Are starting wage rates available? I did not see them in listing? Are these public?

blue streak 1
June 26th  It is very puzzling that there are not any vacancies listed for east coast trains.  So we have Crescent, Meteor, maybe Cardinal and LSL not listing any vacancies.  

I'm going to take a wild guess* in that they hire groups based on the RR's they will run on and rulebooks needed.  

*_may be wrong. 

  

The opinions expressed here represent my own and not those of

my employer, any other railroad, company, or person.

One of our conductors is waiting for an interview with Amtrak for a New Mexico opening.  They do it backwards.  He's already had a physical and drug test.  Usually the interview comes first.

From my Jacksonville days - I recall seeing 'advertisements' posted by the FRA for job 'vacancies' for all sorts of positions from all the railroad carriers.  Positions advertized ranged from executive type positions to craft type positions.

Never too old to have a happy childhood!

I've seen similar "Help Wanted" billboards posted by CSX in the Chicago area.
