My names is Bo, and I have a few Questions about the railroad employment process! First off I applied online to BNSF railroad for a track maintenance laborer job and was wondering if this is a good job to get my foot in the door? Also they sent me an email, the very next day for a realistic job preview and interview session is this normal? To be sent an email that fast, should I be worried that they responded so fast or encouraged? Also what am I to expect at this interview process? Also would like to know more about the training? If anyone could help me with these questions, I would be grateful. Thanks, Bo!
