Very laid back atmosphere

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
No number games here. You work at the pace needed but no requirements. Don't have a certain amount of stuff to get done to be productive. The bosses are not pushy about numbers.

Pros

Laid back

Cons

No room for advancement

Zero to No Training

Lack of training with this company. When I was hired I only had 8 hours of training from the person who I was replacing. They expected you to know things that they never trained you on.

Small company with no growth

Small company, no pto time. A lot of drama. Company does not care about work life balance except if you’re upper management . Takes 2 weeks off between Christmas and new year unpaid unless you use your week pto that’s allotted per year. Doesn’t assess your performance other than listening to other employees perception of it. No room for advancement. Insurance premiums expensive with no coverage.

You never knew what was going to happen!

Putting out fires in other departments, was almost a daily thing! Lack of training for employees and middle management was their goal. If you could do the work and it was not in your job description or was in someone else's department, it's now your work! To much work for most people in that position I was in.

Pros

No pro's!

Cons

To many to list!!!!!

Great!

Great place to work. Loved the travel. Loved the hours. Good team of people. Teamwork was very important to everyone. Safety was top priority and never had an accident. Dangerous work requires extra saftey procedures.

Do not recommend

Poor training and little help.. they don’t care about their employees. No advancement. Management is awful. As well as the corporate workers. So much drama and politics.. so much unexplained firing that goes on.. lots of unethical actions. It was a few years since I’ve been there but have kept in contact with many employees and know that nothing has changed

A&K Railroad Materials Inc.

I use to enjoy my job but too many bosses, and change of bosses made it hard to do my job. A&K Railroad Materials is a nice place to work but they are unorganized at times.

A great place to learn the business

They demand that you know your product, which puts you ahead of the many in the rail industry. Working conditions are tough and demanding, but you are compensated well in return.

Railroad materials yard.

This was my longest job, and honestly, the one I've enjoyed most. It's tough work, out in the elements constantly, but provides decent compensation and benefits, a great weekly schedule to balance your life and the employees and management are easy to work with.

favoritism

When you join onto a labor crew! you will find that most of them are ran by husband and wife or all the top positions are family members!! This causes a favoritism! I have seen so much of it during my travel with this company!! I wish somebody would review their policy on family members being on the same crew!!!
