    I worked at New Jersey Transit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Steady work good medical benefits

    Cons

    Inconsistent raises to non-agreement employees, age bias, promotion favoritism, lack of recognition for experience, clueless upper management and union influenced polices and reduction/elimination of non-agreement benefits

    Advice to Management

    Recognize experience and don't discriminate against older employees. Stop reducing non-agreement benefits that were promised when they were first hired.

    I worked at New Jersey Transit full-time

    Pros

    New Jersey Transit offers good job security, employee training to keep abreast with computer programs, school reimbursement, good health benefits and a big plus is the ability to use your work ID to board the bus and train for free! That was really nice, saved a lot of $$ on commute. The only drawback that annoyed me is that we went 10 plus years without a raise in salary. Otherwise a great place to work.

    Cons

    No salary increase for 10 plus years

    Pros

    Great freindly environment, your on the road for the most part, benifits are great

    Cons

    I believe the starting pay should be more due to the things the drivers have to deal with on a average day

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay hourly pay please

    Pros

    good pay, the healthcare benefits are the best I've had, the retirement plan is unmatched by any previous job I've had

    Cons

    hours are all over the place. Since shifts are seniority based, expect to have overnights and middle of the week day's off for years. While middle management leaves us alone for the most part (unless there is an incident), upper management and the FRA (Federal Railroad Administration) seem to push for stricter punishments.
