A job not a career
Van Operator (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 2, 2013
Pros: pay & benefits
Cons: managment's lack of knowledge on the road & no accomendations for drivers
Overall I had no problem with Metro. My coworkers were great and most of my passengers were as well. However the atmosphere was bad. Not professional at all. Company does not help drivers in any way and they will use you when they can and place blame on you for everything under the sun, even when the facts say otherwise. Pay can be good but you will – more... go through a lot because Metro does not accomodate for their drivers going through dangerous conditions whether its dealing with the sickly, unruly passengers, road conditions or weather. – less

Very productive place to work, friendly people.
Project Coordinator / Administrative (Former Employee), new york, nyMarch 6, 2013
Pros: most of clients are friendly, my boss is very nice, also my co-workers are nice.
Cons: sometime working late nights searching through too many boxes for one sheet of paper.
A typical day at work would be answering the telephone, taking request for various clients. Some clients need their own financial information that is stored away at an Iron Mountain storage facility; they need it within three hours. I call the storage, let them know this box need to be a rush order. I in turn receive the box in less than two hours, – more... search for the document,scan it, then e-mail it to the client. This happens more than 5 time per week. – less

Can be a fun place
Driver/Operator (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMarch 4, 2013
A typical day at work was to report to work on time, pulling out the bus on time, dead head to point where we start route, repeat route several times in the day, after shift, dead head back to bus yard.

I have learned so much, driving skills, ways to pre-trip a bus and how to deal with difficult customers.

Management expect job to be done
Co-workers – more... just have to survive and keep their job

I believe the hardest part of the job is not getting enough cooperation to ease the stress from supervisors, and management( at that time)

The most enjoyable part of the job, was driving out there in early part of the morning and pulling to the first stop to see the dozens of customers waiting to be picked up to go to their destination. helping them get to their destination make me feel I have accomplish my job – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 3, 2013
Pros: free lunches, company sponsored events, and teamwork.

Life at Metro was busy. I learned to deal with all levels of personnel as well as Management. I had very helpful co-workers and established friendships that will last a lifetime. The hardest part of the job was going a couple of years without getting a raise. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the satisfaction on the faces of my internal – more... and external customers. – less

Productive and Fun Work Place
Bus Operator (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CANovember 2, 2012
Pros: opportunity to grow, benefits

Metro is a fun place to work. We have lunchings, card games, pool tables, and a tv room. Management have employee recognition
lunchings for the drivers and supervisors and is very
helpful when personal situations accure. Metro is like a family, everyone there is willing to give a helping hand to make sure things run properly which make work less stressful. – more... What I enjoy the most about metro is its not just a job its a career that gives you a chance to advance with in the company, even though as a bus operator it can be stressful dealing with irate customers at times. – less

Developmental Aide (Former Employee), New York, New YorkOctober 23, 2012
Pros: paid vacation
Cons: cant think of any
A typical day at work would be supervising the individuals in a safe and secure environment. I learned that mental illness and disability is harmless and is not contagous, it requires love and attention like any human being. Management was strict and by the book. Co-workers were the best in town, I wouldn't trade them for no other.The hard part was – more... returning to a work place after one of the individual expired. The most enjoyable part was the sense of knowing that I could satisfy the need of an individual with simple things such as a smile. – less

Not a good company in Cincinnati Ohio
Employee (Former Employee), United StatesAugust 8, 2012
This company is very unprofessional and I have the proof to prove it. They are tacky and lacking in the real work force. I think they treat African American employee like slave. All african american people can do for them is to drive the bus and clean. The HR department is confuse and don't know what they are doing. The education level among management – more... is a disgrace. The money is a serious joke. – less

August 16, 2012

I had an encounter with them and I agree100 percent That it is not a good company to work for in Cincinnati, Ohio. They want top notch people but don't want to pay top notch money. If you have some serious skills and education they are not the place for people of color. The charters that work in HR need to be trained better.

October 30, 2012

Most of the people are waiting to retire in the next 3 to 5 years, mentally they already are retired. The worst job I ever had!!! 20 yrs behind the times. No aspiration to make improvement or enhancements which is required; an “upgrade” within personal skills, knowledge base, equipment and treads. Most of the staff are very nice but are stuck in the mid 1900’s change is a challenge (20th century). Metro update your staff the rest will follow!

Co- workers were ok I never got close enough.The hardest part was all those swing hours from 2am till when ever. Greeting, transporting the public on your routes – more... all over the city. – less
