Pros: nearly impossible to get fired.
Cons: nearly impossible to get fired.
If you want to work for a company where it is nearly impossible to get fired then GDRTA is for you. If you want real advancement opportunities and good pay you should look elsewhere.
Salaried employees are expected to work at anytime the authority needs then are expected to take ETO (earned time off) for every minute they are not working. Every other company I have worked for gave salaried employees at least some flexibility in comp time, time (hours not days) off for appointments, etc.
Overall, the benefits package is a little better than standard packages in Dayton. The flexible schedule is very nice if you can get it. I scheduled 40 hours/week and had one afternoon off every week.
If you are not directly involved with driving or maintaining buses you are largely treated poorly.
