Not Bad
Distribution Technician (Current Employee) –  Birmingham4 October 2017
there is no such thing as a typical day on the railway. depening on shift pattern, area, section etc. the job can vary hugely across the company.
Depending where you work the management also varies hugley but on the most part they are very good.
YOu will learn a lot within the company about yourself as well as about the job.
the hardest part of the job is definetely the hours. Shift work means some very unsocianle hours as we have to slot track access in around the running of trains

To Many Chiefs
On-Train Technician (Former Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire23 July 2017
To many high level management members with good budget bashing ideas that always fall through.
The department I was in wasn't well known for its strong leadership, it was more known for its mutiny within the lower ranks.
Very varied pay structure - you would find yourself working with people who have been there the same time as you and do the same job yet they would be on a couple of thousand more (or less) than yourself.

dictatorship on the rails
Technician (Former Employee) –  various5 July 2017
good if your single and and want to give your life away
full of over priced management with no clue purely kept on due to being in right place at right time.
no real progression matrix that works as people can be fast tracked if they have friends or family in high positions.
regular 12 hour weekend shifts where you dont get paided for travel time but do 12 hr on site and maybe 2 hr each way travel for free.
Pros
pension
Cons
everything else

Good big company to work for but be prepared to give up your social life.Training is second to none and the salary is really good. Safety seems to be key at this company which is also great.

S&T Technician (Current Employee) –  Leicester, ENG21 September 2014
Enjoying my time with Network Rail so far.

The Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme has proven to be a great start in what I hope will be a long career within the rail industry.

Interesting and varied place of work.
Technician (Current Employee) –  Brighton15 October 2013
Days mainly focus on the assessment of existing faults within the infrastructure, be it planned work or arising faults. i.e. Tree on line or planned drainage inspections.
