Peeked in at BNsf, and UP... Neither one hiring in the mech. depts. A year ago UP had openings across the country.

BNsf had openings at major shops systemwide. Now? Zero!

What changed? Every damn thing! My advice ta anyone trying ta hire on for any openings...whether TY&E, MOW, S&S, structures, communications... Any position at all in any department...

Keep calling. Update your application every three/six months. Let 'em know you're still interested in working for the railroad. And IF you already have a job, hold onto it. Steady employment history is your best bet for being hired.

That, or verifiable military service, and some background education, training or documented experience.

Times are tough, and good jobs are hard ta come by. Persitence pays off. Eventually this freeze will thaw, and the bigs will hire again.

Lear patience. And protect your job. Always protect your job.
