Car Equipment Division of New York City Transit Authority

Car Inspector (Current Employee)

ProsThe job is stable. The benefits are good. There are plenty of locations to work inside the system so one can be near their home to reduce their commute time to work. The work environment is safe and the MTA provides you will all the tools and equipment you need to do the job safely. The management in this division is not unreasonable towards the employees for the most part.

ConsMost of the work is repetitive assembly line type, or routine inspection type work. Many of the tasks or procedures are boring and require very little creative input. I you are new in the system it may take you many years to build up the seniority needed to get a job that is close to home. Hours and assignments are not flexible once you choose a position, shift, rest days to work on.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe first level up into management is to become a Supervisor which is done via a written test and a subsequent promotion list. Once one you become a supervisor, the jobs are then awarded based on seniority. All jobs after that are applied to using a resume and usually awarded based on the friends and buddy system. One would surprised about how many high level managers there are in Subway Car Maintenance that cannot even operate a screwdriver, read a scematic, or use a voltmeter. Such role models depress the morale of the rank and file who believed that education and ability are what it takes to move ahead in this division. It is not. All one has to do is just be friends with right connections. This serves as a disincentive for employees to prove themselves for the job because they know in the end it will not matter anyway.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
