    Anyone here anything yet? Any idea of number of guys hiring or how long hiring process is?

    I can provide a little insight into the hiring process and how long it takes.

    You can find that information about what is involved in the process on the Amtrak Police website. http://police.amtrak.com/careers-with-the-apd.html

    The steps that you are going to go through are as follows:

    -Physical agility test (Standards can be found on the website)
    -If you pass the agility test, you will then be invited to complete the written test. (May be a few months before you hear anything)
    -If you pass the written test and are high enough on the list, you will then be invited to an oral interview which is usually conducted by a captain and either one or two Sergeants. (Once again, could be a few months between the written and interview)
    -If you pass those steps, you will then get a "blue book" in the mail which will be for your background investigation. (Just like before, a lot of waiting)
    -Once you have completed your book, you might be called to come into the office, get finger printed, photographed, and go over your book with a background investigator. (This could be a couple months to more than a year before you hear anything)
    -Once the background investigation is completed, you will have to meet with a psychiatrist.
    -Then the next to last step is that the hiring board reviews your information to decide if you would be a good candidate for hire.
    -You will then get a conditional offer of employment and will have to complete a physical evaluation.
    -If you pass all these steps, you may be offered a job with Amtrak.

    This whole process can take a year or more to complete. I know of one other person who is on these boards who had a couple years between his written exam and receiving an interview invite.

    Good luck with the process. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
