I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Los Angeles Metro in Jul 2022

Interview

Interview was done at one of their hiring events. The process was easy. They had people guiding you at each step. Interview was done by 2 people/panel style. They gave you scenario questions and wrote down your answers. One of the questions was about what you would do if you saw your good friend/co-worker stealing from someone else's locker. Another was about what would do if you encountered someone that didn't speak English. In general, seemed more geared toward interpersonal skills. Overall positive experience.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles Metro

Interview

“Bossy” and “High heeled steel toe boots” These are the words that resonate with me still after my interview process with LA Metro Information Technology Systems. The hiring manager and interview panel members were all old Asian men. When I was asked about future career goals, I mentioned that I would like to be in a leadership role involving process improvement and program management. The hiring manager said “so you like being bossy.” What an unoriginal comment because of course women who want leadership roles are “bossy” but men who want leadership roles have “initiative”. Cue eye roll. One of the other interview panel members asked me if I owned a pair of “high heeled steel toe boots” to walk the construction sites. I was so caught off guard by the question that all I could say was no. The other interview panel members just laughed. One of the interview panel members was completely rude and disengaged while on video. He was late, sitting back in his chair, and staring down at his phone. He was so distracted by his phone that he didn’t realize it was his turn to ask questions off the list they were using. He had to ask the other interviewer which number they were on! The recruiter aeon group is absolute garbage. She is disorganized and erratic. Her email domain was disabled and she was unreachable for over a week. Seems like she might not have renewed her domain registration or failed to pay her internet bill. I was given an offer but negotiations shut down because the recruiter refused to negotiate the rate and immediately rejected my counter saying “I wish you the best of luck”. Then, about 2 weeks later, I get an email from the recruiter offering $2.50 more and also including insurance, acting like the previous conversation never happened. Overall, I dodged a bullet with a sexist team and a bumbling fool of a recruiter.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Los Angeles Metro

Interview

I applied, heard back roughly 2-3 weeks afterwards. It seemed like a pretty typical interview starting off with the basic questions then further asking about your interests specific to the position + your background that may relate. They said they'd get back to me in about 2 weeks. It's been about 2 months with no further contact since the interview, so don't expect them to actually follow up with results unless theyre extending an offer.

Interview Questions
  • Why do you want to work here, what experiences do you have that relate to the position, what improvements could the LA metro make, etc
