wonderful to see the bright young faces of our future each and everyday TWICE. being with this company afforded me to be a mother and provider to my family while we were all flourishing together in the good and bad times of our lives. i have enjoyed meeting new people who also share the professionalism and enjoyment of driving and being around kids, parents and schools
could bring own children with, free time during day and evenings
children who do not follow the rules, impatient drivers, hard to advance

This company is a good place to work if you have small children. You are able to take them to work with you and if they are in school they will get transportation to their school. It is nice for the homemaker because they will be off work when the children are out of school which is a HUGE benefit for some parents. The people are real nice and they try to work with you if at all possible.
Great for parents that need to be with their children

Working at Durham School Services was an enjoyable experience. I loved my co workers and the extensive training. The most enjoyable part about working there is that the staff in the corporate office was always willing to help.
Helpful company that will work with you to make sure you succeed in being a safe driver and help you get your cdl class B.

Great place for part time work, not many options for the hours i would like. Friendly environment, and great staff. Family friendly company and will allow you to have your children ride along with you if needed.

enjoyed my kids and had a great relationship with them, along with the parents and bus driver. the kids got a little loud and out of hands at times, but we worked together on keeping inside voices on the ride home.

The reward of seeing a child smile, and hearing all the kids sing their favorite song at the moment, while picking them up from home and school. I learned you need to be very patient especially with special needs and how to manage a situation when the student is having a bad day. Always be positive, and have a smile on your face no matter what you are going through, don't want a child to see you unhappy it would throw off their happy vibe and you might make them feel worse if they are not having a good day. My co-workers are very down to earth, and I enjoy how professional my job is, and always trying to do fundraisers and help people that are in need.

Being an employee at Durham has been a fun experience. I enjoy working with many different types of personalities and learned a lot from encountering children who all came from different backgrounds. This job taught me to be more patient and understanding. It taught me how to handle many uncomfortable situations, and to do it with a good, positive attitude. The most enjoyable part of this job to me was being able to make my students look forward for the ride to school, which can be the worst part of the day for some of them. I also benefited when i was able to help a student through something they were struggling with, sometimes just being there to listen to what they had to say is very appreciated by them. The hardest part of the job was having parents who were unhappy with something that may have happened on the bus or at school when it was completely out of my control.I just do the best i can to deal with whatever they may need with the best attitude i can have and staying professional no matter how frustrating the situation may be. For the most part, I enjoyed the majority of the people i worked with. There will always be someone the workplace that you may not agree with however, keeping a professional demeanor is important. Management was great at Durham. They showed appreciation of their employees and gave praise when and where it was needed. Overall, working here was a very positive experience for me.
Aid / monitor (Former Employee) – Milton, FL – March 10, 2015
I was a long term employee with Durham. I loved working there and with the children and parents. I was able to do what I loved and take care of my family. I was able to do a morning run and an afternoon run and have time to do stuff between.
I love working with the special needs kids and I love being out driving a bus as well.
Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Dundee, IL – October 9, 2014
It is a challenging and fun place to work. It is fun and exciting to be outside driving around and dealing with the weather, traffic and students on a daily basis. I especially enjoy working with the special needs students since my son is special needs also.
Most co-workers are great and I enjoy working as a team with my aide. The hardest part of the job is the bickering and complaining by some employees but try to avoid it.
