    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kansas City Southern (Kansas City, MO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Telephone interview. The interviewer was working from a list of questions. It became obvious in the process of the interview that the interviewer was looking for a very particular skill set and personality profile.If you answer ONE question in a way not on the prepared list, you will not go any further in the interview process.
