I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Union Pacific (Omaha, NE) in September 2011.
1:1 interview contained only general behavior questions like ‘what are your strengths and weakness’ 'why UP' 'Why application developer?' 'How to deal with conflict?'
On-site interview was a good experience. They provide very nice hotel before the night. Most of the interviewers are friendly and nice. Only general behavior questions asked. Be confident and show yourself. That's all
BAPT test wasn't hard

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Union Pacific in October 2010.
Hiring Process is smooth. The BAPT test is pretty simple although its called Advanced Programing Test its just an aptitude test and no programing knowledge is required. Simple plain logic.
2 panel interviews. Pretty straight forward. The usual behavorial about team player, leadership and time management skills.
The applications development seems to be hiring a lot of developers. Its easy to get in. Descisions are made quickly and they give you a nice Hotel to stay in when they call you on site.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Union Pacific in June 2010.
The interview was set up with three individuals who interview you at the same time. They ask you questions based on your programming experience, such as What do you think the major difference between Java and C++ is? Both of which, I have experience in. After this panel interview, an aptitude test was administered, which I was told takes about 2 hours. The test is relatively easy as long as you understand how to program.
