    Pros

    Paycheck never bounced. Free bus pass.

    Cons

    Cubicles. Copiers prone to breakdown. Upper level of middle management are political appointees as a rule and have little to know knowledge of transit industry.

    Advice to Management

    Too top-heavy. Try to have 8 employees for each supervisor and not the other way around. BTW, is George G. Still there? Check that fact, please.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Houston Metro (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied one month ago received a call late around 5-6 pm asking if I could come in for testing , testing was reading and language around 6-7th grade level , once passed they give you a interview date and time , interview was with 3 managers or supervisors , each asking their own questions , what would you do in this and that situation , past job experiences , where do you see yourself 15 yr with metro , ect .... Then you open and fold a stool chair, after your read a paragraph about a man working for metro n his wife n kids n u have to remover key detail events about the paragraph n they your around 8 questions n just wait for a call back to see if you are hired , if not they said you would receive a letter of decline (still waiting on my call or letter) did not decline just waiting on offer , glass door gave me no other option
