If you are looking for a new career or your first full-time job out of high school, Union Pacific may be the right place to start a new journey for a company that helps build America. Just ask Justin Ward, a nine-year train crew veteran located in Roseville, California, who says working for Union Pacific has changed his life for the better. When it came time for his son, Austin Biggs, to find a job, Ward recommended Union Pacific. His son is now a first-year train crew employee.

“You get what you put into a railroad job, and it can fit anyone’s job skills,” said Biggs.

In addition to Engineering, Mechanical and Transportation crafts, Union Pacific also offers career opportunities in customer service, finance, logistics, sales, marketing, supply chain and tech, among other areas.

Ward’s recommendation and his son’s hire earned him a $500 referral bonus through the railroad’s Employee Referral Program, “Great People Know Great People.” Since its launch in December of 2021, the campaign has paid out over 1,100 referrals, resulting in more than $550,000 being paid to Union Pacific employees.

Union Pacific is currently hiring for train crew employees across the rail network. In Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Oregon there are hiring incentives between $10,000 and $25,000.

Union Pacific offers a competitive salary and benefits, as well as a free college education through the University of Nebraska at Omaha, which offers online degree options.
