What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Employees of CSX need to make safety a priority. Do you have a record for trafficking in controlled substances? If your criminal charges involve drugs or alcohol, the hiring manager might be concerned that you’ll be a safety risk on the job.
In addition, most positions require you to be a licensed driver. If you’ve got a history of driving infractions (including DUI), it might be difficult for CSX to insure you to drive company vehicles.
Teamwork is big for the company. They rely on employees getting along and pulling together to sort out problems. A criminal record for offenses involving harm to others, such as assault or harassment, is not what they want to see on your background check.
Does CSX drug test?
Yes. The job postings we looked at said you need to pass initial drug screening. What’s more, you might have random tests for drugs and alcohol on the job.
