    Anonymous Employee in Boca Raton, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RailAmerica (Boca Raton, FL).

    Interview

    The onsite interview was very long and involved including case presentation and several panel interviews. While complex that interview was not overly difficult.
