My son works in the railroad
First of all congratulations. I'm sure it was a very trying process just getting selected for an interview and training and now he is all graduated. Good for him.
My son went through a gruelling hiring process and out of 500 applicants he was one of 20 who graduated 3 months ago. Now for the on the job training. He tells me it is very stressful but the management team encourages their employees to take frequent breaks. He is a train traffic controller and apparently it is almost as complex as the air ones but they get all the glory:whoopie:
My son was a little lost (but boy did he have a great time
being lost) since he graduated from university 4 years ago. He lived, worked and then took a lot of time off to travel. But when the economy turned 2 years ago he really realized that his carefree ways were not building him any security.
When this job opportunity came up he jumped at it and really did everything to prove that his skills could transfer to this job. Now he finds it stressful but at least he is making use of his capacity to learn excellence instead of relying on his good looks and charm.
to get him through his days.
He shares some of his experiences with me and I think your son will be going through similar ones. Management promotes a cohort process and so his fellow coworkers will be a good source of help for him. It seems to be a great practical work site where due process belongs to strict adherence to honest practice, a marked contrast to profit before people mantra found in many corporate offices. Keep us posted on his progress. A fellow mom.
