    I have been working at Norfolk Southern Railway

    Pros

    Pay and benifits and of course riding the rails. Old railroad mentality is leaving and a modern railroad is underway.

    Cons

    Family work balance. Pay during first six months of training is only 600 a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better work home life balance for train crews.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Norfolk Southern Railway.

    Interview Details

    Put in my app, waited for 2 weeks got a call for the assessment portion of the hiring process. Went in to the session they sit you down tell you how bad it can be on your family and how you will be gone a lot but the pay is good. Then they send you on a break and when everyone comes back in they issue the tests. after the test you break again and in my case they posted nine names out of the twenty that tested for follow up interviews. I was lucky enough to get an interview felt like it went well just be honest and down to earth, show them you are a worker. They said we will call in 3-5 business. they waited 5 days lol but i got an email that said congrats we wish to offer you conditional employment. then you complete a background check and a physical. which tacks another 2-3 weeks
