Great part time job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed working at Golden arrow part-time. The job is great but the pay is low. A typical day would involve waking up early, going to bus yard, do a pre-trip inspection, go pick up riders, drop them off, return to yard, go home. After a few hours you go back to yard to pick up riders and take them home. Best part of the job was driving the bus!

They take all problems seriously, big or small. Everyone is important. But not more important than others.

I learned to be independent at work. Solve the problems I could handle and reached out for help when it was needed. They advertise be your own boss and that is exactly what I learned to do. They say what they mean and mean what they say.


Good management, good work is recognized by the vise president, fare pay, extra hours, not required to work extra hours, respected, no prejudice, no racism, the list is endless.


Can't think of any.

No real raise in salary in thirteen years. $15/ hr in 2009 for extra work same as 2021

The management does not allow the drivers to succeed and there is no room for promotion. The drivers in the whole industry are under paid and over utilized. No recognition for good driving, but lots of paperwork and disciplining of students and making sure everyone is safe, and everyone is sitting, is a more difficult job than people think. You have you back to students and still must maintain behaviors, and watch the road.

Horrible management no pay increase run

Use and abuse . Never get a pay increase. Management is horrible save 2 people. You will always be just a driver . Safety is mismanaged trying to force driving an unsafe vehicle.

Prutuctive and great atmosphere

A lot of safety proticals. Easy going days at work with pleasant co-workers and passengers .No quariles with management. I found that they are very helpful and always willing to help and guide drivers to better themselves. The enjoyable part of the job was just about everything.

One needs to be able to take the noise level children can produce but maintain some sense of humor with flexibility.

I had worked with Golden Arrow a number of years before this. I left then because I could not make a living. This job is good for a couple where one has a better job or is semi-retired.

Cleaned inside of 53' tour sized work crew buses.

Buses came at various times of night for detail. Work was fun and okay but did not last long because supervisor quit. Buses came in dirty, dirty and went out clean, clean.

Will hire anyone off the street! No formal background checks except for driving record. Terrible pay, lowest amongst bus companies. No confidentiality, manager don’t care.

ok place to work

Part-time hours only available as piece work. Each piece work is set at a certain dollar amount. Often takes longer to complete the piece work without renumeration for extra time. Only suitable for someone wanting part-time and something to do.

easy wiork

taking your child to work while generating an income and avoiding childcare is great. the training is sub par at best and the overall feeling is a lot of politics

Inadequet pay for work required

This company does not factor into it's pay schedule the fact that you have to drive in TWICE a day for a job that's based on a 4 hour day. Your average day is at least 4 1/2 hrs. and you do not get pay for waiting for bus repairs(anything from signal bulbs to wheel re-torques) or washing time and there is no health plan or stat holiday pay.
