    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Took a while for a recruiter to get back to me. Had a phone interview with scenario based questions and then the in person with more of the same. I also took a skills examination that was not hard and only took about an hour. They will conduct a full background and drug test at the time of the in person interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online, was asked to do an online questionnaire, was then immediately contacted to do a phone interview. Waited 3 weeks and then was contacted to attend a hiring event in Fort Worth, TX. Attended the event, the employees all seemed pretty nice. First day of event was general information, 2nd day was the interview. Personally, I don't think it was enough time to really get to know us and how we would work with the team/individually (especially considering the person we would be working for was unable to attend the event).

    Waited almost a month before the reject letter came (they said we would hear back in 2 weeks, which clearly was not the case). The entire process was slow (took almost 3 months from start to finish). It sounded like a great company to work for. Made a few new friendships from the hiring event though, so I guess that is a plus. It was still a great experience and I learned a lot.

    They really push not saying much about their interview process to others, so I want to respect that as much as possible. You may find more specific interview information from other reviews on here though.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They first schedule a phone interview and then, if that goes well, you are flown out to Fort Worth, Texas for a hiring event. They fly out way too many people and it seems that they already have a person in mind before you even interview. I interviewed along with 9 other people for one position so after 6 interviews or so, I'm sure they were tired and they didn't seem to listen intently.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (Fort Worth, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    interview appeared to be very formal, but was in fact very informal once questioning began. all behavioral. it was a two day event that began with standardized testing then finished with profiles of each arm of the trainee positions. it was fun, and laid back. dinner was a great time to network with current employees.
