    Pros

    There are many opportunities to move around with Union Pacific. You can become a manager to have a better schedule or take engine service to eventually become an engineer, it's up to you. Just be willing to be on call 24/7 365 days a year. Money is good

    Cons

    On call 365 days a year Never know when your going to work or when your coming home Furlough

    Pros

    Great pay 70k-150k in most areas. You can make 100k+ in your first year. The benefits are extremely good. Some of the older guys complain because they use to not have to pay anything but for about $230 you and your entire family are covered. Oh yeah this is the easiest work you probably will ever do however the hours are long.

    Cons

    Furloughs and culture change. In these days and times you are guaranteed to get laid off at some point in your early career but they will definitely call back. Also, they change rules, management and the way of life so much you never get use to anything. the work schedule being on call is also tough for most people. They have many ways to take off but they are minimizing those by the day and their point system is rough.
