This was the second time for me working for a school bus company. This type of work is good for people who are parents of young children because you can bring them with you. I believe your children can be up to 6 yrs of age to travel with you? This was an amazing opportunity for myself when my kids were younger. BUT.. the one big BUT. The pay is LOW. - more ... And if your school has days off, so do you. There is a small way around that and that is to work with the Charters department. Now keep in mind most Charters your not able to bring your children with you.
This type of work is also good for people ... - less
ProsMonday to Friday work, good kids, staff were helpful.
ConsLOW pay, units are tired and brake down often, traffic can be crazy.
