Ha ha, I'm making a confession, now. My father, uncle, and grandfather were all career railroad peeps. Railroad is a good way to go.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

This would be a great gig for a single guy/gal with no kids. I spoke to some folks working for this company years ago and they had nothing but good things to say. I would probably do it as well if not for my kids.

Most union dues are $40 -$100 a month.

Plus it's damn near impossible to get fired. Trust me..I have been trying to get some of these fools fired for 2 years. The union backs them up. Regardless of how big of a piece of chit they are.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

And now...The dancing Banana:

Why would kids be a determining factor?
You're only doing training in ATL?
