I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CSX.

Interview Details – Applied online through campus recruiting. Interviewed over the phone, very basic questions. Mostly they told me about the position and the department. A lot of interest in the software I knew how to use (Tableau, SAP, and Access). They use Sharepoint a lot. After the phone interview, they called me back less than a week later to extend the offer. I didn't officially start for another 2 months after that.

Interview Question – Out of all the other applicants, why should we give this position to you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I just asked what the pay rate was and how flexible the hours could be. It was very casual and they were completely willing to work around my school schedule. I didn't negotiate the rate, I thought it more than fair.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CSX in February 2008.

Interview Details – A VP of the organization interviewed me over the phone. It was a stardard issue interview. Harping on your academic experience and technical skills goes a long way in succeeding to get a position with this company. The technical know-how of the employees in the corporate side is below average compared to other organizations.

Excel, Powerpoint, and Access skills are very valuable.

The corporate culture of the organization is VERY traditional. It does feel somewhat like a good-old-boy network.....
