MTS Job: Is It Better?
Since we are also informing our visitors about bank exams & other govt sector exams, many of you keep asking – “Are SSC MTS jobs good?”
The duties of multi tasking staff in govt offices is entirely different from the job profile of officers / clerks in banks or any other central govt post.Hence comparing MTS with these sectors are just a waste of time.
While the minimum education to become a MTS is only a pass in std.X exam, candidates with BE/ Btech/ MBA degree may find it awkward to work as MTS considering the type of duties they need to do everyday, such as carrying files, taking photocopies, cleaning furniture etc.,
But if you feel comfortable in a central govt job & can handle or perform the above mentioned activities, then you may very well apply.
So whatever be the job, know everything about it in advance, decide for yourself & be ready to adapt to the situations.
