    I worked at BNSF Railway as an intern for less than a year


    BNSF is an industry leader and is head and shoulders above the likes of Union Pacific and Norfolk Southern. As an intern, you will get great experience and work with employees that have been with the company for 40+ years. The salary is substantially more than any other internship program in the nation, ranging anywhere from $3,000 - $4,000 per month depending on your status in school. They also offer a great relocation package which is unheard of in this economy. Everyone, even the older union employees, were extremely helpful and nice because they make your development their priority. If you work in the mechanical department, you will be in a diesel shop all summer which was great because I got to work on the locomotives that came into the shop to get serviced. Overall, it was a great resume builder and I am glad I did it.


    If you get an internship in operations with BNSF, plan on being relocated to virtually anywhere in the western 28 states. This wouldn't be an issue, but they expect you to get up and move with very little notice. The mechanical department is very disorganized and my boss this past summer had basically no work for me, so I was bored out of my mind. If I could do it over again, I would try to get an internship at the corporate headquarters because they all had a blast this summer and did some interesting projects. I was alone in the middle of the Midwest with no work to do all summer, so you can imagine how much fun that was. If you get an internship in the mechanical department, plan to work early hours, have nothing to do 7 out of the 8 working hours in the day, and be jealous of all the fun the other interns are having.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better internship program with a set of objectives and goals for each intern to accomplish so time is never wasted at work.
