Hello! I was just hired on by CSX for Freight Conductor after applying and being not selected after almost 5 years of trying! Well let me get right to the point. I went to the hiring event in Selkirk NY and buy the way I was hired for the Syracuse NY yard. There were about 10 of us there some for Selkirk some for Syracuse. Well the presentation was about 2 hours long and at the end they gave us one on one interviews. It was really just 15 generic questions and then the recruiter hired me right there on the spot! Wow! I was just wondering if this is common because the recruiter told us that we wouldn't know till the end of the week and the interview was on a Tuesday. Any feedback would be appreciated! Very excited about a new career! Its been a long wait!

Well heres the update just received an Email from HR at CSX and I guess the number of conductors hired will be reduced by three so I wont go to REDI till February instead of November! Oh well I wasn't looking forward to being gone through most of December.
