Lift van Driver (Former Employee) – Monroeville, PA – April 20, 2017
you get a manifest full of scheduled trips pick them up and drop them off in an appropriate time. use gps to find locations and addresses. use radio to be in contact with dispatch to help guide you with your runs.
A lot of hours
mandatory overtime/not knowing what time you work the next day until after 6pm
Driver/ Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 20, 2017
Upper management is unfair to employees. The hours can be too early for some. The vehicles need to be updated. too hot in summer and too cold in winter. Routes are too far apart when you are on another side of town.
Transit Control Operator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 18, 2017

Sometimes the job was challenging when clients would call very upset due to driver not arriving on time or missing there pick up time. I enjoyed assisting clients and making there day.

Lead Technician (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – April 14, 2017
When I started for the company I had zero bus experience. After only a year of time I had learned enough to be given a promotion to lead tech which meant I was basically in charge of 3 other talented technicians. Over the next 3 years or so I had learned even more about the bussing industry and all of my guys strengths and weaknesses.
Driver (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – April 13, 2017
Drive a bus transporting clients from their hotels to surrounding areas within a 5 mile radius. I learned to drive a bus and got certified through the company. Management could use some work on communication between drivers and supervisors. The hardest part of the job is when you were looking forward to your scheduled shift only to find they have changed your route or time with no advanced warning or question. The most enjoyable part of the job was the driving itself, I find it more pleasant than being behind a desk all day.
Systems Analyst II (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 13, 2017
As an application developer one needs time to crawl into the box to write complex code which takes a lot of concentration. The culture here permits very unsophisticated call center users to frequently interrupt developers with minor issues like resetting passwords, restarting computers/apps, basic computer usage etc.
Every request to take earned vacation results in push back and last minute approval or disapproval from management. After spending $3k on tickets and hotel vacation was declined. Proverbial straw that broke the back.
overall it was a good place to work with some friendly people and they allowed u to come to the office with any concerns with a open door policy.
Bus Operator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 11, 2017
overall it was a good place to work with some friendly people and they allowed u to come to the office with any concerns with a open door policy. OI believe that they should allow more training time for those who are not ready. I will work there again it was a very stable career I just didnt get enough time to get more confortable considering I never drove buses and I was also getting familiar with Phoenix Arizona.
