Hostile and high pressured environment not conducive to the desire to remain working there for long
It was a very high pressured environment. You were on the phones all day long and had to ask permission to use the bathroom. When you wanted to take a day off although you had sick days, your job was in jeopardy by management. When you called in sick, the deputy director demanded a dr.'s note although you had sick days.

if you are just looking for a stable job with good benefits.
if you are just looking for a stable job with good benefits this is the place to work. Don't expect to work with latest technologies . Nothing much to say about MTA since I just started to explore.

Work as temporary employee for the bridge and Tunnel
I work at the verrazano bridge as a temporary Bridge and Tunnel officer for 2 months...It was a very fast pace location, however, I did enjoy working because the senior officers were very helpful and I was able to add another experience to job description.

Bridge and Toll
The job is pretty good and relaxed, you are always busy and no breaks when the cars come. Great pay, you just can’t have thin skin and not let little things get to you.

When u apply for a mta job through their website and you application passed the pre screening. How long does it take for them to call you for an interview?
Asked Sep 19, 2017
I have several jobs that have said "passed pre screening" for a year or more. I have never been called or emailed by anyone. Granted these are all LIRR jobs, don't know if that makes a difference.
Answered Jan 25, 2019
It all depends on their "cycles". You might land on their immediate cycle on will call you within a week or two. Or, they'll save your name for the next cycle and will get a call within a month or so. As long as you're clean from drugs and don't have an outstanding background, it's worth the wait. Don't ever think that they'll ignore your application unless you gave them the wrong phone #/email address to contact you. *Yikes!*

What is the training for bus driver like?
Asked Aug 11, 2017
A ghettofied boot camp. Very strict rules on attendance, timing, and cell phone prohibition during class. First 5 weeks is class(textbook)/driving, and the last 3 weeks is driving with a variety of mentors with their assigned routes so you can get the understanding of the job. Once you graduate, your job will get easier as time goes and you will love being out there on the road. *You must have very thick skin and mental focus to endure the training. Some instructors have a way to get on your nerves. But get pass thru the noise, and you'll be alright!*

Are there MTA work at home jobs?
Asked Mar 19, 2017
None that I know of. Even if it's computer work, or engaging with customers, it's hardly or rarely any home work assignments. They will always have a "place" like the union station or by any other rail stations to do light work if you're not going to be driving.
Answered Jul 12, 2018
No MTA work at all jobs are for driving the bus
