low pay and low hours
Router, dispatcher, driver (Former Employee), Des Plaines, ILApril 27, 2016
This company has a low rate of pay for the drivers. They do not have a lot of work, and hard to get a regular pay check. The employees are great but management has a lack of fairness.

Job was very rewarding
Bus Driver (Former Employee), Baldwin Park, CAMarch 24, 2016
A typical day at work was dropping off children with special needs to and from school. I loved that the job consisted of driving and being out and about. The best part of the job was learning how to work with children with special needs.

I was overworked and underpaid! The bosses were terrible people to work under and some of the dispatchers were nasty. I was happy to hear they went out of business.

being a special person to be a school bus driver
School Bus Driver (Current Employee), Charleston South CarlionaJanuary 31, 2016
I enjoyed working with Durham school services, I've been with them for eight years. I've watch many of my student become young adult finishing college getting excellent jobs, I feel that I was a part of that. i learned how to become a team player cause at the end of the day the student just need to get to school or home.The hardest part of the jobs are not having safe buses to drive, a lot of the buses are well of twenty years old.

Awesome hours
driver (Current Employee), Santa Ana, CAJanuary 20, 2016
Drivers job are only to make sure all hazards are safe and student arrive to school and to their homes safe. Management are mostly outsiders so they do not understand what drivers go through with their clients and school when needed assistant. Not so much social networking at work because people just arrive and go home as soon as possible once their shifts are over. The kids are special and are also funny depending on their condition.

Ummmm...
Bus Driver (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TNJanuary 20, 2016
Pros: get raises every year, only good if you have kids
Cons: winter & summer breaks, management, unemployemtn
I love driving but this job isn't for me ! This job is only if you have kids and aren't able to take your kids to school. They get you by saying they starting pay is $13.05/hr; which is good until you actually start working. You do not get over 30hrs, 27.5 at the most. So you might as well go work at Wal-Mart making $9.00 it end up being the same if you ask me. The managers have their picks at the job, you will only see a check if you get field trips, but working here if your not all in the manager face sucking up you will NOT see an field trip your whole time working. I don't like the Christmas or summer breaks you can file for unemployment(which isn't much or like me find an second job), no one wants to work 2 jobs just to keep up on bills. The list goes on !
