I saw that Amtrak has a few Engineer openings now. I'm trying to decide if I should bother applying and if I'll have a shot at the job. I don't really know what Amtrak is looking for, so that makes it tough. I currently operate trains on a light rail system. I've been there for about a year and a half now. Do you think that's too soon to start applying? I work nights, weekends, and holidays now; so I won't have a problem adjusting to that schedule at Amtrak. I think it depends on who's applying and how many they are looking to hire.
