    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.

    You apply take a test , and then wait no matter what you applied for you get the same cliche reply "while your background is impressive we had decided to select candidates that fit more closely to the job description " . The process seems off because you closely match jobs and don't get them , but hey recommended for jobs that have nothing to do with your skills set .

    IT Leadership Development Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CSX (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Initially contacted via email for a phone interview. Phone interview was conducted by a project manager and a software engineer asking behavioral questions and small technical questions. After perhaps two days I was contacted via email that I was selected for an in person interview at the main campus and that I was to present a case study that they had selected for me. The visit to the campus lasted roughly 4-5 hours, starting with a visit to HR to go over the benefits package, then lunch. After lunch I presented my case study to a board of executives and the head of the leadership development program that lasted roughly 20-25 minutes. Immediately afterwards I went to my technical interview with a senior software engineer that asked a range of technical questions which lasted 45 minutes.

    Overall, the most difficult interview process I've had when comparing to my interviews for my previous internships. Even so, it was a great learning experience.
