    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    Test, phone interview, then 2 day hiring event in Fort Worth: first day they tell you about the company and what the job you're interviewing for is specifically and you take a personality test, then a dinner. Day two is a 2 person panel interview that is pretty relaxed. Be patient waiting after hiring event. They say you'll here either way in 2 weeks but it is much longer than that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through their website online. Then you take a online assessment that is about 100 questions and just asks basic mathematical and logic questions. Next you'll do a twenty to thirty minute phone interview. Finally, they'll ask you to come to a hiring event in Ft Worth TX. This was a decent experience, they sell the company to you and have you take a critical thinking assessment. Finally on the second day you have a formal behavioral interview. The whole process took just over a month.
