    Community service encouraged by agency
    Excellent benefits

    Cons

    Working in silos - communication between departments is lacking
    Process often takes priority over efficiency
    Workload is often overwhelming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to better develop career development paths and opportunities for staff
    Hiring practices for internal staff sometimes questionable

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sound Transit.

    Interview Details

    For the in-person interview, they asked me to bring my portfolio to show my work. It had photos and marketing collateral in them. They said I was the first one interviewed, so they would like to hold my portfolios to show others, then promised to return them if I wasn't offered the role. They never returned my portfolios, despite my repeated requests. They do not treat candidates with respect by honoring requests or keeping their promises. These were the only copy of my portfolios and now I must start over.
