    Pros

    Good work-life balance

    Some departments function better than others.

    Pros

    I have a pre employment testing next week. I'm super nervous I really want to work for the city they have really great insurance I have family who work for the city but in different parts and they have great insurance.

    Cons

    Can anybody provide me with some helpful tips about the test what I'm going to expect or anything? They only sent me a email stating I've been selected for pre employment and need to schedule my testing.

    I worked at Houston Metro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co workers are nice and respectable. Ride free on the any Metro bus or train and free education.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are below average. SERIOUS WAGE GAP (50%) between upper and lower management. Had to cut grass from time to time and I am an electrician.

    Advice to Management

    PAY INCREASE for immediate supervisors and workers. Public Institutions should not discriminate against worker benefits.

    I have been working at Houston Metro full-time

    Pros

    You get to ride the trains and buses for free. You also get to interact with members of the public.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to answer questions from strangers on how to get to various places within the system on the bus or on the train.

    Advice to Management

    Management should really focus on promoting from within. This would improve employee relations and morale. This would encourage more employees to try harder.
