Long hours with split shifts.
Bus Driver (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 20, 2016
Job security/advancement is great. Scheduling is horrible. The hours are long with constant split shifts. Shifts rotate on a 24 hour basis. Meaning you will be clocking in at 3am somedays and other days 7pm. Regular schedules are available but are easy to loose due to low seniority ranking. Pay is not good. Benefits are almost great. Co-workers are good.
Pros
Stability, job advancement
Cons
Pay, scheduling

Fun but stressful at times for a Bus Operator.
Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 9, 2013
Driving in L.A can very interesting or stressful depending on the part. The job humbles you as you work with different personalities The management okay long as you stay away from trouble like (accidents or passenger complaints). The co-workers there are like family, I loved them. The hardest part of the day was being into an not-at-fault accident because metro will still try to blame you.

Steady reliable work
Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 12, 2013
Operating a bus is not just driving, it is conflict resolution,vehicle operations and effective communication. You are the face of the corporation. Dealing with every individual who comes through those doors can be frustrating and rewarding, but generally not at the same time.
