CHICAGO - With air travel something of a mess right now, more people are considering traveling by train — and Amtrak is hiring.
There's a push right now for 4,000 new employees, and a lot of the job openings are in Chicago.
The jobs have benefits, union representation, and starting pay for many of them is over $20 an hour.
"Work in our mechanical shops to maintain our train cars. There are management jobs like mine. There are other jobs onboard the trains, whether it's being a train attendant or a service attendant," said Marc Magliari, Amtrak's Senior Public Relations Manager.
Amtrak's job listings are on careers.amtrak.com.
