Veteran Career Opportunities

We Are Honored to Help US Veterans Find a Secure and Stable Career at Amtrak

Amtrak has a long history of providing career opportunities to veterans as well as active military members. We value the leadership, reliability and high-tech skills veterans bring to Amtrak. Your ability to adapt to a dynamic environment, your dedication and focus to safety and your experience gained while on military duty directly relates to a variety of operational and non-operational career opportunities at Amtrak. Your career at Amtrak will be as rewarding as your military career.

We have a team of dedicated recruiting professionals who will work with you to understand your military skills, experience and training to find career opportunities that best align with your capabilities. Because so many of our employees have served our country in the armed forces, you will feel comfortable and welcome as you transition to the Amtrak team. In a continued effort to support the nation’s service men and women, Amtrak has set a goal of ensuring 25 percent of its new hires are veterans by 2015.
