Hey all,

I have a question about hiring on at CSX. I've searched numerous forums and haven't been able to come up with a sure answer. Today i received an email saying I have been selected for a hiring session next Thursday for a Signal Maintainer position out of Louisville. However, I have a DUI on my record from last year. I know it was a mistake, and I have definitely learned my lesson. I have no other marks on my record. I am a prior military service member and have a reference from a pretty high up CSX employee. Do I have a chance at getting this dream job? Any input is appreciated.
