Engineering supervisors in the Communications and Signals department play a key role within our railroad operations team. Similar to how cars interact with traffic lights, trains operate using signals along the railway that convey movement information. Supervisors are responsible for overseeing the construction and maintenance of these signals and their related equipment. To accomplish this, a supervisor manages a team of employees across their territory that can span over 100 miles and include one or more rail yards.

Additionally, supervisors ensure other electrical railroad equipment such as railroad crossing gates, train defect detectors, equipment identification systems, and other railroad equipment is installed, inspected, and maintained. A supervisor will be responsible for a team ranging from roughly 8-15 technicians to carry out this work in a 24/7 environment.

The trainee program 32-weeks in length providing leadership training and technical growth opportunities to prepare trainees to assume the duties of a C&S officer upon completion of the program. Additionally, through on-the-job training, trainees will learn to speak the language of the railroad, including full knowledge of railroad signaling, and how to install, operate, and perform required inspections on our unique systems. Trainees will be expected to travel during the program, have availability outside of normal business hours, and have flexibility with their schedule to support our 24/7 operation.
