad is run the WRONG way. I
still can't believe they wonder why they lose people to Amtrak. CSX
management need to take their heads out of their vaginas and see whats
really goin on.

Hey Shattered:

CSX has been telling that lie for at least 15 years. The only thing
that has changed is the annual pay is up from about $36K and you
didn't have to pay $10K to go to the college of railroad knowledge.

You didn't say which terminal your at...don't. Check out the Railroad
retirement web site, there's a job board and links to
other carrier's web sites.

Usually the furloughs don't begin until Sept. Sounds like they hired
you for a terminal that didn't need any body to begin with.
I was hired for Mobile but they didn't love me or the other 6 or 7
that CSX hired for Mobile. We were given a choice...go to New Orleans
or go to the street. It took a year and a six month furlough
but we all got to Mobile.

Hang in there...until you get a couple of years seniority, you'll be
subject to furloughs.

In December 2011 I was interviewed for conductor trainee and was offered
the job.  We were told about upcoming retirements and many positions
opening, including management. In their job description for conductor
it stated the position was full time, average salary, 43K a year. 
Having graduated from the REDI in Atlanta after 6 weeks intensive
studying and maintaining a 94 average I reached my home terminal only
to be told that when my OJT was over, I would be laid off.  The folks I
worked with are the best most knowledgeable group of railway people and
the work interesting and enjoyable however, why in the world would CSX
hire so many new people only to lay them off.  Many of the old heads
can't hold a permanent job. The company reports records profits.  I
simply do not understand.  I suppose this is how corporate America
works.  Very disappointing news.  I am looking elsewhere for full time

Got this as a email...some food for thought!

Warren Buffett,in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best
quotes about the debt ceiling:
I could end the deficit in 5 minutes, he told CNBC. You just pass a law
that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all
sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took
only three months and eight days to be ratified!  Why? Simple!  The
people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell
phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven took one year or less
to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a
minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of
those to do likewise.  In three days, most people in The United States
of America will have the message.  This is one idea that really should
be passed around.
 Congressional Reform Act of 2012
1. No tenure and no pension.
A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and they receive
no pay when they are out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social
Security system immediately.  All future funds flow into the Social
Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It
may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all
Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses its current health care system and participates in
the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
effective 12/1/12.  The American people did not make this contract with
Congressmen  and women. Congress made all these contracts for
themselves.  Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The
Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve
their term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only
take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. 
Don't you think it's time?

I think CSX has gone over the top. I got a call from a friend/co-worker
the other day. CSX was getting bad when I retired but not that
outragious. I guess it's definitely taken a turn for the worse. He
told me about a train crew that got banner tested not once but three
times on the same train. That's overkill. I know Richmond has John
"Silly" Baker as the RFE the past 20 years. John was a rule nut
before all this came about. Back in the day higher ups scolded him for
being anal retentive. Now John is free to be as "silly" as he wants
to be. Most of the TM's that my friend mentioned weren't around when
I was working. He also mentioned Doug Beverage who I remember slightly
as being a GRFE failing an engineer with over 30 years for knocking off
the air brakes to recharge them before departing. DUH!!! That doesn't
make sense. These officials that haven't been at the throttle for
decades seem to pull new schidt out their rear ends on a whim. My
friend mentioned that the Huntington Division has had 121
investigations leading the pack this year with Florence Division
running second at 24. Maybe that's why the rumors of a swap between
Swafford and "Mr Potato Head" Frulla. He did mention another division
but they only had 8 investigations this year. Something wrong on the
