It is a good place to be
School Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 November 2013
A typical day at work would be pre-trip inspection, and call dispatch.
I learned so many things like how to put the kids safety first and what to do when an emergency occurs.
Management is good because they ave everything under control.
The hardest part of the job is that I had to deal with lots of children screaming, and then doing pre-trips in winter time.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that you only worked for 4 hours a day.
Pros
The vacations that the children get I also get them too.
Cons
No money to help pay rents and for food.
