Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Attendant in Amtrak

Fun workplace

It was a great company to work for pay and tips were well. Just didn’t like being laid off when slow season. Overall great company to work for and if you like to travel and rarely be home this is for you.

Excellent Benefits Long Hours

The pay and benefits are good but very hard to move up from onboard or other crafts. Expect to see coworkers break major rules & get disciplined then suddenly become a manager. Recent changes are the company adopting “woke” policies and a vaccine mandate. Working for the railroad becomes all encompassing and if you decide it’s for you be prepared to work holidays etc with no sick days because there are none. Make sure you have a personal life that is separate from the railroad or your family will suffer. It’s a great experience meeting so many diverse people that ride and work the trains. Just don’t expect accolades for your diligence and don’t be easily offended and you will be just fine. The railroad is not for the faint of heart.


You can ride the train for free; good health benefits


No sick days, extra board work makes home life difficult, unfair promotions of inept people
