What type of work schedule does the KCS have for TY&E? Do they offer rest day cycles or do you just lay off when you need some time?
really depends on where you work. But almost everywhere you will start on the extra board. There is a good mix of every kind of work, dodgers, locals, road jobs, etc, but seniority is quickly obtained almost everywhere on the kcs right now, except on the midsouth.
