OMAHA, Neb. – If you've ever dreamed about working on the railroad all the live-long day, now's your chance to fulfill the fantasy and get a major cash bonus.
The report says Union Pacific is offering the bonuses to train crews in locations like Denver, Kansas City and Nebraska for jobs that pay up to $60,000 in the second year of employment.
Candidates who are electricians and are qualified to inspect, repair and maintain train engines will receive the full $25,000.
BNSF claims a shortage of qualified candidates is the reason for the heavy recruitment campaign where its new employees can make up to $15,000 in bonuses.
