    I worked at RailCrew Xpress full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you are looking to build time with driving experience this is a good way to do so. The management was kind and understanding and the job is cut and dry. A great position for flexible people who enjoy travelling and seeing new places and faces. A plus if trains are an interest too. If you are in "available" status then you answer your phone and accept the jobs. Thats how you build credibility and you earn the next job.

    Cons

    Maybe not a great place for people unwilling to be flexible, not a good place for careless drivers or those with road rage of any caliber.
