Safety and Customer Service First
Bus Driver (Current Employee) –  The Colony, TX5 January 2018
Typical work day consists of morning route taking students to school. Work time usually runs 2 hours in the morning and then off. However if you have a mid day shuttle or other route, those are usually two hours of work. Afternoon route consists of returning students to home running about two and a half hours.

The job is based on time constraints within a safely executed manner.

School Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CA4 January 2018
Durham paid a 7 hour wage no matter how many hours your bus route was. Because you had routes at different times of the day. Drive Special Needs Kids from home to the school.

Don't bother.
Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WA1 January 2018
This place should not have the contract to run a refrigerator let alone a city's school bus system. Poor, clueless, management who will blame you for their mistakes in their one way conversations. The job itself is alright. But the management sucks. Glad I left
Pros
You get a class b cdl
Cons
Clueless management

Typical Day Of Work
Bus Monitor (Former Employee) –  Carpentersville, IL27 December 2017
The Driver & Bus Monitor are the first people the children encounter before entering their schools. You always want to greet them by their first name. Make sure their seat belts are on properly and everyone is safe.
