 Job Description 
SEPTA is recruiting for the position of Conductor/Engineer Trainee, in its Regional Rail Division. We are recruiting to fill current openings, as well as future vacancies.

Conductor trainees will be responsible for collecting, reconciling, and depositing cash and tickets from riders on our Regional Rail trains.

Successful candidates will work a six day week, with one day off during the week. In addition, Conductor Trainees work irregular hours and split shifts, including nights, weekends, and holidays. Once hired, Conductor Trainees will wear a SEPTA uniform, and meet personal grooming standards. This position requires walking, climbing stairs, and sometimes working outdoors.

Must have reliable transportation (your car, or someone else's) to travel to reporting locations, such as West Trenton, Trenton, Doylestown, Thorndale, and Chestnut Hill, to name a few. You will not be able to ride SEPTA trains or busses to your reporting locations, because often you will need to arrive in the early morning, before any mass transit is running.

This position requires a high school diploma, driver's license, and paid professional experience working directly with the public. Experience handling cash is preferable. Familiarity with SEPTA Regional Rail train lines, stops, destinations, and fare structure is also preferred.

We offer a starting rate of $16.36/hour, which increases to $17.24/hour after 12 months. We offer a competitive benefits package, an employee transportation pass, good on all SEPTA vehicles, and paid vacation and holidays. This position is on a career path to RRD Conductor and Locomotive Engineer. Within two years of hire, all Conductor trainees will be required to enter a program to become full time Conductors or Locomotive Engineers.
