    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Network Rail.

    Interview

    Both competency questions and technical questions about rails and ways to improve the structure. The interviewers were quite professional and very kind. They had exercise sheets ready and discussed the situation with me to try and figure a potential solution to the asked question. I think they were mainly focused on the thinking process rather than the response given.
