Okay place
Commercial Bus Driver/ Fueler (Former Employee), Fairfield, CAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: driving
Cons: trailer life
Aside from the stinky portable they have employees rest and relax in herds at a time. Or the wacky shifts you have to adjust to when you arent senority its a good place to earn a living.

As long as you stay focus on your responsibilities as a safe , professional driver; you can survive any negative work environments.
CDL Paratransit Driver (Current Employee), Alsip, ILJuly 8, 2014
Pros: working with the public.
Cons: i don't concentrate on the cons; unproductive time.
A typical day at work involves assisting persons with personal disabilities; seen and unseen. During my services I have maintained a sense of compassion and humility towards persons less fortunate than myself with necessary mobility. Management has to be reminded about on-going negative practices that may affect safe and productive relationship with – more... clients. Same thing applies to fellow employees. The hardest part of job is contacting dispatch when communication is crucial in regards to a client; possibly negative situation. – less

A workplace for the responsible
Driver (Current Employee), San Jose, CAJuly 6, 2014
My work day starts off with arriving at the home base office to receive my daily route which is downloaded from dispatch at start time. Once route is downloaded then I drive to the first stop to pick up the customer. The route usually consist anywhere from 10-15 pickups/drop-offs throughout a 7-7.5 hour workday.

I think so far what I've learned on – more... this job is to focus on your daily clientele and how to build a trusting relationship with them because it can't go a long way with them. – less

Drivers overworked, Small possibility of advancement into another position, poor management
Bus Operator (Current Employee), Fairfax, VAJuly 4, 2014
Pros: in the employee lounge was plenty of couches, pool tables, and large screen tv for the comfort of the drivers.
Cons: short breaks, no retirement plan, had to work a year before earning paid time off
The company often ignored the Virginia Department of Transportation policy on drivers work hours of operator, I often worked more than fifteen hours days without adequate breaks in between shifts. The other drivers were always friendly however the management team was unable to communicate properly with drivers and each other. Their benefit plan was – more... poor and was not a motivation for employees to stay with the company long term. There was also favoritism in the company so when drivers didn't always receive equal punishment for the same offense and was known for some punishments not being appropriate for the action. – less

Pride in what we do
Dispatcher/Driver (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 4, 2014
Pros: safety bonus $200, referral bonus $50, empoloyee appreciation day
Cons: healthcare
A typical day at MV Transportation requires a high demand of safety, patience, and good communication. As a dispatcher you must display good work ethics, ability to multi task in a fast paced environment and be a strong team player. As a driver we work a shift from 11-13hrs a day therefore your rest is mandatory to perform all duties safe. Driving requires – more... skills and weeks of training to assist client in wheel chairs, scooters, walkers, language barriers, ect. The job is not hard at the end of the day I feel most rewarded knowing that I was able to assist someone and they being happy with my service. – less

Poor morale with a very high turnover rate
Call Center Dispatcher (Current Employee), Hyattsville, MDJune 23, 2014
Pros: nothing comes to mind besides trying to assist my disable customers
Cons: no sick leave or good medical benefits
Employees are underpaid and not valued while management staff responded all of the benefits. You can get fired for yawning during a call even if it was unintentional. If the public only knew how this COMPANY operated...they probably would be out if business.

Not a good place to work!
BUS DRIVER (Former Employee), Coon Rapids, MNJune 9, 2014
Pros: you get to be outside.
Cons: all the rest.
The company does not back it's employees.
The Union Rep. is "under the thumb" of management"-useless in any arbitration.
Rules are as they see them and confusion starts with 2-3 different descriptions of what is meant by Met Counsel, Management, Trainers, drivers, and then there's the PUBLIC!
Unorganized, cheap with the pay for what is done; especially – more... for the Dial a Ride drivers.
They are always hurting for drivers and they give an incentive of $500.00/$750.00 to get anyone in there. This still doesn't work because of the other things going on. – less

Operation Manager (Current Employee), Santa Clarita, CAJune 2, 2014
Pros: great management team
Cons: location, more than 75 miles on way each day.
My typical day begin at 4:00 am before the first driver leave the yard to begin his route and end about 4:00 pm, the hardest part of the job is dealing with so many different personalities each day, I manage about 300 drivers and try to treat every employee as equal, overall I love what I do and look forward going to work every day.

Limited advancement
Mechanic (Current Employee), Irvine, CAMay 19, 2014
Pros: entry level opportunity
Cons: heath care and wages
As a mechanic the opportunity to advance is limited. If you are a upper level mechanic the only advancement is to go into the office.I have over 20 years experience as a mechanic and enjoy and like working on floor, but with little advancement opportunity I find the need to look for a company that values the skills of a mechanic that can keep there – more... equipment up and running. – less
