I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Union Pacific in March 2010.

Interview Details – The interviewer panel consists of 3 persons, heads of the hiring department and related depts. I had met the decision maker before the interview in a different occasion. The interview was unorganized. Questions were very very technical to the job requirements. It was so specific like what the alpha factor in a formula means.
