What would you say the odds are when you get an interview? fifty fifty? I know it depends on the person. I am wondering how many people they call to the interview for each position opened? There are seven that he is getting interviewed for.It depends on the railroad and the craft how many they interview for each position. I got hired by NS back in September and at my hiring session there were 24 applicants they selected for the session out of over 300 that applied. Out of the 24 only 13 showed up on time and we went forward in the process. In the end they selected me for the position, but they kept 2 backups incase something fell thru with me like false application, failed drug test, or physical.
