Hmmm... lets see - 20 minutes to go from base to your first stop is unpaid. The 20 minutes it takes to go from your last school to base is unpaid. In the afternoon, the 15 minutes it takes to go to your first school is unpaid and the time it takes you to drive back to base in rush hour traffic is 20 or more minutes UNPAID. They rely on Google Maps to make time determinations knowing that it's un-calculated time based on empty roads, no traffic lights, no stop signs, no trains, no accidents, etc, etc. So it's at LEAST 1.25 HOURS OF WORK that goes unpaid. THEN there's their "ongoing safety hours" training that, you guessed it, goes unpaid. So there's another 10 hours of unpaid work. If you take the real hours you're working for Elliot and divide it by their $52.00 for up to 150 minutes of driving, that's $9.45/hour. THAT'S why they can't keep people. You are paid from first pick up to last drop off and there's nothing for bringing that bus back, so basically, buses should be left at their last point of drop off, don't you think?


You just need to be breathing.


This is the most important question. No, you do not get paid. You are also chained to them for a year because their "free training" is not free. Once you pass your test, THEN then tell you that you are contracted to them for a FULL year and if you try to leave, you must pay them $2,000 in training fees. This is a terrible company to work for. If you refuse to work the full year, they will threaten you with court to get their money.


Ok, objectively, if you live in Elmira or Breslau, it's close. You have to like kids but lack of support will make you question that decision.
