    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CSX (Atlanta, GA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I had a first interview with their HR person that was 10 min asking basic questions.

    I had a 2nd interview set up with 2 managers over the phone that took almost a month to set up. Once I did this they asked me more technical questions but really just to see how comfortable I was with linux and helpdesk stuff. Somewhat easy but somewhat hard. After the interview I asked when I would find out about going to the next round and he said next week. I diddnt hear back after 3 weeks.

    I got a call from hr to set up the 3rd interview and had it over audio and video. It was a panel of 6 people with very dry social skills. Video would freeze sometimes during this interview with them which was weird because it has never happened to me before. Truthfully diddnt take it serious since I had emailed them before that I had gotten another offer and wanted to make them aware they need to be competitive. They never aknowledged it so I diddnt bother to bring it up again. They said they would let me know in a couple days on decision.

    3 weeks later I diddnt get the job lol

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CSX (Jacksonville, FL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    After shortlisting my profile, I was asked to visit the Headoffice for coding interview. There I was given 7 questions to code and I successfully executed 6 Programs while in the 7th question, only 6 out of 17 test cases passed. I scored 230/250 and was shortlisted for Managerial interview.

    Everything went well and I was very confident of getting an offer from CSX. But after 2 weeks, I was told that we don't provide sponsorship so we can't take you.

    I was really disappointed as I was not informed about this condition at the start.
