Alot depends on the job he does and how much training and Seniority he has. Several people in my family work for BNSF. Not one travels. Some work alot, but it is voluntary overtime. My dad is an engineer and every once in a while he has to do short runs but he mainly works in the yard.
I believe starting pay is pretty decent. around 12/hour. Benefits are good too. My family has no complaints :)
