    I have been working at Intercity Transit

    Pros

    The employees at Intercity Transit are a tight knit group and many times I have heard persons in management, supervisor staff and operators refer to the employees as part of the Intercity Transit family. There is a very Dynamic open door policy with all upper level personnel responding to ideas and suggestions. Many of our employees have worked at IT for over twenty years and some have been there over thirty. With that much dedication to Intercity Transit, it must be a special place to work. It was voted #1 in the country for a reason...the employees working together as a team.

    Cons

    For an operator there is a high level of responsibility. The hours can be difficult and time with the family, in the early part of your career, can be limited because of schedule obligations.

    Transit is an industry that is run by time and the employees of IT have definitive deadlines that cannot be manipulated. We answer to time and the public.

    The public. They can be fickle and we have to be able to respond to all sorts and types of situations that can come up during anytime, any day. This includes management. Between working with the governmental bodies, cities, construction schedules and limitations, and other transit agencies it is sometimes difficult to have everything mesh as it should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership does an excellent job, they already receives feed back on a regular basis with a truly operational open door policy. One thing I would like to see is each department, one at a time, be given a day that is completely geared towards them. It would be the departments decision if they want a special lunch, small event, or something that is meant for them only. Their day, their pat on the back.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intercity Transit in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Good company interview. Two panels, 1 hour each.
    Both panels of senior leadership/management and both included an HR representative.
    10-15 questions each requiring short, succinct but descriptive responses. Interview ended with interviewee allowed to ask questions (depending on time remaining)
    Would suggest finding out everything you can about agency before interview, make up a list of anticipated questions and asking contacts to look at your list and let you know if anything is missing.
    Practice your answers.
