I'm fairly new here ...so my opinion is unbiased. if you just need a ok paycheck or you buying time until you get a call back from an interview or city test , then you take this gig.i decided to come to MV when i heard there would be a lot of overtime work. i only intend to be here a 4 months tops.
if you're a peoples person , you will be able to tolerate the job. you'll get some good passengers, you'll get some bad ones.
the dispatchers is where my problem lies. they have no real clue about driving much less traffic and rush hour congestion .then there are times where they are constantly changing your route pick ups on the fly from your original routes, taking you out of your on time flow and giving you additional paperwork to write up.
i hate paperwork,especially when you have to fall behind on it to make your pick ups on time (securing wheelchairs/scooters in the vehicle and all).
the company's GPS system is outdated,flawed , inaccurate and unclear a lot of times. if will take you the longest way , if will tell you to make a turn after you missed it and ir will tell you you reaches your destination almost a block away ..... GET THAT UPGRADE MV
coworkers are friendly and i like working unsupervised for the most part. the are "road supervisors" in a separate vehicle that will monitor a pick up once in a while , but do as you were trained and you'll be fine.
ps i have no wife and kids .... so i'm not complaining about the lack of a social life. but i can say where the problem would come in if you ended up with the wrong schedule.
Getting familiar with the driving around the city, get overtime if you need some extra
constant route changes, compromising breaks to keep schedule, barely adequate pay
