Analyst (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – June 23, 2017
Fast paced work days, always on the go doing something. Sometimes backwards thinking of completing processes and counter productive work flow at times. Most upper management has bullying style but there are a few good managers that make the job more bearable to work in.
Extreme High expectations and not enough time to complete the work in
If you are a Driver you are ok. All others are expendable

Drivers are treated ok. ALL other jobs are expendable. Especially in supervision and management. I was all for working hard / long hours... But the expectations-to-ability-to-meet-them ratio is literally impossible due to lack of support from senior management. You can market a nice image all you want... But I worked with all of those folks who were on the billboards and advertisements and they were unappreciated and miserable. DEFINITELY not a place to spend a career!
None I can think of comparatively speaking
Depressing environment and a bullying senior management team
Working in the Marketing Department is different every day. New projects, love working on our website and love designing. Great manager. Sometimes deadlines can be close, but I get the job done. My co-worker are fun and we have a good team.
System Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Dayton, Ohio – December 19, 2014
If you want to work for a company where it is nearly impossible to get fired then GDRTA is for you. If you want real advancement opportunities and good pay you should look elsewhere.
Salaried employees are expected to work at anytime the authority needs then are expected to take ETO (earned time off) for every minute they are not working. Every other company I have worked for gave salaried employees at least some flexibility in comp time, time (hours not days) off for appointments, etc.
Overall, the benefits package is a little better than standard packages in Dayton. The flexible schedule is very nice if you can get it. I scheduled 40 hours/week and had one afternoon off every week.
If you are not directly involved with driving or maintaining buses you are largely treated poorly.
Driver (Former Employee) – Dayton, Ohio – April 8, 2013
Driving inner city and transporting passengers throughout Dayton, Ohio. I learned to drive in congested traffic, and to interact with the customers. I had no problems with management, all instructions were clear and well through out.
Helped persons with disabilites with their transportation needs.
Reservationist/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – July 19, 2012
Greet ADA clients, take photos of clients, answer phone, make reservations and appointments for clients. Process Project Mobility and Reduced Fare applications. I learned to treat persons with disabilities the same as you would someone who doesn't. And patience. I had the same supervisor the whole time I worked there. She was wonderful to work for. I enjoyed my co-workers at the call center. The hardest part of the job was trying to figure out what the client wanted, whether they were applying for Project Mobility or the Reduce Fare Program. I really enjoyed the drivers and I enjoyed my job.
