Good part time job, abysmally bad management
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 July 2017
If you are looking for a part time job that gives you time off in the middle of the day, being a school bus driver is great. It pays OK for the amount of hours you work and you always have weekends off as well as school holidays. You can drive charters on top of your school run to make a few extra bucks.
First Student in Calgary is a very poorly run company. The location managers don't really give a hoot about the drivers, they do not have your back and they do not support you. They are more concerned with looking good to their bosses. And when the employees don't feel like the company has their back, service levels go down. It's unfortunate, but it is business 101 (a class the management here never took - they are completely clueless as how to run a business and they are losing contracts because of it). The fleet is quite old and corners are being cut.
Free training, part time hours
poor management, old buses
