    Freight Conductor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gary, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CN (Gary, IN) in July 2019.

    Interview

    When you arrive at the interview you’ll be put in a room with everyone else you got the interview. They go over pay and benefits and expectations. Than they will start to interview you one by one, and they interview by whoever came first to whoever came last. I was the last one so I waited about 6 hours to get my turn. Interview was easy, just be honest and make sure to mention how safe you are. Oh, and they no longer do the switch test in person on paper they do it online so if you got the interview you already passed the switch test. I’d say be prepared and try to come early so you don’t wait all day.
