    I have been working at London Underground full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Structured working environment, follow the rules and the job is easy. Good salary and benefits. Full uniform provided including footwear. Generous time off.

    Cons

    Employees/colleagues who have never done anything else and so don't appreciate what they've got. Poor standard across managerial grades who wouldn't survive in a commercial environment. Incompetence rewarded by promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Promote staff according to their on the job proven abilities and not just because they're good at blagging their way through interviews.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at London Underground (London, England) in June 2014.

    Interview

    London Underground / Transport for London use a lot of contractors across the business. I was hired by an agency and for a role with an immediate vacancy. An initial interview with the agency, followed by an interview by the recruiting manager. The total contract was 6 months and it was asked to be extended but I declined as had another role to go to.
