Trainer/Supervisor (Former Employee) – 421 Osborne – 30 June 2018
I worked at Transit for 27 years. To enjoy the job you have to learn to just drive safe and be friendly. The scheduled time on a route are a guideline. Many factors interfere with being on time. A driver must relax,be composed and friendly under trying circumstances. I loved working here. Great coworkers. Loved interaction with 99% of the public. The 1% can create issues. Generally very supportive management. At least when I was there. The training used to be top notch. Friendly,relaxed, supportive. Split shifts take getting used to. But u can make them work to your benefit. If u like to drive and enjoy meeting all sorts of people I say go for it. Retire with a good pension and benefits. I loved it there.
Not stuck in an office. Meet interesting people
A very small percentage of the public, u can't please.
I worked in a drop in centre with Inner-City youth, but there wasn't much for us to do with them other than supervise. Most of the time the youth are either shooting hoops, watching a movie or just lounging around.
