Call backs on time at DPW and STB?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 17, 2010 6:58 pm

I have two call backs next week on the same day at DPW and STB in New York. I have a really tight schedule and am hoping they stay on time. Does anybody have any experience doing a call back here?

did CB at both. DPW makes you wait a bit longer but if you let recruiting know they'll shuffle you in and keep you on track at both. They are literally one block from each other so you shouldn't have trouble in terms of getting from one place to another.

Just have a quick lunch if anything.

DPW is across Lexington Ave from STB. No prob getting there on time. My DPW interview ended at 2:00pm.

I would definitely let them know about your time constraints. They have a tendency to run over otherwise -- they're pretty personable, so its easy to go beyond the 30 minute mark. I think they'll keep you on track if they ask.

How long did your DPW interviews run? I have a 3:15 PM interview, if that helps.

As others have said, firms will keep trains running on time IF they know they need to. Otherwise it's usually pretty fast and loose. Just make sure you don't assume somebody knows or remembers your constraints if things start running long, like if you have a morning lunch or something.
