Yes.

Try doing a search for MBTA (without the periods) in the Masscops search page.

That used to be The Job to have, until a successive series of political Chiefs (after Bratton) ruined it. Until the T Police was made a seperate choice on the Civil Service list, they used to wait until the list was almost exhausted to send out cards, because they knew anyone near the top of the list would jump ship to a city or town, the first chance they got.

It's a real shame, because that could be (and in fact was) a great job.

Benefits there are not that good, good experience though if you want to go to another dept. later on. plenty of overtime and details if that is what you want.

They have a screwed-up railroad pension system that doesn't transfer to most other pension systems, and most of their details are only paid when the contractor pays, which could take years, if ever.

:-\" It sounds like somebody is blowing some smoke. Health and dental benefits are good. The retirement is great 23 years/ minimum age of 52 (It is a private pension not linked to the state and we get Social Security). Their are tons details and overtime and we get paid for them just as any other department (no long wait). A great job and one would be lucky to get a job on the Transit police.
