BART is a great place to work!

I have been working at Bart

ProsThe San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District is an equal opportunity employer. Applicants are not discriminated against because of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, national origin, disability, ancestry, marital status, veteran status, medical condition (cancer-related), genetic information or any protected category prohibited by local, state or federal laws. The BART Human Resources Department will make reasonable efforts in the examination process to accommodate persons with disabilities or for religious reasons.

ConsPositions represented by certain unions have priority consideration for certain positions. There aren't many opportunities for training within the company for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementManager's should always value their employees, remember others look to them for leadership, guidance, or advice. They may also rely on you for career direction and job security.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
