    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Network Rail (Exeter, England) in September 2020.

    Interview

    I read over my CV giving more details, then answered a series of questions about myself, the company, safety and the job as well as some technical questions. I would recommend taking a close look at the safety vision. apart from that it was a pretty standard interview.
