    Interview

    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.

The test are computer based and require focus and quiet. Once you submit your application, you may have a phone interview or go to a hiring session.

The final interview is usually a panel interview with human resources, the hiring manager and someone else that works close with that position. The interview type is known as behavioral interviewing.

Learn as much as you can about CSX by reviewing our websites, reviewing articles about the railroad and researching the position you are applying for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CSX (Jacksonville, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CSX (Franklin, TN).

    Interview

    I submitted an application online, it took approximately 3 1/2 weeks to hear back from them. They contacted me via email with the hiring session details. They then sent a second email identical to the first and then changed the online submission status to "2nd attempt to schedule". This concerned me as there was no way for me to confirm that I was going to attend. I contacted customer service and they assured me that this was just part of their process. It was. The session took nearly the entire day. The "Brief" that was given about the company lasted a total of 2 hours. The individual giving the "speech" repeated the same things over and over again.
