The WMATA recruitment process includes:

Application: There are a few different options to complete the WMATA application process. You can apply online or with a recruiter. You must also give in your resume along with any other mandatory documents.

Telephone Interview: The WMATA phone interview is often brief and is used as an initial assessment to screen out unfitting applicants by evaluating their background.

In-Person Interview: Next, you will be invited to come in for face-to-face interviews, either held by one employee or a panel. WMATA interviews may also be held in a group setting.

Tests: WMATA aptitude tests are used as pre-employment assessments. These entrance exams give employers the ability to assess your cognitive abilities, personality traits, and skills.
