I'd say by writing to some of them and asking them this question you'd put yourself on the right track. However, you may want to make sure they don't tie you down, or you might find yourself building up steam and having to rail against them.

It depends more on the type of job than the hiring company. If you could provide more information about the kind of role you want, I'm sure someone here could help. Under most circumstances, H1-bs are issued for technical roles, it's unlikely the USCIS would grant an H1-b for an admin or low-skill position.

If you were looking for an H1-b visa, you would need a degree or, in the absence of that, 12 years of related work experience (3 years for each missing degree year).

Post a bit more info, and I'm sure someone will be able to give you a better idea of where you stand.

It's not up to you, it's up to the company that wants to hire you to prove to USCIS that you are the right person for the job. If they are asking you to do this, then I would beware of them: they don't know what they are doing. Have you asked them to speak with an immigration attorney? That might be a wise move.

Agreed. They should have corporate attorneys or, if they have sponsored people before, an immigration lawyer under contract that they could consult with. On the surface, though, I can't think of a visa category under which a train conductor would sit.

That's positive news. EB-3 is a category of work-based Green Card and that category is in retrogression at the moment (they are currently processing applications from 2001, I believe) so the H-3 looks like it's your best bet. I don't know anything about that category or what the requirements are, so I think it would be prudent for you to consult an immigration attorney at this juncture.

The H-3 visa is a non-immigrant visa allowing aliens to attend a traineeship in the U.S
