Job Description

After an initial three week orientation and training period, Apprentice Signal trainees' start out on signal construction gangs. They travel system-wide, depending upon the assignments and current corporate needs, installing the NS signal system.

Construction gang employees typically travel on Sundays to the work site to start the workweek early Monday mornings. The workweek may be comprised of four 10-hour days, although they can extend longer. The work of a signal construction gang is physical, demanding work.

It requires work in all types of weather, in all elements. On site, most of the work involves construction-type work including hand digging with shovel and pick. Signal systems are installed in the same areas as underground fiber optic cables; extreme care needs to be taken during construction.

Employee is responsible for providing own transportation from their home to the lodging at the work location. NS pays the cost of hotel rooms and also provides a per diem stipend and meal allowance as governed by the union agreement.

Requirements include the ability to obtain a Class-A Commercial Drivers License within 90 days of employment. Electrical experience and/or educational training in electronics are also preferred.

It is advised that the successful applicant, when called to begin the process, should go ahead and begin the process of obtaining the learner's permit for the CDL so that when they exit the Signal school, they will be able to drive with a licensed driver immediately. We will assist you in obtaining the CDL by providing the vehicle and giving you the opportunity to drive. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GET THE CDL.

We maintain a drug-free workplace and perform pre-employment substance abuse testing. We test hair for illegal drugs as part of our pre-employment medical evaluation.

Hair testing can reveal any drug use in the last 90 days. If you are unable to provide a hair sample from the head, arms, chest, or legs we will treat that failure as a refusal which will result in rejection of the application for employment.
