its a great place to work, I honestly had gained so much skills from working at First Student Inc. One of the most wonderful things about working here was communicating with the children they always brightened up my day!

This company does incredible training. The supply and give the education that they need. However it is not a 4 hour a day job and maintenance on the busses took a lot of time. The children were fantastic on my bus.
Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 December 2016
If you get a bus that starts in the morning, your very lucky. If the bus makes it through the run picking up the children and taking them to their schools, your very lucky again. First Calgary Alberta is the only province that can keep the buses on the road after they are 10 years old. All other provinces get rid of buses at the 10 year mark. We get Ontario's old buses and old buses from California as well, that do not even have heaters in them. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing all the sweet children. The hardest part of the job is getting a bus that doesn't give you any trouble.
Drive for the road conditions, get there when you get there.
