Now hiring for the 2023 Holiday Season!

A Great Part-Time Job! You MUST like people, the Magic of Christmas, and trains! Be a part of the team that will take over 10,000 people to the North Pole on the Nickel Plate Express’s Reindeer Express!

Do you love the magic of Christmas? Earn some extra money while having fun! NPX will hire approximately 20 part-time staff (ages 15 and up) to work on the Reindeer Express. Most positions pay $10/hour, with the possibility of making more! Seasonal work begins November 11th and ends December 23rd.

Positions Include: 

Set up crew: This crew will help load in the train with supplies prior to the train departure. You will be scheduled 2-3 hours per day before the other crew arrives. This is a great position for those that want to work but are not comfortable working with the public.
