Anybody work for BNSF?

Just curious to see if you know of any open positions at this time. I had a buddy who passed away recently who was a train dispatcher and he seemed to like it, plus it's supposed to pay very well. Thought I would look in to it.

Thanks for any info you may be able to provide me with.

Josh

Thanks. Just checked. Only a couple positions available here in Fort Worth. Only about half a dozen available nationwide. I'll keep my eyes peeled though.

Man I've been tring to get on with them for a while. Never get a hit to come in for an interview. From what I hear if your not prior military, a minority or a woman you have a long shot to get on with them.

Red and White 98R1...Look now cause in a second I'm gonna pass you

You can pass me now, sold the bike =(

Alot of guys I worked with at FedEx left to do the dispatch thing. They said you're pretty much BNSF's bitch your first yr or so, but the money def. rocks. They also all went through the class at TCC NW...probably worth looking into.

I'm a train dispatcher for BNSF and pretty much everything that has been mentioned so far is to some degree correct. There won't be any dispatchers hired for some time right now. They put about 20 dispatchers in fort worth on an as needed call board and it's expected to be mid next year before they are all back to work full time status. We do all have to go through 10 weeks of class at TCC before we get to start. Until the economy picks back up they really are only going to hire positions that they have an immediate need for.

Nah dude. I had talked to him about it before he died. He seemed to like it. Plus, my mom used to date a guy back when I was in highschool who was making like $80,000 a year and he said that they only allow him to work 40 hours a week. I figure doing that and trying to go to school, at least taking online classes would be pretty sweet.

Yeah, dude. I remember you from the Villas. I think that I actually saw your car at the 24 hr fitness on Western Center a while back. Assuming you still have the bullitt of course. It was in early 2008. I moved back up here late 2007.
