hey now. i got scolded for criticism a few days ago. no attacks. ;)

but no seriously.. poster dude.. you have to be way more specific.. for what job.. when.. where.. hiring sessions do not operate on a public schedule.. maybe soon.. maybe never.. we could know.. we might not.. the idea is you apply.. and you wait... and search these forums for information relating to the job you applied to that others might have.

good luck.

Sorry to be so vague I'm new to all this. I live in east tn and have applied for several positions both locally and out of state. Mainly apprentice signal man. I've been trying for a year now and haven't had any luck yet. I was wondering how the hiring process works. Didn't know if they have one big session for the area or if ns has sessions according to the position applied for. Any info would be appreciated.

I've been to ones for NS that were for up to 3 jobs at one time for one given location. If its been a year and you haven't been to a hiring session yet? I'd say go over your resume and make it fit the jobs which you are applying better if possible. Its also hard to say with NS when the next hiring session will be as they just tend to leave old job postings up for a while, you can reapply to these jobs to make sure there still the ones you applied for a few months ago or if there new.

Thanks for the info guys. Just one more thing , if I apply for signal man in tn and also in another state like ind and get called for the one in ind,will I have to show up in ind before every job? The description says over 10 days a month travel and its system wide so I didn't know if I would have to move or not.

Hello all,

Hey josh,Ns must do hiring sessions way different than csx. I went to one for csx in Cincinnati a couple months back and they only invited 10 people total. Only 7 showed. If you got an invite for ns,consider yourself lucky,Ive applied 71 times over the last 17 months and still nothing. Everything I read here says sit back and wait. It could be weeks or months before you hear back. What pos. Did you apply for?
