Room for career growth, decent college program, not a micromanaging atmosphere (pretty relaxed and not overly stressful), you don't necessarily need a college education to get into management positions.
Too many managers and you only can get decent pay to have one of those manager titles. The pay is not competitive to other transit agencies. They expect you to devote all your time to the company so you don't have the best work/life balance. Most promotions are more who you know ie, internal, than having better qualifications.
Advice to Management
Consider adding more benefits if you don't want to pay more to keep people around like better workout facilities and other life benefits (free healthy food/drinks, possible entertainment rooms with pool/games, not just TVs, for all of the operators who have split shifts). The location with the best facilities is of course the headquarters which is downtown while the majority of employees work in south salt lake or Murray.
I applied online. I interviewed at Utah Transit Authority (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.
Applied online through company website. Contacted 2-3 weeks later to come and test/interview. Interview was a 4 person panel. Follow up to interview was a ride-along with a couple supervisors. A week and a half later they contacted me for references. A week after that I received an offer.
Very professional and well organized. UTA was one of the best I've ever interviewed with in terms of professionalism and communication of "next steps" in the process.
