    - Trusted to do your work
    - Excellent benefits


    - Bad pay
    - Managers somewhat disengaged
    - People take advantage of the benefits, i.e. sick pay, maternity pay and you end up having to cover three jobs at the same time

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Network Rail in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The online application process involves of a pre-screening test consisting of situational judgement questions where the applicant has to prioritise the answers in the way he thinks he would be more or less likely to react.

The next step is a video interview where you are asked questions like "why did you choose to apply for network rail", "what do you know about the rail industry" and others asking about previous experiences where you had to demonstrate your leadership, communication and team-working abilities.
