want a railroad career? "take it from us"

Assuming that experience is key to getting a railroad career and you have none, wouldn't it stand to reason to go to someone who has a lot of experience to help you get your railroad career started?

RailroadJobs.Biz has hired and trained thousands of railroad workers in our combined 70 years serving the railroad industry. We are a track maintenance and construction company. We have built or repaired thousands of miles of railroad track. We know that track is basically built the same way today as it was 150 years ago and that you learn most of everything there is to know about building track in the first 5 years. After that it just applying what you know for the rest of your Railroad Career while looking for advancements.

RailroadTraining.Biz can double your first 5 years experience when you start with a FRA 213 Track Safety Standards, 40 hours online certification.

Hiring railroad companies aren't necessary looking for seasoned railroad workers for two reason.

First, because unemployed experienced railroad workers just don't exist. RailroadJobs.Biz application data of the last 4,500 applications shows that 98% of all experienced railroad workers are working.

Second reason why hiring railroads don't hire overly experienced railroaders is the new hire company "doesn't want to teach an old dog new tricks

RailroadTraining.Biz can balance this out by certifying you with the basic FRA 213 TSS and having the hiring railroad train the hands on, the way they want it done.  
When Appling for a railroad job which email address do you want to use, your present personal one or a YourName@RailroadTraining.Biz one?
The average Railroad annual pay packages....$107,085! Are you worth that to a railroad today?

By comparison, the average full-time employee in all industries earned $51,888 in wages and $12,665 in benefits.
