The train master told us that this position was for "road" work, not "yard" work. "If anyone is here looking for a yard work, please leave. They are filled and we have no open positions." He went on to explain "if hired, you will be taking trains from North Jersey to Hagerstown, MD // Harrisburg, PA // Allentown, PA // and out towards Chicago on some "corridor"". He said 90% was intermodel, with a little bit of mixed freight and some tankers, but almost all intermodal. He said we would be gone around 20-25 days a month. I was clad as I preferred road work if given a choice. I'm use to being on the road 20+ days a month in my current job. Luckily, I got the call this morning at 7:30 with a conditional offer. I believe we will be going to Atlanta for training fairly soon (approx.6 weeks) from what he told us. I just have the usual physical, drug, stength test, and background check to go thru. Thanks to everyone who posted and help "jump start" my RR career. Your knowledge and experiences were invaluable to me. I don't believe I would've been offered a job on my first attempt if I wasn't so well prepared. Much appreciated !!!Did you get a class date yet? If so how long was it after you completed your physical and background investigation?
