    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in Flagstaff, AZ

    I worked at BNSF Railway as an intern for less than a year


    Great pay ($4,000/month); relocation assistance ($1700/summer); opportunities all over the country
    Everyone is very friendly and open to teach you what they do.
    Hands on opportunities: I was able to use all the tools and machines on gangs, weld, grind, cut rail, and so much more! :)
    Opportunities to travel even as an get to stay in nice hotels, get meals, etc on BNSF's account.


    Traveling is a must as you go into management.

    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.
