  • Norfolk Southern

    They are hiring in my area and I checked the old threads about salary but nobody gives figure. Thye just say that NS pays well or is comparable to local agencies. Does anyone know what the pay ranges (i.e. 35-40k, 50-60k) are for a special agent position with NS? Thanks.

        RR Retirement

        Yes, it is 30 years and 60 years of age. You contribute to federal RR Retirement instead of Social Security. The retired guys I talk to say that it is well worth the wait. I still have about 31 years to go, so I don't know if I can wait that long. I will have about 35 years on when I hit 60!!!

          RR pay

          I believe that all the class 1 railroads start off their officers at least $50K a year, depending on experience.

              I applied for two and got canned from both of them because I wasn't state certified in the states I applied for. Got the emails pretty quickly.....

              I was hoping that they would take me because I was state certified and experienced....and let me do the lateral with the state.....but they only wanted folks from that state......

                Im Guessing

                Im guessing its because of the economic times everyone is currently in. Why pay to certify someone when they can easily find qualified applicants in that particular state. Just my .02.

                  they will certify you, you really shouldn't go through they're website. it's better to go through that department directly. i've been seeing NS hiring non certified applicants a lot lately.

                      NS is not hiring uncertified officers.
                      I don't answer recruitment messages....

                        NS does hire uncertified applicants, i've never heard of a uncertified officer. Bearcat if you are interested in chicago let me know. NS has taken out of state certification. it doesn't matter what state you are certified in since you work on private property (i.e. rail line) and under Section 1704 of the U.S. Crime Control Act of 1990 it clearly states that, why do you think it's possible for RR police to go to different states where there is an indecent on their track or in the yard. contact the department directly.

                          Norfolk Southern Corporation, a multi-billion dollar transportation company, is currently seeking a Police Officer to work in the Chicago, Illinois area.

                          POLICE OFFICER

                          Candidates are required to be certified in the state of Illinois or possess other transferable certification. You must be at least 21 years of age, willing to work various shifts (both inside & out), have good vision, be in good health, have own means of transportation and phone, and willing to reside in the area. Candidates who have public police officer experience are preferred, as well as those who possess an Associate or Bachelor degree in Police Science or Criminal Justice.

                          As an industry leader, Norfolk Southern offers a salary commensurate with education and experience. The successful candidate will be eligible for a bonus and an excellent benefits package which includes medical, dental, life insurance, 401(k), retirement and tuition reimbursement.

                          For immediate consideration, apply online today. Special Agent- Chicago

                          Norfolk Southern
                          EOE

                          The job posting says it all. You must be certified to be considered. They take certified applicants from other states, but when you transfer from another state you must be able to meet the state standards that you work and reside in. You will then be required to take that states exam to get that states certification. Once you work for the railroad you can work anywhere in the system because of the way federal law works.

                            Dude...no offense....but....

                            A. The annoucement clearly states they aren't wanting to hire folks that are certified out of state....

                            B. I don't want IL....

                            C. Unless you are in HR with NSCorp....or a VP....I seriously doubt you can get folks jobs....

                            It is what it is. Why would they say one thing....then do the exact opposite...??

                              This seems like an interesting position. Are the duties primarily investigative or patrol? Do Norfolk’s SA’s wear plain clothes or a uniform? Are you issued a take home vehicle? If so is it unmarked or marked? Does anyone have a better idea of what the salaries are other than what has already been posted? I have a good LE job right now and I don't want to get involved in an application process without having all the details first.
