    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bart in March 2017.

    Interview

    Took almost a year after I applied before I got any response at all. Every step takes a month or more to get a response if you passed and if your eligible for the next. The interview five generic questions that are related to Bart and safety no personalized questions to get a feel for the person. The whole process has nothing to do with your actual qualifications its all pre calculated tests and interview questions.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bart (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There was a panel of 3 people and there were questions related to 3 scenarios (heart attack victim on train, car fire in parking lot, fight on lower level platform) and how would I prioritize each situation. Next, there were questions about working various shifts, integrity questions regarding coworkers stealing and how would I respond. Then, there were typical interview questions. Finally, they make you read a bulletin back to them. At the end, I asked them a few questions. I received an email about 11 days later saying I passed the interview, so now I'm just waiting to hear about my background check and whether or not I got the position!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bart (Oakland, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This was a computer test. It's the first process in the interview. You take a computer test to see if you know. There was a total of 19 questions. You get an email before hand with study guide but its very misleading. I had applied for a computer Trainer position the study guide was all engineering and Circuit question and answers. That threw me off and I went in the wrong mind sit. You have to get a passing score to move to the panel interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bart.

    It was a behavior interview instead of a technical interview. The people who interviewed me was pretty friendly and I learned quite a lot from the internship. If you ever get a chance to work at BART as an intern, I would suggest you go for it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bart.

    Interview

    5 relatively simple interview questions. Nothing that I hadn't heard before in other interviews. Very structured and planned out which made it feel like they were simply going thru the motions. My interviews was over the phone, while most of the interns had in-person interviews, so phone interviews do not put you at a disadvantage at all.

    Senior Administrative Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bart (Oakland, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was through a staffing firm so I was interviewed directly from the supervisor I was working with.

    If you are going for full time position there are three main parts if everything goes smoothly.

    First: Phone interview of basic interview questions as why you want to work at BART and some background.

    Second: Three person panel. This will include Dept Mgr, HR Analyst, and a Div Super. They will ask technical questions in the area that you're applying for. Are you a team player? Example of how you are under pressure. What is your level of office etiquette?

    Third: The written exams.(Study up!!!) Most, I see fail this part of the interview. It's not that people don't know the stuff but the get really nervous and are unprepared. This portion will prove that you don't need to be watch over when you're hired and will know who to ask when you have questions.

    In the end make sure the interviewers like you as a person on a personal level...someone might have gotten the same score as you but your personality shines more than a lot of know how.

    Interview Questions

    • Most were past experience questions that were base on soft skills within an office atmosphere.   Answer Question
