    Special Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CSX (Atlanta, GA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    First interview will be over the phone by a company recruiter. He or she will ask about your previous law enforcement experiences. They will ask what you liked and disliked about your last job also your reason for leaving. In my case I was retiring after 16yrs with a major city Police department. CSX will only consider you if have a Bachelors degree and was an investigator, supervisor, swat , or other specialized in your previous law enforcement career. Once you cleared the phone interview you will be evaluated and referred to the panel for final interview. If you pass the panel you will be given a conditional offer of employment pending a very strict medical exam and background check.

    Interview Questions

    • What have you done to change your previous occupation for the better and if asked what would your fellow employees say that your legacy was?   1 Answer
    • What didn't you like about your last job?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    CSX will always try to beat your previous salary they will make you a flat offer depending on what your last salary was. For example I will use my offer: my previous salary was 55,000 they offered me 60,000. Your expertise and education will also help to increase your starting salary.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CSX (Jacksonville, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Lots of form emails with little to no feedback until after the actual interview. Standard interview process once you make it through the initial weeding out process. Direct manager and Labor Relations rep attend the interview. LR rep is only there for factual company information, not very knowledgeable about the position.
