Valuable and Progressive Workplace
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: free transit
Insure the citizens of Houston get on-time and reliable service. Metro is a Amazing place to work, if you land in the right department.

The overall moral of Metro is above average, co-workers and management take real pride in what we do here. The hardest part of the job would have to be the fact that transit never stops. There are things you will miss with your family, and it's hard to plan vacations.

This job was a extremely low paying driving job with no room for advancement. This job pays the bills. The reward was not worth the risk at times.

METROLift Senior Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 23, 2013
Pros: quiet room with recliners, park and ride, free local bus services, employee picnic, healthcare-health fairs
Cons: no breaks
Working with Persons with a disability is a blessing. A typical day at work was very productive, very busy from the start of the day until the end. Within the Transit Authority classes was offered to increase knowledge of every area of my job. Employee training was available and we were constantly learning new things at all times. My co-workers and I have developed a close bond, a good work relationship, we were just like family.The hardest part of the job was knowing that someone was denied Lift services and had to appeal. The appeal process did take some time, and the customer would call to complain. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I made a difference in the lives of the people i talked to over the phone as well as interviewed in person. At the end of the the day 1 word to sum it up, successful.

Better place for middle age career changers. Many employees worked for decades and therefore, you must learn to wait your turn. However, this is one of the places you can have lasting professional relationships and stability for the most part.
