Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and tried searching but no luck. I know that CN pays for relocation but as far as the screening interview goes, how does that work? I currently live in Toronto and have an interview coming up for a position in Sioux Falls which is an $800 airplane ticket. I assume the screening interview will take place there as well instead of Toronto right? I can't afford to pay $800 for a chance to get a second interview.

More than likely you didn't make the interview. I am preparing to fly from Harrisburg, PA to Chicago, IL for a first round interview with Union Pacific. I am footing the ticket and overnite hotel room myself. It's a gamble, of course but you can't win if you don't play. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
