    I worked at Union Pacific full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits , team atmosphere, Union Pacific has a very good safety culture. Paid vacation , paid holidays , retirement is railroad retirement and not social security and is about 3 time the amount of what you would draw in social security. Health insurance is about the bet there is.

    Cons

    Seniority!! Will take year to get better position do to Union . You will more than likely have to work 10 years or more before you can hold a position with weekends off, you will also work shift work , nights and or evenings , you will advance more than likely based of seniority instead of work ethics . You will pay union dues and do not have an option of not joining the union. It required. The union is a joke and benefit the employee non what so ever .

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Union Pacific.

    Interview

    Found them at my college and interviewed with them on campus the following day. They asked me some simple questions and tried to get a feel for what I am after in my position. Seemed like good people to work for and the guy interviewing me looked to be the supervisor on site as well. 3 panel sitting across from me.
