Uppers

Excellent pay. Excellent managers and employee base. Good full-time prospects. Excellent corporate experience.

Downers

There are many layers of abstraction in a large corporation. Not a lot of control or insight into other departments and areas outside of your own. Internship tends to develop a set of specific skills that may not be useful in other positions.

Advice to Potential Interns

Union Pacific is a big company full of passionate employees that work hard and see things through to completion. It is a serious, results-oriented environment with very little patience for messing around. If this does not align with your ideals, you are wasting your time.

Advice to Management

Try to get interns more involved in higher-level discussions. Find out the skillset of your interns and tailor their work towards developing their abilities.

I work on actual projects with the team.

Downers

It is a time consuming commitment.

Advice to Potential Interns

Research what the company does. Union Pacific has many opportunities, and it would be beneficial to know what area you want to go into beforehand.

Advice to Management

I think more job-specific training would be helpful as opposed to learn as you go, but other teams operate differently, so some of them probably have training like this.

Sample Interview Questions

They asked about my interest in the company. They asked about my knowledge in the field I was applying for. They asked about what type of work I would prefer to do. They also asked regular interview questions, like strengths and weaknesses.

Being able to learn so many things in such a short amount of time

Downers

I enjoyed the inclusivity of being involved in department wide projects. It made the interns feel like they were valued and appreciated.

Advice to Potential Interns

I think it would be helpful to stress the fact that it is much harder to get a full time position here than an internship

Advice to Management

Employee retention and compensation. They have been on a hiring freeze for quite some time now and continue to increase the work load while downsizing the employee population

Sample Interview Questions

Since you do not have a 4.0 GPA, please tell me about your hardest class you have taken in college and what you did to overcome that challenge.

Networking within the corporation and getting a feel for corporate America.

Downers

Many of my projects are completed very quickly or are very repetitive. I am usually bored or feel as though I am not doing anything.
