Professional Driver (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC15 February 2018
As a handyDart operator I engage with a variety of people with a variety of reasons for having to use handyDart service.
I have never had a bad day at work since joining handyDart First Transit. 99% of passengers are grateful for the service we provide and almost every ride you are made aware of that appreciation.
Safety is the most important aspect of our workplace and no bus goes out unless the operator is confident it is safe to do the job.
Even if you have had an incident management does not make you feel like less of a person but rather reinforces your positive skills and attributes and encourages you to do better.
This job is all about the attitude you bring to it day to day. Be honest and genuine and people will be grateful for the service you provide. In turn you will be happy at the end of the day because you have made a difference in a positive way for others that would not have been able to do what you did for them.
Pros
Good pay, regular hours, No overtime, guaranteed days off.
Cons
Takes a long time a get to a Full Time position.

Safety Oriented
Safety Inspector/Trainer (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON4 January 2016
Safety was the number one concern and everyone lived and breathed it. Had a great mentor in the training department. Learned you could change scheduling if you got everyone together and come up with a solution and make a year committment to try it. Co-workers were helpful. Most enjoyable part of the job was watching new trainees succeed in the transit operator program.
Pros
Working afternoons or mornings, Working longers hours to have more days off to have a Great Family/life balance.
Cons
Lossing the Transit Contract with York Region.
