Put your military experience on the right track

Amtrak has a long history of providing career opportunities to veterans as well as active military members. We value the leadership, reliability and dedication that the armed forces bring to our team.

We have a team of dedicated recruiters who will work with you to understand your military skills experience and training to find career opportunities that best align with your capabilities.

Our culture

Because so many of our employees have served our country in the armed forces, you will feel comfortable and welcome as you transition to the Amtrak team. More than 3,000 employees are veterans or active members of the U.S. Armed Forces, National Guard and Reserves. They bring solid skill sets and experience that are helping Amtrak move America where it wants to go. Amtrak is proud of its diverse workforce - they reflect the nation we serve.
