About

If you are hoping to be hired as an accountant, engineer, or driver, you will need to pass interviews, assessments, and technical tests which evaluate your skills and personality. JobTestPrep can help you prepare for your pre-employment assessments with our Transportation Bundle, which includes study guides, practice tests, and full answer explanations.


 

What Is the Hiring Process for Transit Jobs?

  1. Apply online: Submit your resume and cover letter to the company's website. If you are applying for a driver position, you may have to provide details about your driver's license.
  2. Take assessments tests: These tests vary depending on the position for which you are applying, and they may include a mechanical reasoning test, a personality test, and a numerical reasoning test. 
  3. Complete an in-person interview: This interview will focus on your relevant work experience as well as your technical knowledge. For engineering positions, you will be asked about your knowledge of concepts related to your profession. The interviewers are trying to determine what are your strengths and weaknesses with relation to engineering. For driver positions, you may be asked situational questions about how you would interact with customers or about how you would act in road safety-related scenarios.
  4. Additional tests: You may be asked to take a drug test and complete a physical before a final job offer is made.


 

What Tests Will I Take?

Although the specific tests vary according to the job you are applying for as well as the employer, workers in public transportation may take any of the following tests:

  • Personality tests: These tests evaluate your personality according to a number of categories, such as honesty and conscientiousness. You will be presented with a list of statements and need to indicate to what degree you agree or disagree with each statement. It is important to answer questions honestly, but you must also be aware of how to present yourself in a positive light. Practicing for your personality test can help you understand what traits employers are looking for in their candidates and how to convey the right personality profile. 
  • Mechanical reasoning tests: These tests measure your aptitude for understanding and applying mechanical concepts. JobTestPrep offers simulated mechanical reasoning tests which closely resemble the real tests used by employers, allowing you to target your weaknesses and improve your score.
  • Numerical reasoning tests: These tests assess your ability to interpret and use numerical information in the form of equations, graphs, and tables. Since they often include concepts that you may not have seen in years, it's important to practice in order to achieve an optimal score. 

JobTestPrep's Public Transit Bundle includes practice materials for these tests and more.
