    I worked at New Jersey Transit (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    --Medical benefits
    --Most of my co-workers
    --Constant Challenges

    Cons

    --Pay has not kept up with inflation for the last 6+yrs
    --Lack of resources

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to truly embrace a "this is us" mentality. Some managers didn't really embrace the team concept. I feel they felt the only want to get ahead was at the expense of another. Of course, this is not all managers, but the departments that performed the worst exhibited this mentality. There's also a lack of transparency and trust that I noticed in my tenure.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New Jersey Transit.

    Interview

    SAR-situation, action, result. It is not that much to tell. Just a regular interview. That is the type of question they ask for all interviews. So? Prepare for the job and be honest.
