Hey I recently applied for train crew at Union Pacific and after my hiring session my status changed to alternate. Just wondering if I still have a legitimate chance to get the job or if anyone has had experience with this? I really want the job so I'm hoping I still have a chance!! :confused:
Thanks, Brad.
