Topics regarding layoffs at Union Pacific Corp.

Why did you apply for a job here?

I often wonder what I did wrong in my life to deserve to end up at Union Pacific. I knew before that the situation here is not good at all, but I thought people were exaggerating and it couldn’t be this bad. This is one big joke of a company from... —  read more

Would anybody stay?

If you were offered a decent severance package, not even anything spectacular but enough to create a safety net between jobs, would you take it? I think people are so fed up with all the cr-p here that everybody would jump at the opportunity. He-l... —  read more
