NJ Transit to suspend entire Atlantic City Line for months

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

I'll help Transit out. Me and some friends just applied for engine service. Five men from the steam side. Besides it pays 76k after training a year. Not a bad gig.

The Bad News is you have to live in Expensive,Tax Crazy Jersey!

 

But Good Luck with the Gig!

I need something to do

Are you serious it pays that well! That's better than professional salaries in Chicago - how much does it increase over a hypothetical career and what benny's, like pension, health care, etc?

That's what their website claims. Now how true it is I can't tell you. It qualifies for Railroad Retirement (which is what I really want), and they claim a good benefits package.

They also get sick time.

 

✔ Starting salary of $76,000 (post training) with opportunities for overtime

✔ Railroad retirement, an Employer Contribution 401a Plan plus 457 tax-deferred benefit pension plan

✔ Exceptional medical, dental, vision and prescription coverage

✔ Paid time off

✔ Life insurance

✔ Paid training

Local newspaper today reported that Gov. Murphy wants the legislature to fast-track a bill to waive the residency requirement for engineers. State Senate president Sweeney agrees with the idea, but says that the legislature already has such a bill in the works.

 

So they are essentially arguing over who came up with the same idea first. Good grief. :huh:

 

However, it does look like a start, even if it's just for the engineers and not everyone else.
