I have been trying to reach Springfield, Il Amtrak station at (hidden), no one answers and then after so many rings states enter your access code, if need new phone number needs to be listed or someone at station needs to start answering phone.
My name is Peggy and my husband and I use Amtrak for round trip travel to Jacksonville Florida from Baltimore Maryland and have been very pleased. My husband is blind and had an appointment in Philadelphia, PA. I have leg problems so walking and driving poses problems for me, so we decided to take Amtrak round trip. We made reservations for Nov 29, 2016 at 1:32pm, train #186 from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Station to arrive in Philadelphia (20th St) at 2:58 pm. This was our first time on "short distance" train. No one offered us help in any way! Trying to get onto the train we see a conductor approximately three train car lengths down trying to get info on where to get on and he's standing there yelling at us to get on the train screaming "we're already three minutes late", and keeps on yelling at us. Not a very professional way to treat a customer. Ok we swallowed that embarrassment. Getting to Philadelphia, we had trouble getting off because people were getting on! Then, on the way home on December 1, 2016, train 141, arriving Philadelphia (30th St) to BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, at 11:13am to arrive at 12:33pm, getting on the train, without any help, had to walk seven car lengths, while the train is moving, to find a seat for two. Everybody had two seats, and a conductor says, there are seats at the front of the train. With no help from him or anyone else, two disabled people had to walk seven train car lengths, as the train is moving to find a seat! Is this how customers are treated!
Please fix your careers website...It says this job cannot be displayed...
Good Day. I am emailing to inform whomever this may concern.
There appears to be a technical problem with the career section of the website. Whenever I click on a job posting to apply a message appears stating "This job cannot be viewed at this time. It has either been deleted or is no longer available for application." This appears for every posting regardless of the date or city. As a result I am contacting you to forward this information to the appropriate person, please.
I have tried calling the 1-800 number, calling (hidden), emailing CONTACT US and web chatting with an automated representative "Ask Julie". I already have a personal profile and have applied in the past with no problem.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
I am also having this problem with the career section of the website, and have been all day today. I have found the same error message with finding the jobs regardless of which option I select. I have my profile completely filled out and have filled out the assessment in the past and have never before had any trouble with the careers section of the site. I certainly am hoping this information is fowarded to an appropriate person that can correct this glitch, as I am very interested in applying for an On-Board Services position.
Amtrak....do you read these messages? Maybe you should!!!! Amazing that NO ONE answers the corporate phone number! My son worked on his Eagle Scout badge since 1st grade and was finally awarded his Eagle badge in his Jr year of high school. With his Scout gift money, he purchased a pair of sunglasses that he had wanted for so long. On his train ride back to college, the cabin attendent stepped on the glasses and broke them. Son was told that he would get a check for the replacement of the broken glasses. Stephen did everything he was told to do BUT Amtrak lost his first case number, finally got a second number. All of this took over 5 weeks. He sent in required forms that were lost by Amtrak, Amtrak reissued forms, forms were filled out and sent back in, wait, wait, call customer service several times. Here it is December (train ride from MA to FL was mid-August) and our son just received a letter that states that time has elapsed, past 30 days since incident, and they will send him a $100 check, which wasn't included in letter and is not what the glasses cost, but first fill out the enclosed form and return and "check will be mailed out". Amtrak deliberately killed time in the beginning to get past the 30 day time frame. Every phone call was documented, names, etc. Amtrak does not do anything to instill customer loyalty. Pretty sad.
I was assaulted by the Amtrak conductor. I filed a police report. I wrote Amtrak describing the assault. I called Amtrak customer relations to complain about the assault. They didn't care about passenger safety. Ride Amtrak at your own risk.
I couldn't agree more. Amtrak could care less about commuter safety. I just slipped and fell, heels up, coming off their stairs at NY Penn Station. They have a slick rubber mat glued down at the bottom of the stairs, with all the oil on the street and stairs as well as the ra8n accumulation I'm not surprised more people, who ride their friggen trains haven't fallen. My back is in agony and I'm going to my doctor at his earliest available time to have it looked at. Who the "F" do they think they are not preparing for this type of weather to ensure commuter safety. Mike Conlon. I dare you to return my calls so I can tell you the way your operation sucks and can be easily improved.
I am on the train from DC to Columbia SC. We are already two hours behind schedule. These trains (the 91 and 92) are habitually late. They make up the same excuse every time about changing a motor. If that maintenance happens every day then change the schedule. Wick Moorman took over as CEO in September. I wonder if he would have put up with this nonsense when he ran Norfolk Southern? That hick should sell his remaining shares in NS and focus exclusively on trying to get Amtrak to run even remotely on time, or alternatively, just change the schedules and stop forcing your employees to lie to us every trip.

why is it okay for your Miami super, Scott Kenner, road foremen Doug Reisner and Mac Cothren to talk and discriminate against black employees and gay/ lesbian. I have heard them use derogatory comments more than one occasion and I find it offensive! this is your management , I have heard them use the N word about employees and make fun of the gay / lesbians. I cannot teach my kids to stand up for whats right unless I do the same. if you can just look into the situation, you will find that these 3 are unfair and do not treat the black , gay or lesbian employees fairly. I recall a gay employee needing time off for their wedding and they laughed and tried to do anything in their power to not allow it to happen. I beg you to look into this situation. if we do not make a stand then we only have ourselves to blame!
It is so dis-heartening that in this day and time, that you can not reach someone directly to speak about a position that you applied for and keep applying for because you know that you are good at it. What do you have to do to be considered for a position with this company? I have an Associates Degree in Business with a concentration in Management, an Associates in Paralegal , A Bachelores in Business with a concentration in management, and now I am studying for my Masters degree in Organizational Leadership. I have worked as a business analyst and Supervisor for over 15 years.The public says improve your skills, enhance your abilities, 'GET A JOB"! But when you do, you can't even discuss your abilities and capabilities with a live person. Send your resume and apply for what? I don't even think they look at half of them.
They get sorted by computer first. Also some people it takes years to get hired. They also don't like to much experience with some positions they want to be able to train you with out you telling them a easier way or more efficient they want it their way. The hiring process could take from 3-6months depending on how in a hurry they are.
it depends on who you know . they do not care about qualifications, i know for a fact the super in miami hired his daughters boy friend and he was a barber. hired him over way more qualified applicants!
This organization is not like it used to be. My apologies, but consider it a blessing. If you are really looking to make a difference, this may not be where your path should lead you.
Mostly people get a job at Amtrak by knowing someone at Amtrak.
