    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at BNSF Railway (United States)


    Pre interview there was a pretty basic test. The interview itself was an hour long over Teams and included four interviewers. They mostly asked general questions about the field and didn't through any hard curveball questions.

    PTZ cameras, Microwave radio, network connectivity, and other general radio and communications questions. Safety was a big part of the interview as well as troubleshooting history.
