Great for stay at home moms
School Bus Driver (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON8 October 2013
It is a "part time" job that requires alot of increasing responsibility. Making part time money, no raises, no bonuses, no benefits, no pension, no future security.
People tend to get stuck working here even well after their little ones have grown and moved on because of the independence involved with being a school bus driver on the open road as opposed to being cooped up in an office with a boss breathing down your neck.
Pros
Get to be there for your family.
Cons
Don't make enough money to be there for your family.
