Uppers

- Great Pay

- School Remains as Top Priority

- Great Benefits

- Friendly Co-Workers

- Teamwork

- Real World Problems/Solutions

- Reasonable Expectations - they don't expect you to know everything and they are happy to answer questions.\

Downers

- The first week of work can be overwhelming because of all the information you are given.

Advice to Potential Interns

- Be Punctual - always show up on time to work, meetings, getting back from lunch.



- Be Polite - a please and thank you can go a long way in this company.



- Be Presentable - They have a dress code and it is enforced, but it''s not unreasonable



- Be Personable - Don't be afraid to talk to people, networking can be a great skill to have.



- Be Professional - Believe it or not your manager is not the only person that takes notice of you.



- Be Positive - A positive can-do attitude shows your boss that you care about the job and you're not just wasting their time.



- Participate - There are many different activities sponsored by UP for their interns to participate in. They are fun and a great way to network!



- Have Pride - Your work is your own, be proud of it and own it!



- Be Humble - You don't know everything, no one does if you have information that's useful make it common knowledge.



- ASK QUESTIONS - You're an intern they do not expect you to have mastered your field. It's better to ask a question than to sit at your desk and twiddle your thumbs





Most important of all...



- Have Fun - You're work experience is what you make it. There is no reason you can not work hard but still have fun. Now is the time to make mistakes and get messy. That's how you learn, your manager expects you to make mistakes don't be afraid. Be open to change and make the best of it.



That is all the advice I can give you, your experience is yours and yours alone to make the best or worst time of your life.

Sample Interview Questions

I cannot provide any as interview questions are very specific to each department, as well as each team.

Advice to Management

It would help the interns more if the first day was not so intense. It's a lot of information to take in and it's kinda like pouring water on a saturated sponge.

"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.
