Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CSX in Mar 2022

Interview

Slow old-school process from a slow old-school company. Interviewed with HR, many many weeks & finally got interview with hiring manager.. many weeks again to find our they are still going through the process. They lost me at this point as what I worried about (slow old-school) was true. Companies can talk all they want about change and speed but I find companies like CSX don't really understand it. They end up hiring people who can function in highly bureaucratic slow old-school environments. Sort of irritating when you have a great deal of experience to offer and/or come from the hi-tech side (Intel, Apple) and these companies say they want to bring in new talent, but ultimately they are either too scared to change (or just want the same old type of people). Thought CSX might have truly evolved but not really.

Interview

Easy going. Laid back crew. Just be yourself and you'll get the job. Manpower is low to be very picky these days. Express that you're a safe individual and you will be good.
