Its okay.
Assistant Administrative Analyst (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 13, 2017
Not a bad place to work for if you enjoy working for the public sector. You get medical and dental plus they will help you go back to school if you desire to do so. My one problem with this job is that you can get stuck in the position and advancement is hard if you don't have the boss or management team to help you advance.

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
