    Assistant Signalman Construction Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at CSX (Florence, SC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Most unprofessional experience I've had in a professional environment. I was told that punctuality is extremely important to CSX. I drove a combined 13 hours to get to the interview site and back and showed up an hour and a half early. My interviewers were out to lunch, which made sense given the time of day. Finally after waiting 2 hours they sauntered in 30 minutes late for the interview they scheduled. I was then asked a few canned HR questions read (poorly) from a sheet of paper and sent on my way in 15 minutes.

    Information Technology Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CSX (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was notified by CSX that I was selected to do an online interview. I installed the necessary software beforehand and practiced. I approached the interview process calm and confident. I was asked four to five questions pertaining to my performance and my skills. Once the interview was completed, I was told that I will be notified about my status via email.

    Around December of 2016, I heard back from CSX with an internship offer at Jacksonville for late May of 2017. I was offered a wage between $18 and $23 per hour (but they didn't offer housing arrangements or coverage). I accepted the offer and was then shortly notified that I will hear about my next steps in mid-March.

    Fast forward to mid-April and I haven't heard back from my hiring manager from AppleOne (a company that deals with the hiring process for the internship). I called her and asked her what was going on and why AppleOne didn't notify me in mid-March as specified. I then found out that due to corporate restructuring as a result of a new CEO, executives at CSX decided to scrap the CSX Summer Internship Program and terminate all of the internship offers within less than two months from the start of the internship. This was all under the guise of trimming unnecessary expenses.

    I was so disappointed that a large and reputable company like CSX did this to me and other potential interns.

    My advice, STAY AWAY from CSX.
