I've being working at my job for 4 years at a tire plant in SC. I have several years a military experience and I'm 33. Is this too old to try and join the railroad. I have read that RR retirement takes 30 years which would put me at 63. Would my age be a disqualifying factor?
Once upon a time major railroads had age limits, 35 for no experience-45 with experience, but no more. I know a couple guys who were hired in their upper 50s/lower 60s. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
