I don't even know why they sent it, I got a thanks-but-no-thanks letter for that position months ago. The only AC position I have an open app for is L.A. so I assumed it was for that. It appears that one is still in play. Carry on. Sorry about the confusion.



Ok good to hear! Definitely will keep a look out and let you guys know if I make it are not... Amtrak is so tough to break into.. grateful to make it this far in the process.

Which test? The CFA? I would honestly take it ASAP if it's in your email. I honestly don't remember what questions their are. But answer them honestly. Someone telling you what to answer is a violation of taking the CFA and if you were hired and they find out you'd be subject to immediate termination. Even if it's a union job and you've passed your probation period.

Agree with Acela. There are different CFAs for different positions. The CFA for AC trainees is much easier than the one for engineer trainees. The BNSF CFA is much more difficult than either of these though. There will be questions about analytical ability, logic, personality, and maybe math. Not difficult but designed to make you think and to reveal your ability to think. Amtrak questions are timed so there is no point dwelling on the question or trying to consult a cheat sheet. Most only give you 2 minutes to answer the question so read carefully and answer. Seriously, if you can't pass the CFA on your own, this isn't the job for you.

I believe your scores are valid for one year if you passed...
