This was actually one of my best jobs I had. I can say I did love coming to work everyday. I was outside everyday. Driving a paratransit bus. And getting to meet many different and interesting people. Management was actually horrible. They made coming to work really bad. But I managed. Because there were many needy people out there that I took care of on a daily basis. Who looked forward to seeing me. And counting on me to get them somewhere safe.

The management it is to tough on employees, they have no people skills but the job itself its great!! Love working with the public. For what we have to do the people are just great and Coworkers struggle to stay.

Hart is a decent company to work for as a whole. the company does need some work on the management structure as a whole. when you have a problem and follow your chain of command you almost never see action done. the management structure in the company needs to change in order for the company will be worth staying. other than that hart is a good company to work for. its a union job with great benefits. if i had the chance i would go back there and recommend it to people.
pool tables, computers, periods of extreme work and time of alot of free time

Managers are overpaided, over 90,000 yearly, while bus drivers start with 12.00 hr. No lunch breaks are given for drivers even if they are scheduled to drive 10 hrs, supervisors aND dispatchers are lazy, they spent all day Checking youtube videos and netflix instead of making routes more efficient.

I am not just a number at Hart. They are very connected to their contractors and the services they provide to their clients. Hart provides medical, dental and vision benefits, as well as life insurance.
Productive and fun atmosphere. Enjoyed driving every day

This company prides itself on making sure transportation is a close to on time as possible. The only reason why I'm not still there now is because I had to have emergency surgery and it was within the first year so was not able to file for FMLA to secure my position. I truly enjoyed working as bus operator and meeting so many new people every day.
Medical Front Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – March 6, 2015
My typical day at work was very busy. It really put my multi-tasking skills to the test. I learned a lot in the medical field that I was not aware of before. The EMR software was easy to navigate and the process of referring a patient to a specialist was time consuming. Dr. Hart was a very good and patient teacher. I learned a lot from her about medical insurance, i.e. co-pay vs. deductible, what's acceptable and what's not acceptable.
The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing with the patients. I really enjoy working with the public. Some of our patients could be difficult, but with patience, I was able to meet their needs. But most of our patients were absolute sweethearts to deal with. I miss not being in the office where I was my happiest with this job.
But Dr. Hart is giving me the opportunity to learn Medical Billing first hand and that is really what I went to school for. So I'm grateful for that.
Good work environment, great patients to deal with, busy office (which I loved)

Day to day job is the same ,challenges are different daily depending on weather conditions, time of week, work force availability. Mondays & Fridays can be more demanding as work force may call off for extended weekends. My day would start with a 0330 report short drive to Terminal to open for arriving outbound routes. Often times I would have to check fareboxes for electrical issues or transfer machine problems, wheelchair securement issues that may've been overlooked by operators. Verify and confirm conditions of bodies for damage that were not visible when operator conducted pretrip inspections under poorly lit conditions. Answer patron inquiries, trip plan, reschedule late routes etc. Periodically I would have to conduct an accident investigation in my zone, also construct detours when needed. I 've handled Customer Service complaints by interacting with operators named in the perceived offences. Work with local law enforcement in all facets of street operations as it relates to transit including Homeland Security. I've learned to lead by example my peers & subordinates. Generally coworkers share my ideals to get the job done safely and collectively we share that we're underpaid for what we provide to the community. The hardest part of the job is not being recognized for the effort that's expended by most superiors. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting it done without necessarily having all the tools to do it and or bending the rules to get it done.
Bridging gaps facilitating needs throughout company & community.
Over all good place to work. Distance and work day very long
Para Transit Driver (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 9, 2014
A typical day at work was gratifying. work place was comfortable, break room had two pool tables and vending machine,2 microwaves. Good co-workers, hardest part of job was the batching of manifests never made much sense, lack of vehicles. The most enjoyable part of the day was completing a manifest getting everyone to where they needed to be on time and going home gratified you did a good days work.
