What people are saying about Amtrak
The Work-Life Bowl
Just applied for a job with Amtrak as a PASSENGER ENGINEER TRAINEE in Oakland, California one week ago. A few days later, I received an email from Amtrak stating that they would be "pursuing other applicants". There was no explanation why they had rejected my application. Not to mention they did this without giving me a chance to interview. I have since tried applying to other jobs with Amtrak only to receive the same email almost immediately afterwards. Can anyone explain what's going on?
Customer Service Representative
Hi. If this isn't the appropriate place to post this, then sorry. I'm going to Amtrak's hiring event tomorrow and I'm not quite sure what to look for. I have experience in customer service with the food industry, but I'm not sure what to look for. Advice?

The pros of working for Amtrak is the training and benefits. The salary is union wages by the hour and then, over time according to the union regulations. There is usually over time when a train is late. The benefits include medical, dental, optical, a 401K plan, life and sick leave insurance.
The job requires you to work long hours and to be on your feet all day. The breaks are according to union regulations which is taught to the employee during training.3
