Not bad
It was a good job, good pay, good benefits and nice pension. I’ve worked there along time but some times it can become overwhelming because you’re dealing with the public.

Not worth it
Not worth working there. Management are looking for ways to fire or suspend you. Often they skip steps regardless of contract , too stressful and it effects your health as well as family

yes
yes we have ping pong tabkes. we have a a pool room. we have a pinball machine. some locations go on a fishing trip once a year. a good day at work is when u don,t get in any trouble. you must be dress properly and everything must have a septa patch on it. the hardis part of the job is dealing with the public. sometimes your coworkers can be a pain too. the best part of the job is break time lunch time and vacation time. a lot of things have change a lot since i left with manangement and the public.

They is no job security for single parents
Non flexible hours and a rigged point System. They utilize the fact that PA is an At Will State, and has terminated people for some very ludicrous reasons.

It’s a good job to have
Just stay focus, pay attention and be on time! Being on time is important. Knowing your job! And job title and rule book really helps! You can move up pretty quick in this company also

Good money..no life at all
You work 6 days a week, 70-90 hours a week..barely see your family or outside life, but there is money to be made if that’s what your looking for. Choose wisely..money or family ?

Great flexible position
This is great for flexibility in hours you give your availability and are scheduled accordingly. The supervisors are great so if you’re looking to supplement your income great but offer no benefits.

Management can care less about you
If you don’t have a family or a life this job is prefect for you. You start as a slate person that means you work all hours and days. As you progress in Seniority your schedule could get better or worst. That being said Septa does not cares about your personal life or your family. There Motto is come to work or get firer or you can quit as the management puts it. Also if something happens on your shift it’s your fallout and you will be let go or as the management puts it firer

Septa
I didn’t stay long enough to know how good septa is I was only there for a couple months because I didn’t know how to handle the vehicle, septa was only training me for five days and that wasn’t enough time for me

Good job with excellent benefits & pension .
Daily work day is very busy but structured ,in storekeeper job learn of new parts that are needed daily ,management is not the best ,most managers no real experence in this department, nepotism is a huge problem in Septa, no room for advancement in this department because of nepotism ,hardest part of job dealing with new supervisors with no knowledge or training to execute and fix much of anything.
Best part of job is knowing you are actually helping the public use mass transit because of your skills to get parts to fix buses on a tight daily scheudule,overall good job with weak management,could be so much better work enviroment .

Reactive not proactive
Let me start off by Saying_first Septa is a really good company to work for but the management is horrible they really don’t know how to manage people the track department is the worst department there is an Septa I would recommend nobody to work for the track department. Also here at Septa you’re only counted as a Account number and nothing else.I don’t think in the track department (city) they appreciate their workforce.
Pros
Great pay
Cons

It's a great company but it comes with a ton of challenges
Be on time for work and you will have a long career there. Do not run ahead of schedule and follow the rules of the company. Respect the passengers that ride and treat each and every person with respect and dignity.

Terrible place to work management was mean and cruel treated like a slave. Supervisors were rude and plotted against you if they didnt like you dispatchers would give you less hrs or a run that didnt psy as well if they didnt like. Trainers would give you a hard time for no reason.
