I worked at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (Less than a year)

I applied online. I interviewed at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Rigorous interview process. Round 1 was a standard interview consisting primarily of scenario-based questions (Tell me about a time when...). There is very little give and take or conversation - you just answer the question and move on to the next. Round 2, Assessment Day, was a four-hour interview consisting of 4 parts.

You are given a folder of materials with an hour to read through and digest them. You then have an hour to present and discuss your findings with your interviews, followed by a writing exercise at the end.
- The case study exercise assumes that your boss has been out for a week, and you have been filling in for them. Upon their return, you are asked to present all the major issues they missed (in order of priority) and make recommendations for how to resolve them. Answer Question
