Pros: compensation and benefits
Cons: to much favortism.
For twelve years, since I graduated Highschool I dedicated myself to SEPTA from being a station cleaner to a auxiliary supervisor, to a light rail trolley and bus operator. I gave everything I had to make sure I did my job right. Unfortunately when you mess up it does not matter over the years how well you performed as an employee, how safe you did the job. SEPTA does not care about your outside home life when you go through heart breaking situations such as divorce, child custody and it follows you to work you end up making a mistake because your mind is flooded with sadness and a broken heart you forget the little important things to make sure your job is safe. Well that's what happened to me, I made a few errors, was not on top of my performance and I was discharged accused of lying, misrepresenting facts of an incident. Sure the compensation and benefits are excellent but if they can fire you because your on top of the food chain the will cut you loose in a heartbeat. As far as Local 234 Transport Workers Union to save my job, I was told its not worth spending money for an attorney for a case that's not winnable.
