Operation Management Training(Signals) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview


The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Norfolk Southern in February 2011.


1 session in Norfolk,Va
Flight in the night before
Info session then a interview with a HR newbie

1 session in Atlanta, Ga
Flight in on Thursday
Info session Thursday night with a meet and greet
Friday interviews; 2 separate interviews with 2 people in the room

Both sessions were pretty much the same material with Atlanta adding contact with operational leadership.
This is were the problem was for me
Managers are uneducated, condescending and extremely unprofessional
Although they have engineering titles they have very little understanding of true engineering practices. I left the meet and greet feeling NS only has 1 decent person in the signal department.
The HR personnel were even worse, very large egos with nothing to back it up. I left the interview process knowing I would never work for NS.The personnel were so bad I considered walking out during the interview.
