Productive place to learn the transportation field
Mentor (Former Employee), Hyattsville MD – October 14, 2014
Pros: the people
A typical day at MV consist of reconciling drivers daily logs. Management did not create a friendly atmosphere for their workers. The most enjoyable part about the job was to see the people who worked in my office.
Former Bus Operator (Former Employee), Livermore, Ca – October 7, 2014
Pros: driving the buses
Cons: very low pay, no breaks, long splits, no communication, fraud
The "training" for MV started out long. They advertise they have Fulltime employment but you start out on the extra board as a part time employee on a fixed route. I finished training, I worked 10 hour days with no break. I decided to leave the company due to personal reasons. I asked to be transfered but the GM said I was new, and that I needed to – more... wait after my probation, on my last day of resignation he decided to transfer me at the last minute. I ended up deciding to stick to plan A and leave the company after all and haven't received my hard copy CDL yet. MV is a fraud. Every company that trains their employees for a CDL has to process paperwork correctly through DMV. I found out they were dropped from the ETP (Employment Training Program). I've been in constant contact with DMV and they said the company has not processed their routes so it looks as if I never even went through training. All those hours wasted. I think they purposely did that to me since I decided to leave and go with another company. I've tried calling MV HR, and they're located all the way in Texas, WTF? Never returns phone calls. They fraud driver training hours, they're liars. STAY AWAY. – less
Paratransit Driver (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – September 19, 2014
Pros: on your own
Cons: no breaks dispatch feel likes they can talk to you any kind on way
you work on your own. you do have dispatch if you run into any problems and a time limit to get there. most of the time you make it on time,but some times dispatch will add someone on to you and ask you why your running late. if you are use to breaks this is not a job for you. its physical job a lot of driving involved in this job. its a plus to know – more... your way around the city, you do have GPS but, sometimes they got down and you have to relied on a map book. The job deals with handicapped and elderly people. – less
bus driver (Current Employee), Carson ca – September 9, 2014
Pros: its a job
Cons: poor mgmt poor scheduling and very poor pay for what they put you through!
This is a horrible place to work if you rely on public transportation to get to work. Mgmt doesn't accommodate you at all on scheduling even when you tell them you have no way to get to work.don't work for this company if you have a second job have kids or don't have a car because MV transit in Carson ca . don't care!
