Road Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – 29 February 2016
Enjoyed relationships with drivers and being able to assist them during my shift. I learned how not to take situations personal. Learned how to be more patient. Management was like a family. Hardest part of job was sitting. The most enjoyable part of job was helping employees grow to their full potential
Working with passengers with disabilities was somewhat challenging in the beginning however after understanding the importance of providing reliable and safe transportation for the customers made the transition pretty easy.
Safety Supervisor and Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Petaluma, CA – 18 September 2017
MV Transportation is a company that tires to do the right thing to provide service to the public but they lack the follow through on programs.
As a Safety and Training Supervisor my day would start at about 12:30 PM and go till 9:00 PM. I am involved in driving buses as needed and I dispatch. At times I do training for new employees and other staff
Bus Aide/Driver (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 18 September 2017
At mv transportation they helped me get my class b license and passanger endorsments. Pay wasnt so great but just the fact that the passangers/clients where so loving and too kind I was sad when I left.
Great job if you can work independently and be consistant.
Transit Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Visalia, CA – 16 September 2017
I usually come to work ready to do my job. I know there is drama among some of the drivers versus management, but I don't care to get involved in it nor listen to it. I think a certain amount of this exists in all companies. Although favoritism is a big issue and I am not part of that, it is not right that it is there. The hardest part of the job is when your bus doesn't work right or you're way behind schedule and the Dispatcher tells you to just roll and do your best. We are not suddenly going to do our worst, but they need to know how to help us out there on our routes. The most enjoyable part of the job is relating to other drivers as well as helping out the passengers. I enjoy driving a 35 or 40 foot bus.
Road Supervisor (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – 15 September 2017
I came here to expand my knowledge in my field and did just that. You will definitely learn a lot, if you a are willing to. Lots of hands on training that you can take with you on your next venture in your career. Not the best pay though. If you are doing your job, and seeking guidance when needed, you will have no issues.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – 12 September 2017
A typical day at work was just fine. I had to deal with clients and passengers on a personal basis. Plus dealing with drivers and office staff on an ongoing basis daily. I was also responsible for anything that was cause for the alarm going off. Sometimes meeting up with the police or fire department at all hours.
My biggest issue was dealing with the cell phone use.
Driver, customer service- sales route (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – 12 September 2017
good company stable career. I experienced a very lengthly and through training program, their is a lot of mismanaging going on due to a new contract with NCTD. But if you push through it all and get a fixed route its a great career opportunity, employees are all friendly.
Driver/safety trainer (Former Employee) – Melrose Park, IL – 9 September 2017
This job had great pay and a family oriented environment and the freedom to eat lunch whenever And they help the disable and people with disability to get to their various destination s which made me working long hours worth it
Work place was stressful , but the company had good people working for them.
DRIVER (Current Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – 5 September 2017
MV Transportation was very stressful, easy to get fired, management was you could not trust. Overall I guess for me it was a tough place to work, constantly in fear of what your end of the day would be like. A lot of people are fired at the end of their shift. It was a job that I found very difficult.
I got a review @ the end of each year and my company reviews were very good. To get good reviews from a company like MV is really hard.
They really gve good lunches for their employees.
The benefits the I carried with the company was really good. I didn't take the medical part.
