    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at New Jersey Transit in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The time that it takes to get into the testing stage definitely varies, but the best part of the process is the interview. It was very non intimidating and they were detailed and job specific about the position. So know what you are getting yourself into.

    Interview Details

    depends on your level of experience, but will hire you with a c.d.l. and train you for your license while paying you. for example ... If you have never driven a bus you will most likely have to take a multiple choice personality test, then get a call saying you passed that and be pulled in for an interview. but if you have over 2-3 years experience you may be overlooked on the test and go straight to the interview.

    Negotiation Details
    no negotiation phase, but they did give me a choice of which base i would operate my bus from.
