    >>Can’t find it on the website, where do you go?

    Click “Find a Job” (orange button below big picture) and chose “job number search” from the shaded items across the top of the page.

    The way their website is designed, I can’t provide a direct link to it.

    Finally, some good news on decent paying jobs for the north end. Maybe they’ll go to some locals, and not the”Escambia County ends at 9 mile road crowd”.

    Wonder how many females will be hired? If I didn’t already have a job! Or maybe I should go for it.

    most probably won’t go and apply…it’s easier to sit and home and draw a check…even if that means living under poverty level. GOOD LUCK TO THOSE THAT DO GO AND APPLY, I applaud your efforts to support yourselves and your families!

    Ok Century and surrounding area you need to take advantage of this job opportunity. All men and women stop making excuses of you can’t find a job go out and APPLY. All men need to apply so the government or you mother will not be responsible for taking care of your kids. Mother’s and Father’s stop making the child irresponsible, this is only hendering your child. Everyone wants to preach the word but is not practicing what they preach. In the word God “speaks of a man that does not work”. Some preach however they don’t listen thats when it time to make them RESPONSIBLE ADULT because in the end they will probably be in jail or on drugs then you will regret or still sending money on there book. Remember we all need to be push sometimes out the house and they will learn how the defend for themself and if they don’t take care of their kids then jail will break or make them! Just saying!!!!!

    Good luck to all applicants.

    Great news for the North end!
    You cannot beat the hours, 4 days on and 4 days off. I have worked 12 hour shifts for years, and it is the way to go versus a bunch of 8 hour days.
    Sounds like a fairly cushy job, just some time spent in the field hooking up the rail cars, checking for leaks, then the rest of the time will be spent monitoring flow rates via a control room.
    The advertised Pay, $16 to $20 an hour is not bad either. Considering the benefits also. Good luck for all that apply!
