    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chicago Transit Authority.

    Interview

    It was a recruiter that called and asked me when would I be available for an in person interview with a panel of 4 people. They had a series of questions that each one asked me to describe a particular situation that I had experienced.
