    Assistant Signalman Construction Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florence, SC

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CSX (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. Had an on-campus interview which was largely personality based. Prior to first round interview, they took us out to dinner in Jacksonville to meet other employees. Very friendly group. Large portion of the interview was based on a case study/analysis that had to be presented to higher ups. Very time consuming to prepare for this.
