To my knowledge, Union Pacific hiring is static. The railroad has many train crews furloughed and hundreds of engines parked on sidings in the desert and other locations. UPRR is still making a profit but share prices are down. The decline in the use of coal for power generation has reduced rail traffic through our city on the main line quite a bit. Agriculture is also in a swoon so shipments o corn and soybeans in also down. Those considering employment with the railroad should also keep in mind that union contracts will affect almost every aspect of their employment. But the $$ and benefits are good as pointed out.

It's good that BITOG members post jobs that other folks on here might be interested in applying for.

I've also posted jobs on here when there's been openings in the area that I work.

Send some locomotives and some of those oil cars up here. We need them for shipping oil to the States.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

I've been working the rails since '92. Piece of cake. Layed rails. Ballast operations. Wheel repairs and replacement. Name it...I've done it. Operated steam engines up to today's modern diesels.

Take a peek at the division I maintain and operate:

I almost decided to be a conductor for a major railroad after I retired from the Air Force, but I opted to go civil service instead because of the travel involved with the RR. I think I made the right choice...

That conductor job is not easy, lots of walking from one end of the train and back to the engine, you have to check each coupling twice, so if the train is a mile long, u have to walk 2 miles in all kinds of weather,,,been there as an assistant driving them to the trains,,,but you can promote out of it and become an engineer,,,but it is good money,,

Freight train conductors do not punch tickets,lol... it's a whole different definition than the old days of a ticket puncher,,watched too many old cowboy train movies...lol
