    No juice required.

    There's no rhyme or reason as to how Human Resources choses their candidates for the process. I was hired back in late 2011 with seven other guys and the majority of us didn't know a single name/badge working at the department. I can answer any basic questions about the department you may have, but I will note that I resigned to another department after approximately one year of working at Amtrak.

    I'll offer what little information I have..... I first went through testing with them back towards the end of 2011, completed the written, physical, oral interview, was told they were looking to hire about 18, completed the background investigation, 2 psychological tests and in April 2014 I did their oral psych interview. That was the last time I ever heard from them.... I heard rumors they hired a couple guys who already had the academy. During the whole process they've always said until you get a notice in the mail saying you've been disqualified that you are still being considered. Haven't gotten anything like that. When I applied I saw the ad on the BlueLine and emailed in a resume' I never did the online app so for those that have applied through there I can't offer much help. I do know that they don't do eligibility lists so there's no time table and they have said numerous times that it is the Federal government so they like to drag their heels.

    Most of the time this is the case.

    I have heard of this and actually worked with two officers that UPRR sent to the academy. They were already railroad employees and switched over to management and became Special Agents.

    A relative of mine was hired by Amtrak and certified by them.

    I just filled out an application online for this position. Is the testing process something separate I need to look into, or will my application trigger any notification of testing?


    Thank you!

    Yea that's a bit weird that they don't communicate as to wether you were selected or not, but yes good luck to all. I probably would gage the process on the next cpd metro academy if in fact they will pull some non certs...
