      I was curious as Obama has pledged huge grants to LE agencies that hire vets. Its been evident on the Federal side, now the carry over to local/state may be happening. Strictly a hypothesis on my part, though I'm more than a little peeved that I didn't even get an invite to test as a certified officer.

          I'm not sure where jsimmons2932 seems to be getting his information, but please take it with a grain of salt.

          Amtrak hired about 18 from the last process, which began in the fall of 2010. There were 3 that were sent to the academy last year and 2 other recruits begin next week. They plan on doing another 15-18 from this list as well. I don't work in Human Resources, so I can't comment on why some people received invitations already and why others didn't. Last I heard, there were about 200 applications submitted.

            Amtrak does not require a cert.

                    Pardon my last post then, please take dante810's information with a grain of salt instead.

                    Amtrak is authorized to hire 18 this year, that's the magic number so far. I can honestly say with all certainty that they will not send all of them to the academy. I'm sure at least 80% hired will be certified P/O's from other departments.

                    To those that haven't heard anything yet and are concerned about their application, go back to The Blue Line's job announcement and send an e-mail to the individual listed at the bottom of the job posting.

                        Per the Captain at testing. Around 360 applied. 180 invited. Hiring 8. Groups of 20 for physical with 1-4 applicants not showing per group.

                          Two of the Amtrak PO's said that Amtrak was testing around a hundred and hiring 8 for sure and possibly an additional 5. They weren't sure if the additional 5 were going to be from this test or if they were going to test again for them. I don't know how many no shows there was from my time slot but 3 or 4 failed.

                              One failed the bench press, two failed the agility run with the cones. I think we lost one other along the way but not sure on which event.
