    Transportation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Genesee & Wyoming (New York, NY) in October 2015.


    Applied online, got called 3 days later for phone interview and the process took 7 days. 3 days later received phone call to have face to face interview. Transportation was not provided and was not reimbursed. Was told to wait 2 weeks to a month for decision. You will be contacted if you got the position or not. So far I have not heard anything.. Hopefully no news is good news
