With CN, you can get a secure, long-term, stable career with a growing company as well as outstanding benefits, a pension and an employee share plan. No experience? We offer paid training for several railroad specific jobs such as conductors and track maintainers.

 “What differentiates us from our competition isn’t the color of our locomotives nor our tracks, but rather our people,” says President and CEO Claude Mongeau. “It’s that unique sense of pride at CN, our 23,000 proud railroaders coming together to contribute to and share in our success story. It’s about staying connected, sharing that common vision to drive forward. This is what leads to innovation, what sets us apart from the competition. We can’t continue to be leaders by following the beaten path.”

At CN, we’ve built a community of railroaders and a culture that challenges every employee, in every role, to bring out their best.
