I am a union railroad foreman , I have worked for the rr for 17 years. I decided to try an easier version of the rr and become certified in track inspection. Back in june of 08 I contacted Allen RR and spoke with them and to make a long story short they allowed me to take the test for less because I had so much experience. So I took the FRA 213 RR test and passed, I did have some trouble along the way while studying for the test, and I called Sue Allen and she explained to me what I was having trouble with so in that regaurd she does know what she is talking about. After passing the test I was to go to Stanton Ky and meet up with Mr Allen to sign a contract for 3 months. He made it sound real good as far as relocating to where I wanted to be and the $ that I would be making. When I showed up I was expected to take a safety test , then he wanted me to work with a volunteer to make sure I know what I was doing! What a Joke! Before I left he said that his wife would send out my certification and the conract. Well as you all know that did not happen. He had called me and asked me to inspections in OH and turn them in by e-mail and then once his wife looked them over I was supposed to be paid 10-15 days later. As you all know this did not happen. It is now the end of Aug and still no pay or certificate. All I get is a none answering of Steve Allens phone which is total bs to leave a message. However if you call his secretaries in which by the way is a different one every time I called, he will call you immediately and tell you not to contact them again because they are agents and they dont know about pay. He was defianetly pissed off. BEWARE OF THIS SLIME AND LETS BRING HIM DOWN!!!

Allen Railroad

AUTHOR: MikeCohoon - (United States of America)

I am one of the four that had a case brought against Allen Railroad, I only knew of myself and one other he was an Allen also but just the same last name. We won the case the State of Kentucky filed a lien against them. So far none of us have collected a dime, the State and I just spoke to someone at that office today so far hasn't been able to seize anything from them even with a state lien. It would be interesting to find out the addresses they live at and the cars they drive, to see if they own them or are renting them. The State was really shocked that they were still operating at their location they had me working at.

Yes, I passed their track inspection school, I pulled a few cross ties  and replaced them on a railroad they claimed they owned and I found out it belonged to R.J. Corman and a museum in Lexington, Ky. I even drove a GP-28 with the engineer the old guy that was in charge of track maintance was the brother in law of Corman and I had met him from Guthrie, Ky years before. He filled me in on the scoop Allen saw me talking to him and I was fired on the spot. No pay check no 2 week notice no reason, no reimbursement for moving there.

Yes I was to answer the phone and I solicited customers for them for track inspection, the place was a boiler room operation, you were constantly under pressure or harassment, Jim Allen had a web cam pointed at you all the time to make sure you didn't have an idle second. I tried to endure it knowing I was about to go into the field, it never happened. I saw several secretaries they were replaced constantly.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

can you believe this guy?

AUTHOR: Teresa - (U.S.A.)

as an ex-employee involved in a nonpaid wages dispute with these people i understand how you feel. i have never came in contact with anyone like them. there are four ex-employees in our case against them filed with the ky labor board and at this point a findings of fact has been substaniated and sent to the legal department for further action. between the four of us the total is around 4,000.oo in unpaid wages.

they have left a trail of unpaid employees from indiana to kentucky to arizona. this is not just ranting you can find plenty of proof online and with a few well placed phone calls.

i want to see this place shut down. i cant tell you how many guys i spoke with who felt ripped off by these two. as soon as i realized the whole thing is just a joke i cut my losses and got out of there before i became involved in some legal matter that was not my own.

check back often i will leave updates on how the case is going. you may be able to file a federal labor case against them because you are not in the same state.
