Not Worth the Time
Driver (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 March 2018
If your not one of the "favorites" you will get the worst routes and charters. Not worth the time for the pay. They tell you it is $17/hour, not true, you will be cleaning snow and doing your circle check for longer and to get out of the crowded lot, you will need to move buses out of your way. The time they calculate for your route is grossly underestimated. If your in traffic its your problem they set the pay based on what the route time will be in no traffic. The benefits is equal to none. Management is a joke. The parking lot is crowded and their expectations for the pay is ridiculous. Come on your own time to clean snow for an hour and move buses blocking your bus to go on your route. Go to Swiss, better working conditions, better buses, and great culture!
