I enjoyed interacting with the students that I picked up and drove from home to school. The workplace was enjoyable. Dealing with the driving of the general public was the hardest part of the job.

Interview process was simple enough. Given instructions to follow in order to meet requirements for training; MTO Medical, background checks, reading bus drivers handbook.

This company gives complete training, and you can expect a lot of good, valuable information.


Day to day work is routine, but emotionally rewarding. The biggest issues you can expect are traffic, and students who just wont listen to you.


The pay from this job is not great, and the hours worked make other part time jobs difficult to come by. But if the hours work and you do not need to rely on this job for income, it is very good.
Pros
Emotionally rewarding
