    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Septa (Norristown, PA).

    Interview

    Apply online, called two weeks later, interviewed by a district manager that was an hour late. The interview and training process was a joke. The questions I was asked had nothing to do with whether I could do the job. Interviewer was more concerned about where my degree was going to take me and how that would affect his job.
