    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Long Island Rail Road (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online about a month before a call. I was then given a choice of one of two dates to go in for a test. Upon going in for the test, about 35 of us sat down in the room, where we received information about the potential jobs we were testing on. Afterwards, we recieved a two part (50 questions each part total 100 questions) test on electronics and radio frequencies, which were graded separately. 35 of us went in, about 10 of us got interviews an hour or so after that 2 hour test. After the interview we set up to go back to another facility for a practical. About one week later, i went in for my pratical. This was a few days ago. Waiting on their call currently
