    Applied online which was the first step. About a week later was informed to come in for an interview which the process was more like an oral board with 3-4 people interviewing you at once. Overall good experience and very smooth process.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BNSF Railway.

    Interview

    I applied to the job early November 2017 and did not get a response until early February 2017. The first step was a virtual interview that consisted of 6 questions. I was sent a link to a 3rd party site which recorded my answers and sent them to BNSF for review. No one is on the other side while you are recording. They do give you a couple practice question before you start which are not sent to BNSF. After they reviewed my virtual interview, they invited to a 2 day hiring event coming up soon where they tell you about the company and then do interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BNSF Railway in November 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume, and I was offered an interview a few weeks later. It was an on-demand interview, where I answer questions to myself and send the recording. I was not familiar with that format, so I don't think I did too well. Haven't received a reply yet. Not too optimistic.
