Best internship program that was carried out successfully
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The pay, relocation amount, housing, transportation, and hours were the best aspects to the internship.


Downers

I do not like the 20 minute presentation at the end of the summer, although I do see it necessary.


Advice to Potential Interns

Most of the interns had a mentor, but there were still quite a few of us that didn't have one. It would have been nice to be paired with someone for that purpose.

rising junior completes summer of learning while producing meaningful projects that will be used in the future
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- my work will be used in the future and some of it is already being used
- some of my findings resulted in action by other managers to work on them
- the people and successful at ease culture


Downers

not really anything


Advice to Potential Interns

the company is very successful and an industry leader, but does not maintain a stressful corporate culture. the best way to describe it is relaxed efficient in that no one appears stressed out most of the time because everyone does their work without question and does it well. management will give you less than you can realistically handle. it is expected that you as an employee ask for more work/responsibility if you have a desire to move up. so if you are self driven and know what you want, UP is a great place to make a name for yourself. a really enjoyable experience overall.


Advice to Management

none

Union Pacific....More than Just Trains
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect of my internship was that I got to work on projects that are related to my field of study.


Downers

What I liked least was working on a different floor from my team.


Advice to Potential Interns

Union Pacific is a great company to work for because they care about their workers including interns. This internship will allow you to work on real work projects that go along with your degree and that will actually be used.


Advice to Management

There should be more opportunities to network with the different departments in the company.

Fantastic Opportunity, Fantastic Experience
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Meeting senior level executives. Relevant and interesting project to work on. Networking opportunities. Company-assisted housing for the summer.


Downers

Truly liked everything about my internship. Biggest downside was the distance from home -- no opportunity to see family during the summer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be flexible and willing to learn. Enjoy the experience, but take it seriously as the company is evaluating you just as you are learning about them.


Advice to Management

Assist with housing for the summer. Provide training along with a work assignment.


Would You Recommend
