    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Brooklyn, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Long pre-employment. Still awaiting phone call or email. The HR personnel stated 72 hours or 3 days . There were a lot of applicants there and the process was a bit nerve-racking and tedious. I would suggest to anyone that took the test , when they get called, please walk with your lunch and something to drink. You are not allowed to leave.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Metropolitan Transportation Authority (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very pleasant and comfortable. I met with a HR rep and head of the department. They asked technical questions as part of the interview, being that the department head was involved he was interactive with me in answering the questions. It was one of the most pleasant interviews I ever had, and I was very afraid being that this is a great company, I expected more however it was very informative and provided a great detail run down of the position and the company and department outlook.
