    I worked at Norfolk Southern full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Environment is comfortable and mostly very laid back. Start times are flexible and dress code isn't to strict. building is in a good location.

    Cons

    Good people aren't recognized enough, poor performance isn't reprimanded enough. So there end up being some airheads around. Bonuses have been few and low.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Norfolk Southern.

    Interview

    The interview started with HR calling and then another phone interview afterwards. In between there were emails. It was very slow and unpleasant. However, the interview was pretty chill and behavioral based.
