Union Pacific Railroad hoping to find some good workers at Sturgis Rally
Gary Matthews - August 9, 2017

STURGIS, S.D. - Union Pacific Railroad is at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, hoping to find some good workers.

The railroad says recruiters will be on site at the 2017 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to meet with attendees and discuss railroad careers – including diesel electrician jobs in North Platte, Nebraska, which offer a $3,000 hiring bonus. Additionally, the railroad is looking for train crew employees in North Platte; Cheyenne, Green River, and Rawlins, Wyoming; and various other locations.

Union Pacific Human Resources representatives are on hand to conduct on-the-spot interviews with candidates as well as be available to discuss railroad careers and opportunities with interested individuals.

With upcoming vacancies due to retirements, the railroad is hiring nearly 100 North Platte-based jobs as well as positions in various other locations, all offering competitive pay and benefits.

·        Diesel electrician jobs pay $30.13/hour and include responsibility for inspecting, repairing and maintaining electrical components on diesel locomotives.

·        Train crew jobs pay $40,000 a year, with potential to earn $75,000 as they advance to conductors and engineers. These positions are responsible for providing the safe, on-time and on-plan movement of freight trains.

Train crew and diesel electrician job descriptions and applications are available at www.UP.jobs.

Union Pacific’s railroad network spans 23 states and delivers the goods that Americans use daily. The company’s operation in North Platte, Nebraska, is the home of the world’s largest rail classification yard, called Bailey Yard.

The U.P. booth is located at 1041 Main Street during the week of the Rally.
