Durham will train you well to get CDL, your lean all Saftey procedures and DOT Saftey requirements. Once you get your CDL you'll be expected to overlook all Saftey requirements you learned. Most buses aren't safe to drive or in very poor condition. I would think twice before allowing young children to ride
Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Ames, IA – 11 March 2017
Mostly good equipment at this facility and an excellent mechanic. Office staff will look you right in the eye and lie to you. Favoritism rules when assigning routes and extra work such as school field trips etc.. A large portion of the workers have excessive and disgusting body odor for some reason.
You get to interact with the kids
Split shift sucks....some coworkers stink and have mental issues.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – 8 March 2017
Good place for new or young managers to work to gain experience in the logistics field. The biggest struggle is staffing. WIth a national shortage of qualified drivers it is always a struggle to find drivers.
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Keller, TX – 7 March 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is the students who ride your bus, getting to know them and hear their stories. Your day begins early with a pre-trip inspection of your bus. Then you go to your route to pick up the kids and take them to their campus. In the afternoon you repeat the morning procedures except to go to the campus to take the kids home. Management strength seems weak at times, and only those drivers who get close to management get opportunities to advance, and pick up the better field trips.
Bus Monitor (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – 25 February 2017
Management needs to work on their professionalism. It's a good company but it needs better organization.I enjoyed working for the company I just wished that they could have dealt with the false allegations that a coworker said I have done.
Great place to work in! Great people to work with! Good environment, kind people and very helpful. Teamwork is what they do! Always ready to learn and work in what ever is necessary and needs to be done gets done in a timely manner!
Driver (Current Employee) – Taylorville, IL – 14 February 2017
I have no monitor. I do love the kids I work with and the hours. There is a chance to take trips out on long periods or short ones. You can work weekends. You work a school schedule and claim unemployment on off time.
