    Transit Bus Operator - Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Los Angeles Metro in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was invited to take IQ test after one week. Test was pretty basic - then invited to interview and fingerprinting (for background check). Interview was three weeks after application. Interview (one on one) with senior driver. Interview questions were the general type "why do you want to work here? Five or six written questions concerning possible passenger issues - none had correct answer but probably had incorrect answer. I think the intent was to see if you have the ability to approach a problem with more than one way to solve it. After interview a hiring session was held (another 2 weeks) then an assessment test (another week) then a physical (another week) then an offer - but training only starts once a month - so another one to four weeks. This is not a job to apply for if you need work within a couple months.

    Interview Questions
    • Passenger boards with ten dollar bill. You have no change - what do you do?   View Answer
    • Passenger pays and boards. You notice he/she smells really bad. Other passengers come to you to complain. What do you do?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation - union contract. Drivers all start as part-time Max pay rate for part-time drivers is 80% of full time (takes 30 mo to get there). Very few benefits for part-time. Can take 2 to 3 years to become full time.

In the City of Angels, it takes more than wings to get around. Thanks to the bus and rail systems of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA or Metro), millions of passengers are carried through one of the most populous counties in the US via Metro Bus, Metrolink (commuter rail), and Metro Rail (subway and light rail). Together, they cover an extensive freeway network, four airports, and various ports. LACTMA operates these systems and it serves as a transportation planner, designer, and builder.
