Work on the Train

If you’ve ever dreamt of working onboard an Amtrak train, these are the jobs for you! Conductors, Locomotive Engineers, and members of our On Board Services team all consider a moving train to be their office.

Conductors and Assistant Conductors are responsible for the safety of Amtrak trains as well as their passengers and crew. The work is fast-paced and demanding: conductors must adhere to strict safety rules, while simultaneously providing superior customer service to Amtrak’s passengers. Conductors do more than just take tickets – they are like the captain of the train, and must be familiar with the Physical Characteristics and Operating Rules of the route on which they operate at all times.

Locomotive Engineers are responsible for safely and efficiently operating trains at all hours of the day and night, and under all kinds of weather conditions. You will operate the controls in the locomotive cab while receiving radio communications from others and visually monitoring railroad signals, track conditions, and other external factors, which could affect the movement of the train.

On Board Services (OBS) employees work aboard Amtrak trains to ensure customers have a safe, comfortable, and pleasant journey with first-class amenities. Amtrak is a 24 hour, 7 days a week operation, and OBS employees often ride a train along its entire journey - ranging from a few hours to two days in length, depending on the route. This will include working nights, weekends and holidays. OBS roles are both unique and challenging, but if you like to be on the move and want a job that is far from cookie-cutter, this might be the role for you.
