    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FreightCar America (Roanoke, VA) in March 2015.

    Phone interview, then a one on one, drug test hair and urine sample, physical ability test at the Occupational Center. They also have you come to the plant prior to hiring to introduce you to the union.
