The Job was great! The Company......
Driver, Trainer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 January 2019
I enjoyed the Driving, and my passengers were Fabulous!
First Group PLC/ First Student in Calgary is a Big Fleet of different sizes, and types of Buses! They own Many Transportation companies (Greyhound for example). The work environment is stressful! Bus Break-downs are frequent (Oddly most of the problems are with the over-engineered newer Buses). Routes are scheduled to the minute. A driver is wading through: Government Red Tape, Zonar pre & post-trip, sketchy Zonar Sign-out signal communication to base, Log-books, Mandatory Courses, Lack of Equipment (Various issues), Drug Testing, Inspections, Meetings, Lots of Time off, causing large gaps in your pay! It was a ongoing Enigma..
When you could get out on the Job, it was Fun! Daily Pay was good.
Big Gaps in Pay, 100's of Busses booked off with issues, Stress.
