    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MTA - Metropolitan Transportation Authority in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed once over the phone after someone I knew contacted somebody at the MTA. The people I emailed and spoke with were all very nice, and mostly asked me about my interest in transit. They were more than willing to discuss their current projects with me before and after we had gone through the technical part of the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at MTA - Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

    Interview Details

    Very easy interview, just asked about stuff on resume and discussed the job. Workers seem nice, office seems a bit outdated. Saw a typewriter at one point. Clean with cubicles. Very "Dilbert-esque" feel. I barely said anything, one guy explained the job for most of the interview, the other grilled me on my resume and gave me standard interview questions. Afterwards I was asked if I had any questions (had a couple) and then left.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at MTA - Metropolitan Transportation Authority in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for a interview. No phone screening or anything. I went in the Manager of
    Environmental Protection spoke about what they do and the position. Asked almost no questions. She was very nice and that was all. I believe they had already picked a candidate and had me there to meet a quota. I called back to ask if they had any questions for me and when they would decide on a candidate. I have not received an email or a call yet. Unprofessional and would not work there if they offered me a job.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Did not expect the interviewer to talk so much about the position and not ask many questions.   Answer Question
