SCHOOL BUS DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 May 2018
You are responsible for bus after hire, to keep vehicle road ready.
The maintenance of the vehicle remains with the company.
If you have never driven a large bus before be assured you will be trained fully confident with the bus before being set loose.
Always remember your training, the height of the bus, the turning ratio, the stopping procedures, the awareness around you of other vehicles, your speed and the safety of the students.
Pros
Learn to drive something other than a car.
Cons
The pay is low, compared to the responsibility

School Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON9 May 2018
Company was an okay place to Work Management could be a little bit more compassionate with their co-workers.

Certain management staff could be changed and let go like I said it's a-okay company
