    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Genesee & Wyoming (Phenix City, AL).

    Interview

    Was asked to drive from my residence 400+ miles, to Phenix City, AL for a 10 minute interview with the Operations Manager. I was told that the information about the railroad was confidential because it was a new acquisition and had not released the information about it yet. When I told him what I Was paid at my previous employer, his response was that it would be no problem to match that plus compensate me for my expenses to move my family to Georgia. He did not mention that I would have been better off to find a residence in Alabama instead.
