Also does this happen often and how long does the freeze normally last.Welcome to life on the railroad, where downturns in traffic dictate that hiring needs no longer exist. They will start hiring again, when business improves.
In some locations, they hired conductor trainees only to turn around and immediately furlough them.
As of right now, there are very few places that actually need people. Could be a while before they start hiring again.
