    Good starting salary but no raises in last 5 years.

    Customer Service (Former Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    ProsExcellent benefits. Very generous PTO. Good employee assistance program.

    ConsDue to budget cuts no increase in salary, however, more responsibilities added to your job description every review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNon administration and non management employees work the hardest for this company, they deserve pay increases at least to keep up with yearly increase of living expenses.

    Used to be grea...the public sector just isn't worth it anymore...

    Safety (Current Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    ProsGreat benefits, decent pay. Short and well known chain of command in all departments. Most management came from some sort of working craft so they know what their employees do first hand.

    ConsNo raise for over five years! More benefits being taken away as time goes on. The problem being a "private" company owned and operated by the state government so not only does it change every 4 years, but there are political cronies hired into do nothing jobs and the board just caters to the politcal climate

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being a political entity and start being a company...like the one that used to care for and protect its employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent career Decision

    Bus Operator (Current Employee)
    Township of Washington, NJ

    ProsAt New Jersey Transit you have security. Medical, Dental, vision, pension, flexibility, no one standing over your shoulder telling you what to do. Along with a great pay rate, this makes this company the best company to work for.

    ConsIn the beginning, when you first get hired, things can be hard. You will probably need a part-time job to make ends meet. But, that too is only temporary. As they say, you have to pay your dues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to front line people on how to improve service. Schedule system wide meet and greet with upper management and listen to some of the things people have to say

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
