Norfolk Southern to hire thousands of workers

ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) -

One of the nation's premier leaders in transportation is looking to hire thousands of employees in 2012.

Norfolk Southern is holding an information and recruiting session on Friday, Dec. 16 at the Airport Holiday Inn starting at 8 a.m. Applicants must arrive before 8 a.m.

The railroad is looking to fill train conductor positions to meet the growing demand for freight rail service and to replace employees retiring in the near future.

As a conductor trainee you will operate track switches, couple cars and work on freight trains in rail yards or travel with the trains. Most of the jobs involve working outdoors, nights, weekends and holiday shifts.

There is also a possibility of significant travel that could include spending one or more nights a week away from home. 

You must be 18 years old and have a minimum of a high school education.

Norfolk Southern has hired 3,500 employees this year and expects to hire 2,600 more next year.
