Railroading is a way of life that gets in your blood. There is a great sense of satisfaction to playing a vital role in an essential, international industry that helps drive the global economy. While that satisfaction is likely true across the railroad industry, Kansas City Southern is not an average railroad company.
In 1887, Arthur Stilwell constructed a north-south railroad while others were heading east and west, setting the tone for a century-old legacy of unique vision; entrepreneurial spirit; resilience in the face of adversity; and, willingness to challenge conventional wisdom. Building on that legacy, the culture of today’s Kansas City Southern is further defined by a new vision for the future and a core set of values - Safety, Customer Focus, Communication, Teamwork, Initiative & Innovation, and Diversity & Civility. At Kansas City Southern, we believe that the way we do business is as important as the business we do.
In addition to a culture that allows employees to thrive, Kansas City Southern encourages ingenuity with an award, recognizing employees who see a problem (or opportunity), find a solution and use whatever authority and resources are available to get a job done well - accomplishing what was previously thought could not be done.
If you want to do work that is creative and strategic, be heard, grow professionally, be valued by your employer, and know that you are making a meaningful contribution to an essential industry, a global supply chain and the larger economy, Kansas City Southern may be the place for you.
