    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to college career fair and got link to online assessment a few days later. 100 questions about how to handle workplace situations / interpret charts. Got an email to schedule a phone interview a week later. All behavioral questions about teamwork and leadership. The interviewer was very friendly and invited me to the second round in Fort Worth at the end of the phone interview. The process seemed really unorganized throughout, from scheduling the phone interview to scheduling my flights for the second round (travel site was down), but everyone I interacted with was friendly and patient with the delays. The second round took place at a nice hotel outside Ft. Worth. Presentations on first evening, Watson-Glaser test (look it up), followed by dinner with managers from transportation and three areas of engineering. Everyone was friendly and excited to share about the positions, also very honest about some challenges of the work. Next morning was panel interview with manager and HR rep. Only five easy behavioral questions, hair sample drug test, then free to leave. Heard back one week later.

    Interview

    I had to answer a 100 questionaire test behavioral type questions; it was time consuming and easy.
    Then I received a phone interview on leadership and behavioral questions. Blew through that and asked some questions that the HR employee could not answer. Received an email later on and was flown down to Fort Worth/Dallas, Texas for the hiring event and interview. Very nice event in which I learned a lot from the company and could get to know other students (200 students looking for a job with BNSF) as well as employees.
    The interview was in a room with a panel (2-3 recruiters) who asked questions that were simple about leadership roles/behavior and I actually expected more difficult questions and wish they had so I could better portray myself, but oh well.

    Took a little over a week to receive a response.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online then received a call to schedule a phone interview a few weeks later. The interview I had was behavioral and the interviewer was very cold and quick. I soon realized that they outsource this part of the process which can explain why the interviewer was so fast, emotionless, and why the interviewer did not know any specifics about the position or company. About 10 days later I found out that I was invited to the final interview. The final interview was a two day process at a hotel in Westlake, TX. We had a presentation on the company, took a psychological/behavioral assessment, then had dinner with everyone. The next day we had a single interview throughout the day and a drug test then was able to leave soon afterwards.

Also provided us time to talk to people who are currently in the position you are applying for. They help a lot with how the interview would go.
