"I wanted to work for a company where my work and dedication would contribute to my success..."
Military Branch: Army National Guard and the Air Force
Joined Union Pacific in 2012
When I left active duty I wasn't sure where I wanted to work. I worked as a consultant for USSTRATCOM for two years while I researched companies and how my military skills transferred into the civilian industry. I wanted to work for a company where my work and dedication would contribute to my success, not the typical corporate ladder climbing you hear about. I also wanted to work for a company that cared about their employees, conducted business ethically, and had the resources to get things done. As I did my research I found the rail transportation industry to be thriving. Union Pacific is a company that cares for its people, has the means to get the work accomplished and has a bigger mission of improving our country's economic welfare. Already my dedication to my job and my work efforts have been acknowledged and rewarded. I couldn't have chosen a better company!
