This job is okay if you want a job with no structure, challenge or advancement.
Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Gastonia, NC – June 2, 2017
It was a very stress-free atmosphere with very good benefits. The money is low for the responsibility but, you do not work hard. It is far from challenging and it really needs a little fine tuning. It is a small transit company so you build a good relationship with the customers and that is the enjoyable part of your day.
Break at end of line, 1 hour lunch on Saturday.
There is no structure so, therefore everyone is not treated the same. A lot of favoritism.
Financial Support Representative (Current Employee) – Gastonia, NC – September 7, 2016
Typically the work day will begin at 7:45 a.m. and open to the public at 5 p.m. . Throughout the business, we have high volume of calls and heavy foot traffic. I work with 9 other individuals in my department.
I've never loved a job more than working for the COG. I met and made so many friends there and I am still friends with to this day. They are helpful in training, encourage personal and professional growth and everyone is so kind. It was the best experience of my life!
Great hours, great pay, great people
Municipalities face budget cuts from time to time and sometimes that includes jobs
A typical day includes driving to different job sites with my crew and taking care of business at each place whether it be mowing it or planting trees or shrubbery. I've learned how to deal with the public and work with a team of men to get the job done. Supervision is great with understanding on all sides. My coworkers are very knowledgable and good to work with. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting the public and learning different jobs that we do in town.
Working outside, Meeting the public, making places beautiful..
