I cannot think of a better job I have had in my lifetime
full-time transit operator, Strathcona Country (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – March 27, 2015
I will submit a suggestion to management to bring in a table tennis I have never worked in a more highly organised, safety-minded operation as Strathcona County. The work culture is cohesive as bus drivers work changing shifts. This creates a supporting and caring work environment.
I find our passengers are largely understanding and the moments of gratitude I receive from taking the time to do a 360 look for any late runners, makes my day. My office is my mirror and windows and is always changing and in motion.
The challenge of course in shift work. One must rise early to work a few hours, then to be active in fitness, eat well, and return in the late afternoon for a final few hours of work.
No lunch breaks, drivers much take care to drink plenty of water
It would be a safety danger to work too many hours putting other motorists and passengers at risk.
