Job seekers can locate railroad jobs on generic job search engines such as Indeed.com and Moster.com, both of which provide job listings from throughout the United States. They can also look on the job opportunities pages of rail companies such as Amtrak or Metro-North Railroad.
Individuals can search for jobs on Indeed and Monster by typing Railway or a similar word/phrase into the search engines of these two websites. Upon hitting the search buttons, both websites pull up jobs from across the United States. Users can also enter specific locations to limit their searches to certain cities or states. Indeed also enables users to limit results by salary range and job type, such as full-time, temporary or part-time. Monster has an advanced search for entering keywords or skills to further limit results.
Both Amtrak and Metro-North Railroad have job opening pages online. Users can click on job categories on the Amtrak jobs page, or utilize the website search engine to pull up hits within a certain area. Job seekers can also sign up for Amtrak's email job notification service. The Metro-North jobs page is a subset of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority page. Website visitors can click on the Metro-North Railroad link to view and search for jobs within that branch of the MTA.
