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
Pros: out driving, working with special needs kids
Cons: lack of hours and pay
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 – more... job is the bickering and complaining by some employees but try to avoid it. – less

Pros: allowed time off for appointments; felxible hours
Cons: non competitive wages for employees
I have learned so much while working at A & E Transport / Durham School Services. I have enhanced my skills on a daily basis and have learned how to multi task and be ready for whatever comes my way. Co-workers have seen that I can accomplish much and know they can ask me for assitance to get any task completed. I am always willing to go above the expectations – more... to complete a job well. My favorite part of working at Durham is the occassional break from the office to transport the kids to/from school. – less
Overall, it is okay for a retiree and/or part-timer

I am back-up driver for routes that not covered to to driver absence. The toughest part of the job is that it is a safety sensitive job that requires good management skills with all grade school aged children and as well capable of navigating through a tough roadway environment. Coworker relations are great and I am well known and respected by both – more... drivers and upper management. – less
