does the Shore Line East RR hire its own employees? or are they either Amtrack or Metro-North employees?

i'm interested in working for them but their website has no information about employment.

Currently SLE is ran by Amtrak with Amtrak people.
As of Jan 1 2006 it may be another operator will run SLE, it could very well be MNCR, or maybe CDOT may start their own commuter agency and try to hire Amtrak and MNCR people to run it.

They could but why should they ??
anytime Amtrak uses SLE equipment they got to pay SLE.
