Hiring Process

Your First Stop

Progress Rail’s candidate selection process is designed to match your skills and talents with the requirements of the job for which you are applying. During the selection process you will have the opportunity to learn more about Progress Rail and to tell us about your unique background. Our selection process consists of four phases:

1. Completion of an application
Fill out the online application for the job that matches your skills, experience, and interest. Resumes may be attached to your application if you choose. However, resumes mailed, e-mailed or hand-delivered to Progress Rail, or any employee will not be considered. Once you submit your online application, our Talent Acquisition Team will review it. We will contact you by phone or email if you’re selected to participate in the next steps of the employment process.

2. Interview
Some qualified applicants may be selected for a telephone or in-person interview. This step of the process includes comprehensive interviews that assess your experience and qualifications, and we will answer any questions you have regarding employment at Progress Rail. Depending on the job, you may also be asked to demonstrate your ability to perform certain critical, core responsibilities of the job.

3. Background check
As part of our process, you may be invited to undergo our background check. In addition, your work references may be contacted to verify information regarding past employment.

4. Job offer
After a successful background check, you may be extended a job offer. Our post-offer hiring process includes a review of your medical history by our health services team, a drug screen and, for certain job categories, a physical medical exam.

We hope you’ll be interested in applying for a career with Progress Rail and we look forward to hearing from you.
