Frequently asked questions:

What does a RR Tech do? 

Railroad Techs go out 5 days at a time to service oil and grease lubricators all along Class I rail lines in 14 states. Our crews are responsible for everything related to the units, from keeping them topped off with oil or grease to keeping every component...pumps, sensors, solar panels, and good working order.

Some techs are on service/maintenance crews keeping the units up, others chase down alerts and alarms from units that need immediate attention. Our crews also remove and replace components when maintenance of way gangs come through for track service.  

All Meridian employees work in all weather conditions and need to be able to move freely, including bending, twisting, climbing, and lifting up to 50 lbs regularly. We don't look for someone who has experience doing this job...we plan to train you. Being mechanically inclined is a plus, and you'll need to be comfortable with technology. The biggest requirements are you need get along well with others and enjoy hard work and long days.


It says "CDL required" but is it really? 

Yes. Our heavy duty pick up trucks require at least a class B and have air brakes. Our heavier equipment requires a class A, so that makes you an even stronger candidate. At this time, we are NOT considering applicants who only have a permit.


How much travel is there?

Plan to be gone a5 days at a time. When you're out for 5 days in a row, it's usually Monday-Friday, followed by 2 days off. We cover your hotel stays and pay a $25 per diem.


What does it pay? 

This is an hourly job with some overtime. Techs starting out with a class A usually make $1300 per wk.


Any chance of moving up in the company?

For sure! Meridian Oil & Equipment is growing exponentially – we've more than doubled our staff in the last year and more than quadrupled our revenue. When we need a new crew leader, we choose from the railroad techs who already work for us. When we need a supervisor over multiple crews, we choose from our crew leaders. We're looking to hire Railroad Technicians who are hungry to work hard and have leadership potential.


What does Amarillo-based mean?

You must be able to easily commute to our warehouse near Amarillo airport. Usually people with less than an hour commute are the happiest in this job. Relocation benefits are not available for this job.
