    I worked at CSX full-time (More than 10 years)


    Great benefits, great pay, covers approximately 38 states with a relocation package. Its a self-contained company that offers plenty of room for a variety of career moves. Education plan with tuition assistance. You are eligible for 401K benefits from day one. Great health care plan.


    Nepotism is terrible. If you are a transportation employee (I.e. conductor, engineer) the discipline is terrible. Promotion to management is given to a family member over the most qualified employee.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is that you should include the employees in the management plan and you could get more done. Most of the managers have never been on a train so all train movement is done in theory by them instead of hands-on experience.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CSX.


    Very casual. Dinner, and two behavioral interviews with a case study. Really want people who know a lot about the railroad industry. Dinner the night before is at a pretty nice restaurant with one senior and one more junior associate. Probably wont see these two people the next day. 2 one on one interviews and a case study presentation. They ask a few questions about basic DCF and your assumptions
