How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at First Student? What are the steps along the way?
It all depends on the role you’re applying for. Locational hires take 1-2 interviews.
If a bus driving/dispatch role, after interviewed (and accepted) their team will provide adequate training (FS is the highest mandated in safety and you’ll receive the most qualified training, superior to most companies in the industry). This takes 40 hours of in-class training and on-location road tests. Once you pass qualifications you’ll be assigned a route.
If management: you’ll be required to pass up to 6 interviews (both telephone and in-person).
You work outside and all kinds of weather you think your weekends off off for snow days the pay is good
