    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MTA - Metropolitan Transportation Authority (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email - was given an appointment for HR and told I would go to a different office after and to allow time.They did not tell me Madison and 40 something for very long HR and then down town for interviews with hiring managers. HR was a nice woman who told many stories about why people left - mostly people who could not handle talking in conference rooms and not disturbing others and using their own time for personal things, HR rep seemed shocked when I said that I felt personal vacation time not endlessly leaving early is what people need to use at times. Had to go all the way to financial district to do interview with two managers. Very haughty people and very condescending manner. Who would accept an offer with them unless unemployed?

    Interview Questions
