Experienced First Line Supervisor Interview

Experienced First Line Supervisor
Fort Worth, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BNSF Railway in May 2013.

Interview Details – Initial communication was via a phone interview. Thirty minutes to an hour giving an overview of the position and BNSF itself, as well as some pretty generic questions regarding my prior experiences and why I was interested in BNSF. If you're successful in the initial interview, you're invited to a 2 day hiring event comprised of roughly 200 individuals vying for spots in the EFLS program. Attendees were there for all of the major sections (Transportation, Engineering, and Mechanical). On the first day, you're given an in depth overview of the company as well as the specific section you were interviewing for. Afterwards, there's a written test followed by dinner with the other attendees and current BNSF employees/management. If you pass the test, you were scheduled for an interview on day 2. The day 2 interview consistent of the applicant and a panel of BNSF employees. Most of the interview questions were tailored to give you a chance to demonstrate how your past experiences (professional, military, educational, etc.). applied to the situation they described. A couple weeks after the interview, you find out if an offer was going to be extended or not.

Interview Question – Please tell us about a time when one of your direct reports experienced a great level of success and how you contributed to that?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation regarding compensation. However, there may have been room to negotiate the location.
