Working at MV Transportation was fun and interesting, however schedules and lack of driver appreciation were huge flaws.
Pros: get to drive and explore the city, the gratitude given from the passengers is rewarding
Cons: No breaks/lunch on many occasions, no set schedules, pay is low, very limited incentive plan
MV Transportation was a paratransit service provided for passengers with disabilities. The job itself was fun in which we would greet, assist and secure passengers then transport them to their scheduled destination. In this job, I learned the importance of safety and how important it is to appreciate what one would call every day activities, as well as to show humility. The management team were very courteous and professional and would go out of their way to assist their workers as best they can. The other drivers and road supervisors are good, positive people to work with, however the dispatch department did not quite understand the difficulties that the drivers faced on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was a tie between the schedules, not knowing what times you were going to go in and get out of work, and the fact that on any given day, more often than not, our routes were altered to where our schedule was extended to 12 straight hours without any type break or lunch which would cause fatigue making the job a bit hazardous. The most enjoyable part of the job was the appreciation the passengers showed for not only transporting them but for treating them professionally but with dignity and respect.
