    Very rarely.. They would rather see you inside the station.

    You will handle law enforcement at all properties owned by Amtrak in DC, MD and VA. Technically you can do traffic however its not your job unless its serious and you might not work a squad. Most Amtrak cops work 8 hr tours. Yes you can transfer however you go to the bottom of the seniority list when you transfer districts.

    Easy. Not ever HR person handles cops or has the ability to "look up" for every applicant the pay scale. Dont like it, dont apply.
    So you don't see a problem with it?

Pay is a huge factor when taking a job, and 41k is over a 10k a year paycut for me. Its important to know if later down the line, I would make steps that would make up the difference.

    I want to move on from corrections to a LE career, but I'm not going to make a fiscally unsound decision either.

    I would also like to make an informed decision before I waste anyone's time with the process, and burn my accrued leave needlessly. /rant

    I guess its just me. Don't like the way Amtrak works, find another gig. Plain and simple.
    Its not a matter of how it "works" its simply a matter of providing basic job information to an applicant.

    Because the DC division actually goes to the middle of the New Carrolton platform. Plus DC also swaps or details P/O's to Baltimore all the time.

    As far as pay, Its about $41k and some change but you need to factor in OT and the lady might not know about the salary. As far as filling spots, they will not tell canidates as they keep a list and might make several hires off of it over time.

    Why would you attend a MPTC academy, when you would be assigned DC? I contacted HR, and asked for a payscale, the person seemed bothered by my question, and just referred me to the starting salary of $21.50 an hour. I also asked how many positions they were looking to fill, and got the "I don't know".

    So far, I can't say I have a positive impression on how things will continue from here, but I only contacted one person.

    I really would like a payscale for DC, any ideas on how to get ahold of one since the lady in HR didn't seem to know, or want to be bothered by it?

    I think we are talking about the same guy. He flatly told me that they weren't sending candidates there "anymore", but there were other things that came my way that I wouldn't say have made me confident in said individual. That's why I came here to see if he may be mistaken.
