OK for part-timers with no concern for the future
Most of the problems at Attridge are, in all fairness, probably beyond Attridge's control, but are indicative of the School Bus industry as a whole.
Until one can choose School Bus Driving as a career, rather than a part-time minimum-wage job, there will be no need to hire, and even no possibility of hiring, the best drivers on the road, to fill the positions available.
And until then, Attridge will not be in any position to weed out the truly deplorable drivers, and reward the good behaviour among their better drivers.
But due to the shortage of bus drivers available, Attridge must lower their standards. They also must cut corners wherever possible for their bottom line.
Some of the corners being cut include substandard training program(s) (trainers do not even have the slightest clue about rules of the road, ie Ontario Highway Traffic Act, etc), very little pay for the hardest-working and most professional drivers, and an absolutely abhorrent maintenance policy.
I will continue working here until I find a permanent full-time job in my chosen career.
