Operations Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Union Pacific in September 2013.
Interview Details – Online application, followed by two interviews. First interview was at a hotel with a mix of current employees and new applicants. Two written tests and a personality assessment along with the first actual interview. Fairly standard interview questions,emphasis on safety and leadership, highlight these experiences if you have them. Whole process was about a half a day or so. Second interview was at the regional he, more intimate with a panel of six people or so, made up of the regional Vice President, HR director, and some other high up folks.
Interview Question – Nothing way outside the box, be prepared to answer situational questions about leadership and safety Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much room to negotiate, they have a cap, even if you are experienced, however, the money comes later.they send you an offer letter if they want you and you either accept or decline.
