It's not worth it, unless youre retired and really have nothing better to do.
Driver (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – 10 May 2018
I've worked for Durham for 6 months and I've seen enough. Management DOES NOT care about you. You are a driver to them, you fill a spot, that's it. Your child is sick? It's okay, bring them on the bus with you. You have kids fighting on your bus? Oh, okay, does that mean you need police?
The things that should come along with a common sense answer, don't. You have to spell everything out, WORD FOR WORD.
I worked in Topeka, and the way it was is - One driver ran a stop sign and had an accident. This caused all of Topeka to hate the company. So it was Topeka vs Drivers, on top of Admin vs. Drivers. Even the school district gave up on helping the drivers completely.
You get paid for 4 hours per day, that's it. Yes, you can volunteer for trips and such, but that's only so often.
When a kid does something wrong on your bus, they are supposed to be written up. So you write this child up, give it to the school..... NOTHING HAPPENS. So the behavior continues. Its a never ending cycle. So when you decide to complain to Durham about the problem, they ask, well did you write them up? Yes. "Well that's all we can do for now."
DEFINATELY do not do it if you live outside of the city!!!! You will not make ANY money out of it.
