    I have been working at Los Angeles Metro part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    3 pensions, descent benefits, consecutive days off, work as much as you want.

    Cons

    You have to put in a long time before you can get month vacation, but hey it doesn't matter....vacations are paid. As for floater days, I would like to see more.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good, most used to be operators so they understand a good amount most of the time.

    I worked at Los Angeles Metro part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice staff, very professional.

    Cons

    Does not pay much for responsibility, does not give you a chance if you make a minor mistake.

    Advice to Management

    You should give people a chance and not force them to resign if they forget their permit once. At least let them come back one more time without having to do the whole application process all over again.

    Pros

    good stepping stone to get into other career fields in any local city, state, government type jobs, seeing that you worked here; vision and dental plans are decent.

    the public and some ghetto af co-workers

    I have been working at Los Angeles Metro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very accessible via Metro or Metrolink, free unlimited TAP Card, great location, CEO is very knowledgeable, conducts many good company events

    Cons

    No paid time off, vacation or sick days as a Trainee. Might take a while to get promoted. Cafeteria and gym for the company could use some work

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to give Entry Level Trainee's paid time off because if the company forces its employees to take holidays, they should get paid that day

    I have been working at Los Angeles Metro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    full benefits after you become a f/t bus operator after 18 months of being p/t, free rides as a employee

    Cons

    If your out on medical leave for a year and your doctor don't release you back in time to return to work they will fire you and you loose all your seniority, benefits, health insurance etc and you have to reapply all over again as a new applicant and start at the bottom go threw training all over again. If your doctor say you can return but with limitation they will not find you any work in the company ( light duty) and you will still be fired. Also they want let you move up because inside people put there family members up there in high positions so you can forget management positions even though you have the experience to do it. You want move up anywhere in the company unless your there at least 5 years, good attendance record etc

    Advice to Management

    listen to the bus operator stop listening to passengers all the time because they lie
