    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Union Pacific (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Approx. 1 week after the job closed I was invited to take a online management test. 5 days after that was scheduled for an interview. I was told of the proposed start date which was 2 months after the interview. I went for a psychological exam. A medical exam and physical fitness test. A background exam. That was followed by a week long training program in Omaha Nebraska. The process was very straight forward and the company did a good job of keeping me informed during every step.

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Union Pacific (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    One phone interview followed by two in person interviews. The first In person interview was one on one. The second was a round of three separate group interviews of four to five interviewers. Given the high number of interviewees in the group interviews they seemed rushed because everyone wanted to ask their questions before the interview ended.
