Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, commonly referred to as Metro, is a tri-jurisdictional government agency that operates transit service in the Washington metropolitan area.
As a leader in the transportation industry, Metro strives to attract and retain top-quality staff to ensure high-quality service to our customers. One way Metro achieves this goal is by providing a worklife that fosters the motivation and enthusiasm necessary to succeed. If you're looking for job satisfaction, excellent benefits, and professional development, Metro is where you want to be.
Since 2012, Metro has increased the size of its military veteran employee base by nearly 50 percent. Military candidates have been hired and trained for career opportunities as transit police officers, mechanics, bus and rail operators, human resources specialists, information technology professionals, and more.
Metro aggressively seeks to hire and retain top-quality military veteran candidates, and finds that hiring from the military community lends a strategic competitive advantage to advancing our goals. Metro has adopted a fully-integrated military recruitment strategy to enhance its military recruitment efforts. As part of that effort, Metro is engaged in regular employment presentations and info sessions on military bases, participates in Job Readiness Workshops with the Department of Labor Veteran Employment Services, and promotes career opportunities for military spouses as a standard component of all military employment presentations and networking efforts.
