    Managerial Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MARTA (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on-line, about 2 weeks later, got a call in the morning for an interview a week later. Met with 2 managers who had the most canned interview I have ever see in my life. They both had a stapled multi-page questionairre that they were clearly pressured to fill out in detail. It did not feel right. It felt too legal and strange. The top manager was obviously not at all interested in me, by background, my experience or my portfolio, was ONLY interested in filling out the extensive form in front of him. I felt like I was wasting my time and energy. At the end during my Q&A he interuppted me during my first question and cut off the whole interview. I was very polite, spoke professionally, and was truly disturbed I had wasted any time getting excited about this job.

    Configuration Management Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MARTA (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Pretty simple and common process. Most employees come in through various contract positions first. HR took quite awhile to close out things and getting proper paperwork to me. Once the interview was scheduled everything went pretty quickly from there. Panel style interview and various questions from everyone. Opportunity to ask questions at the end and time to elaborate on your individual skill set.

    A panel of 5 people will interview you, including recruitment manager. They will ask you scenario-based questions and how you you handle them as a current or potential officer. The process was fast, as I've heard it takes long for the recruitment process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at MARTA (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    After numerous interviews I received a rejection letter from their applicant tracking system. They couldn't even bother to call or send a personalized email. This is disappointing due the time spent on the interviews.
    After reviewing the company further, I found that they have a very toxic work environment and I'm glad I wasn't selected.
