    I worked at American Public Transportation Association full-time (More than a year)


    It is a wonderful stepping-stone for college grads if you're looking for employment in the non-profit or transportation industry.


    Management does not fully value the employees; They stick together on issues they don't necessarily agree upon when it comes to decisions regarding lower-level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize your HR Department and have someone represent or be the voice for support staff.

    Program Manager Interview

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Public Transportation Association (Washington, DC) in April 2015.


    I applied online and was invited to interview a few days later. The interview itself was straightforward and pleasant - just an informal conversation with the hiring manager, who brought a list of questions and took notes as we chatted.

    The main issue was with the follow-up, of which there was absolutely zero. I contacted both the hiring manager and the HR representative directly after the interview, and I followed up with each a couple of times in the following weeks. There was not a single response to any outreach attempt. I eventually happened to notice that the position had been removed from APTA's career site and just assumed I wasn't selected...but honestly, who knows? The lack of updates from the organization was disappointing and unprofessional, and I'm not sure I'd want to work for an organization that can't even manage its hiring process.
