Its a job. And its what you make of it. To me I look towards a pention and made it. Very few suppervisor are honest and fair. But some how I got in and completed 22 years to get a pension. Most of those years was fun and easy. Couple of the years I had to speak up and fight to keep my job.
A pleasant work atmosphere, good hours and positive work place environment.
Motor Coach Operator (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – August 15, 2018
Arrive at work, clock in, check your bus and proceed on your route. As a motor coach operator I learned many things first how to operate a motor coach safely, instructors were excellent, very thorough and always willing to work with you. As for management they are fair and of course they have to be strict with the daily operation of the transit dept., always willing to hear you out and listen to your opinion and work with you. The hardest part of the job is also the best part of your job, the passengers most passengers are very pleasant, friendly and cooperative which makes it easier to do your job. On the other hand there are the few that are harder to deal with and that can be a little stressful, however we are taught to be cordial to all our passengers.
The City of Albuquerque in specifically therapeutic recreation was the greatest series of job experiences that I have ever had, the children that I was to be constantly looking over felt nothing like a burden, but more like a miracle to watch as young people are serve as a source of intrigue, it's always fun to think the places they'll go based on their talents and what they'll do when they're your age.
Really fun, swimming, talent show, several activites
MCO (Current Employee) – Albuquerque – July 22, 2018
I work here now the hours are horrible I go in at 5am until 10:30pm there is no life and to deal with the trash customers who board the bus is horrible for only $13.07 is not worth it and don’t recommend this place to anyone listen to the reviews or regret it like I did
Transit Support Representative (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – June 20, 2018
i work in transit and it is the worst place in the city to work. The city really needs to look at the department and ask there employess how they can make it a better place to work. And keep great employees
Albuquerque (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – June 16, 2018
Great family working environment. Enjoy coming to work. Very little supervision in some departments and over supervised in other departments. Varies from department to department, but good overall career advancement. You just need to work at it on your own.
the city of Albuquerque Transit department is the red headed step child of the City. they don not take into account family life or emergencies and are quick to discipline in most cases, some mangers and supervisors are really great but the majority are terrible.
great benifits and pension after 30 years
terrible managemnet and work life balance is non existant
Transit Customer Service (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – May 15, 2018
No respect for employees, their families or their experience. You can be a great employee but it does not matter. You are expected to work 4 different departments for 13.15 an hour and then when you need any time off, even for appointments you are denied. Stay away, the main queen will make sure you feel like you are in prison
PARKS AND REC LEADER (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – April 15, 2018
This is a good starting place if you ever need that first job and have a busy schedule. They are willing to work with your schedule and the kids can make it an enjoyable work place. As a Parks and Rec Leader, I find is enjoyable, but at the same time the hardest part of the job comes with the kids. However I would recommend, but not good for those looking for more hours.
Great job because you are able to work with kids with disabilities and get to understand that side of the world. Learn patience with the kids and also learn how to have fun on a hot summer day with kids who look up to you in some way.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – January 26, 2018
This job was great if you are a high school or college student because they are wiling to work with your availability. ON the other hand, the bad thing about this job was that for cashiers, hours were limited. At most, I got about 5 hours per week. The workplace was friendly, and out-going. I was recommend this job for people who can work 2 hours or an hour a day.
