Transitioning Veterans

You've got proven leadership skills, early career management skills, adaptability, comfort with working in challenging environments and a performance-oriented work ethic. You're the perfect fit for us and here is why we are the perfect fit for you.


We've helped thousands of servicemen and servicewomen make the transition to civilian life and we can help you as well. Today, over 20 percent of our company's employees have military experience, with some still active in the National Guard or Reserves.

Our recruiters are connected with most military transition and education offices, actively participate in career fairs, information sessions and employer panels and serve on local military committees and boards.

Connecting our Veterans – UP VETS


UP VETS, our veteran employee resource group (ERG) was created to help attract, develop and retain veterans within our company. The group is open to all employees and gives military veterans a chance to connect with other employees throughout the system as they transition into the company and begin to navigate their careers.- As a member of UP Vets, you will have immediate access to a network of fellow service members who provide a constant source of camaraderie and mentorship.

Supporting the Wounded Warriors Project

Union Pacific has donated over $200,000 in the past two years to the Wounded Warrior Project from one-time tax credits the company earned for hiring veterans meeting various government criteria and plans to do the same with the 2015 credits. The company chose to donate tax credit funds in appreciation of its military and veteran employees, and all the country's service men and women.
