I liked the different software tools I've been able to use. I never had a lot of experience with spring or web services before I was here so it's awesome to start messing with those things.

Downers

I don't like that Union Pacific is not open over the weekend. As a student I like to reserve most my time for the week for school and the weekend for work, but they're so flexable with your schedule it works out.

Advice to Potential Interns

The only thing I was worried about was the level of programming competency that I started with. I found out their expectations for entry level programmers is completely reasonable. They help you elevate your skills on the job.

"An internship of networking, learning, and the best step to becoming a corporate pilot"

4.8 of 5 stars

Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspect of my internship is the company willingness to let me be involved in all parts of the department so I am able to expand my knowledge about aviation. Union Pacific has put forth great effort to help me learn and network with other professionals in the field. I also appreciate the type of people that work in this company. I work with some of the best industry professionals in the world that are more than happy to help me put my foot in the door to becoming a professional pilot. Very few college students enjoy their job but I am a lucky one that can say she looks forward to going to work everday.

Downers

What I like least about my internship is that I am either so busy or have very little to do. That is something that the aviation industry faces as a whole.

Advice to Potential Interns

This company gives employees many opportunites, make sure you take full advantage of this. If you put forth a lot of effort into your job, the company is good at realizing this and is sure to show their appreciation.
