Pros: union, driving, knowing the city better, long breaks, sleep time
Cons: short breaks, 8 hour runs, being followed by a supervisor
this job is great for a great supportive family or single person with no young children that needs caring for. You may get lucky to get steady work. The work flow is not consistent but the pay is good. The extra board workers gets the benefit of having overtime and getting to know all of the routes better. Co-workers are fun and the Management is strict on safety and timing. I loved meeting new people and talking to them on a regular on my consistent routes. My favorite route was the crosstown 92 and the several of the express routes were fun and full of nice people.
