The CTA is a great place to work and is a fast pace. The group works as a team and is somewhat like a family environment.
Controller/Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 23, 2018
I really enjoyed working at Chicago Transit Authority. I was employee of the month 3 months in a row. Although periodically it is a high stress environment i was able to positively channel the stress and remain productive. An example was when i had a fire in the subway with a train with over a thousand passengers aboard and was able to get the train to the previous station and evacuate safely. The next day the operator involved called me thanked me for remaining calm and professional which helped her remain calm. Ultimately i got an opportunity to pursue a dream to open a business and returned to St Louis.
