I have a question for anyone working for BNSF?

I have been trying to get a job as a Conductor Trainee on BNSF for over two years. Is there something I'm doing wrong? The only time they accepted me for an interview was through Illinois and I didn't have the money to fly out there so I had to skip it. Ever since then I haven't had them even accept me for an interview anywhere? My father has worked on the railroad in K.C. for over 30 years, but I can't seem to even get them to check into me? This post is basically for anyone working with BNSF that could maybe give me some tips on getting a job for BNSF. You have to apply online and it is kinda impersonal, is there any phone number I could call so maybe they could check over my resume and tell me if maybe I'm doing something wrong? I have a buddy that applied and first time out was accepted, wtf? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not showing up for the first interview was probably a red flag they tagged to your name... hurts your chances significantly.

It's not a standard interview like you think. They have about 80 people in a room kinda like an orientation. They couldn't expect everyone to show at these interviews. I'm working and I get an email saying you have been accepted for an interview and you need to show up at such and such hotel in Illinois in 7 days I live in AZ. That's 7 days to plan plane tickets, get time off from work, and book hotel reservations? I didn't have the money and you can't get time off from my job unless you put it in two weeks in advance. I hope you're not right about the red flag, if that is true I'm screwed. I guess all I can do is keep applying.

That's the line I ride back and forth to Chicago on. I see BNSF conductors five days a week. Don't know anything about getting a job there, but I certainly understand there would be a demand in Chicago - most of them certainly work for Metra.

I should of borrowed some money to go out there when I had the chance. I hope I didn't blow my chance at getting a job .
You would think after 2 years they would give me another chance?

I don't know. Did you tell them you couldn't make it or just blow them off?

my dad used to work as building manager at the old frisco building (home of BNSF for years) when I was younger... not related to your query, but I'm wasting time
