#AmtrakFAQ: Is Amtrak hiring?

Is Amtrak hiring?

Yes. Amtrak is always looking for new talent to join our team. You can search and apply for open jobs by keyword, category or location in our Career Center at jobs.amtrak.com.

How does the hiring process work?

In order to be considered for any type of position, you must fill out the online application. Resumes that are mailed, e-mailed or hand-delivered to Amtrak or an Amtrak employee will not be considered.

Once you have submitted an online application, our employment team will review it and notify you via e-mail if you have been selected to participate in the next step of the recruiting process. This may include taking the Amtrak Culture Fit and other pre-qualification assessments that may be required for the position to which you are applying.

Due to the high volume of applications received, you will only hear from an Amtrak representative if you are selected for an interview.

We proudly support and encourage U.S. Veterans to apply for all positions. All positions require pre-employment background verification, medical review and pre-employment drug screen. Amtrak is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
