great place to make a lot of money.
Written by Operator (Current Employee) from Philadelphia County, PA on June 14, 2019
Septa is a great job if your looking to make a lot of money. But it is also a stressful job, dealing wit the public and not seeing your much. the hours are all over the place in your first couple of years. But they have supportive management and supportive coworkers.
