    Average Interview

    Application

    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.
