    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Progress Rail Services in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    1st interview was about an hour long. I was interviewed by two people for about 30 minutes. I was asked to come back the following week. They told me that they had chosen me and one other candidate to interview once more. I was interviewed again and asked about my Peoplesoft skills. I was then taken to one of the manager's office and talked with him for a bit. Then, I was brought into a large room where several ladies worked (and would be my coworkers). Met with them for a bit and they showed me a few things that they did. I left and several days later they told me that they had decided on another candidate because I had a teaching background and they were afraid I would leave because I had went to school to become a teacher. About a month later, they called me back again to see if I might be interested in another interview. I declined.

    Management Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Progress Rail Services in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    HR person was pleasant and professional at all times, 2 of the 3 members of the panel were over 45 minutes late to the interview and all they ever said when they got there is "Are you a team player?" Drug test, physical and background check were routine and as standard as they are for any typical job. Position and current status of the role was misrepresented and oversold.

    Perpective candidates: ask A LOT of questions. Ask for a JOB DESCRIPTION, ask for expectations of the role...and make sure EVERYONE answers you.
