About Union Pacific Railroad
The Union Pacific Railroad (reporting mark UP) is a Class I line haul freight railroad that operates nearly 8,500 locomotives over 32,000 route-miles in 23 states west of Chicago, Illinois and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Union Pacific Railroad network is the largest in the United States and is serviced by more than 47,000 employees.
Union Pacific Railroad is the principal operating company of Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE: UNP); both are headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the years Union Pacific Corporation has grown by acquiring other railroads, notably the Missouri Pacific, Chicago & North Western, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, and the Southern Pacific (including the Denver & Rio Grande Western).
Union Pacific Corporation's main competitor is the BNSF Railway, the nation's second largest freight railroad, which also primarily services the Continental U.S. west of the Mississippi River. Together, the two railroads have a duopoly on all transcontinental freight rail lines in the U.S.
The current chairman of Union Pacific Corporation is Lance Fritz.
What to Expect When Interviewing
The interview procedure at Union Pacific Railroad is similar to competitors. There is a basic skills assessment
which covers subjects including but not limited to reading, writing, speaking, and basic math. Applicants
must bring their resume with them to the interview. Some applicants go through a email screening before
progressing to an in person interview. Former employees have reported that it is important to show that
you are capable of handling stressful situations, working in a fast paced environment, have a flexible schedule,
and communicating with colleagues. Once through the application process, all new employees are required to go through
a formal training.
