Transit Driver (Former Employee), Redmond, WAAugust 25, 2015
My job at MV was to transport Microsoft employees to work, follow DOT state laws; give excellent customer service and to follow my run-card. But at the same time i also had to make sure i could think on my feet.

Horrible Management
Management (Former Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Pay
Cons: Bad Management
Apply for this company at your own risk. Horrible Upper Management. Work environment is not great. People playing dominoes in the break area and are loud an noisy not your corporate environment. The GM is a Dictator (his way or no way). Hostile work place. Lots of Politics between this company and the sub-contractor ( DART).

Dispatcher/ Bus Driver (Former Employee), Tucson, AZAugust 18, 2015
Pros: Flexible Schedule
Cons: Buses with mechanical issues.
Manager was always willing to help. I started as a driver and was promoted to dispatcher where I learned even learned more. Co-workers were always respectful. The hardest part of the job was, trying to cover the routes with buses with buses that had mechanical issues. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I knew every day I was going to be learning something new. I really enjoyed working for this company.

Good Professional environment to be driving on the Microsoft Campus
Driver (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAJuly 18, 2015
I had an enjoyable time supporting transportation operations and driving Microsoft employees around campus. You were able to not only perform your duties for MV Transportation but being in and around Microsoft I learned more about the company and some of the projects they are working on there. I use their products and know many people that work at Microsoft.

MV Transportation
Professional Driver (Former Employee), Alsip, ILJuly 16, 2015
MV Transportation was poorly ran and the dispatchers where allowed the freedom to give your routes to others and not replace them at all. Fairness did not exist within this job.

Fast paced environment
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Donora, PAJuly 10, 2015
The public transportation field is a fast paced environment.that runs 24/7. Although very rewarding working with the client, operators,and customers it can also be stressful. I was able to learn the payroll system, responsible for entering daily hours and mileage for each run which I truly enjoyed.

worst job experience i've had
Para-Transit Operator (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 9, 2015
If there is a gap of 2 hrs or more between dropping someone off and your next pick up, you will not be paid for that gap.
Septa (who the dispatchers work for) use this and other method as a way to cut corners.

Very high turn over rate for a reason.

And hope you don't get injured on the job. The attitude toward people assigned to light duty, after being seen by their doctors, is that they are faking. At least it was for me.

I will say that some days it ran so smooth that I couldn't believe I got paid to do it. Other days were so bad it felt as if they couldn't pay me enough. Unfortunately it was more of the latter.
