My interview is in a week.

How did your interview go, did they give any guidance on the next steps? Jim told me that interview and application results are good for a year and if I were to move forward in the June class to expect something back in a month.

He told me the same thing.
There are two classes scheduled for this year, one in June and one around October.
I don't know how many people would be in a class, presumably 4.

If we're selected, the next step would be a medical exam and background check.
Everyone from the Basic Skills class will likely be interviewed before selections are made.

Negative, haven't heard from the railroad at all. Contemplating reaching out to them in the next day or so.

Same here. I think they’re just backed up with scheduling on the HR end.

I had my interview with several others from the basics course yesterday, tried to find out more of a timeline but wasn't able to get much out of them regarding the next steps. Guess we wait and see.

How's the studying going for you guys? Only 7 weeks left.

I have been looking back and forth at the books the last couple of weeks. Alot of stuff to memorize but I feel like S&D was harder, possibly because the stuff I am reading actually makes sense to me now. Haven't received a call yet though from railroad.

There were 7 trainees for the 2018 fiscal year which leads me to further speculate that there are only four per class.

Correction: There are 7 in this year's June class.
