    Pros

    Discounts for Metro, good pay

    Cons

    Expect to cancel your planned PTO (doesn’t matter if you provided 2 months advance notice), be ready to cancel thanksgiving and Christmas, be ready to work weekends. Micromanaging at it’s worse! From CEO to mid level managers, totally unprofessional but pretend to be changing with the time.

    I have been working at Metrolink full-time

    Pros

    Great place to be work with much better neighboring companies

    Cons

    Employees who work hard and show up to work are overlooked. Employees who are lazy, ditch work, lie, etc. those employees are promoted because they are friends with management. There is severe nepotism/favoritism here. Managers/supervisors do very little work and they only want to promote sketchy people who will not disrupt this culture. HR supposedly got involved but all these horrible things continue to happen. Millions of tax/grant dollars are only being wasted
