    After completing the online application, I received an email stating that I had been selected to move to the next part of the process. I scheduled a phone interview with a recruiter which lasted approximately 30 minutes. He asked very basic interview questions to gauge my level of interest in the company and the program, my willingness to relocate, and my academic and professional experience up until that point.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CSX in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went to an information session on campus and then applied through my school. was given a Finance test with some mid level financial questions and was then awarded an on campus interview that was very laid back and asked some basic questions about myself and some situational questions as well. I was then brought to their headquarters to present a case study they emailed me a week before this interview. The case study is rather challenging and very subjective.
