    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amtrak (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Between 10 to 15 behavioral questions. It was a little intimidating with the panel of three and I felt a vibe from the lead that was not inviting. The person who I was actually supposed to meet was off and I had to ask for help several times to get to the proper location because of the multiple security doors.
