Hello, new to the forums today, saw a few others posting questions regarding employment with different railroads, figured it was my turn. I recently applied via the CN website for different jobs (conductor/brakeman, clerk, laborer) on the Bessemer sub and it said "throughout Pennsylvania" but the reporting location would be Greenville. First of all, is there anything I can do to increase my chances? My hope is to get hired on as a conductor/brakeman in training.
Can anyone say where youd go for training if you were hired on the Bessemer? Or how long training would take?
Anything else you can tell me about new hires would be appreciated.
