    I applied online – interviewed at BNSF Railway.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through campus career website, and online through BNSF. After applying I was contacted by email to take a simple basic mathematics and behavioral test. Then one week later I was contacted by phone to schedule a phone interview the following week. The phone interview took 10-15 mins and asked basic behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BNSF Railway.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process is not like any other hiring process I have ever seen. The company does the interviews in large groups. 40-50 people show up for interviewing. Once there they are given a test. It is a basic congnitive skills assessment test. Upon completion of that then you go to the interview. While waiting for your turn to interview you submit a hair sample for drug screeening as well as a urine sample. After giving your samples you move on to the interview. There 3-4 people that as you pre written questions. You won't know your answer for 4 or more weeks.
