Hiring on to Union Pacific?

Hello,
I am currently 18 years old and on my second year of college.
When I graduate with a bachelors degree, I would like to pursue a career in railroading and eventually work my way up as an engineer.
I always liked trains and ever since I could remember, I wanted to become an engineer.
I know that family life will be almost nonexistent and that the job is 7/24/365.
Now I am not a foamer as I cannot tell you which model a locomotive is and I find them kinda weird with their vests with many patches and huge cameras.
I had ADD when I was younger but I have grown out of it and no longer take Strattera for it anymore. Will that still disqualify me from entering train service?
I have also heard that Union Pacific has a test battery that consists of reading comprehension and basic math. What kind of math is on the test? Is it addition, subtraction, division, and fractions?
Thank you for your time.

Hello,

I have applied with Union Pacific in the past, worked with several railroaders and am currently part of a small railroad in Texas. I, too, have wanted to be a railroader my whole life and have been determined to make it happen.

You already have a good grasp of the idea of railroading, and don't care much for foamers. That's a prerequisite, as they tend to distract and bother the real working folks. At any rate, no previously having ADD won't disqualify you from train service; if you are able to prove that you're up for the job and willing to learn, you should do fine.

Once your application's been accepted, but before you're invited to an interview is when you'll get acked to go take the test. I took it too and was freaked out, but it wasn't too bad. The biggest math you'll have to worry about is addition, multiplication and real-life applications. For instance, determining the total weight of a train with given car weights, the axle loading and thus how many locomotives you will need. At least, that's largely what it was when I went through several years ago.

Trust me on this at least: I'm not brilliant by any stretch of the word, and scored way over a 90% on the test. Go and give it your all, best of luck!
