Cleaner/Maintenance (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 12, 2017
Typically you sweep mop and drive daily. Unless you already know how to drive buses, that's all the knowledge you will gain from this position. Horrible management is very unfair and biased to power hungry supervisors. Hardest part of the job is dealing with the weather and supervisors. Best part of the job you get paid every week for doing a easy job. You wont move up unless you kiss a lot of butt and basically allow management to disrespect you. This is why im looking for something new. You dont want to work here, keep looking.
Very easy job, decent pay
There's no equality, No respect for employees, Horrible management

Property Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 26, 2015
A typical day at work for me consists of constant interaction with people. There's never a dull moment when working around great people who support the vision. My office has a revolving door, not to mention that I have an open door policy. Each day is filled with laughter and that's because of the people that I wok directly with.
I've been working at this building for over 5 years and I've developed a great deal of patience. The patience of a saint. I am the sounding board for over 1000 people, some pleasant, and some not- so-pleasant. Although I have patience, I also have a warm heart. It brings me joy to be apart of a community of people who take pride in where they live.
The hardest part of the job is having to let someone go from the job and putting someone out of their home. Overall I enjoy being apart of assisting people with a place to live and being apart of a dream achieved.
Working with level headed people
Dealing with people who don't have respect for authority.
start the new job from foreman direction,or to be continue same job ,need to finishfrom last shifts...try to helpfull workmate in the team to make job done as we can...I will listen and learning more on job...keep working place safe and clean....
Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 3, 2015
This is my first experience in a unionized job. One of the drawbacks of this experience is that, as a U.S. military veteran, I am exempt from the requirements of the current Federal Health Care law. However, as a condition of employment, I am required by the company to purchase health care that I don't use or need.
It is also a fact that as several unions represent employees of different divisions of this company, many of those employees receive higher pay and better benefits than the drivers/operators of said company. Arguably, the people who drive for this company are it's life's blood, yet we are employed in a capacity that is much more punitive and less compensated.
Livable wages, consistent training
Wages not commensurate with rigor of actual working conditions.
RAIL PROJECT COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Los Angeles – August 19, 2015
Work as Fire Department Liaison Officer for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority providing fire/life safety oversight for all Heavy and Light Rail projects in the City of Los Angeles.
I have been able to acquire a whole new code enforcement skill set for Fixed Guide way Transit and Passenger Rail Systems which has been a challenging and interesting departure from structural fire protection.
My co-workers are design builders, engineers, architects, law enforcement and first responder agencies as well as Metro Transit professionals.
The most difficult part of my job is providing fire/life safety oversight and code enforcement to very creative design-build transit projects whose major is to meet project deadlines well under budget projections.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the collaboration with multiple life safety agencies and the networking relationships I've established with working professionals
Administrative Intern (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 13, 2015
A normal day at work would include me entering data into the data base, answering incoming calls as well as making outgoing calls to other companies and verifying information. I also did a large amount of filing and organizing documents.
Head Start provides a lot to children and families in the community. The work is long and hard, definitely not a nine to five job. There are a variety of tasks pertaining to the classroom as well as the program as a whole. Providing a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for children on a daily basis is great. Learning that it takes a team effort to positively impact the education of children. Understanding the importance of helping the family as a whole to promote positive outcomes for children and families. It is rewarding to see the growth of a family.
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – July 29, 2015
The job was very enjoyable; however, when new director was hired the atmosphere was no longer enjoyable. I truly hope when a new director of schools is hired the person will take a REAL look at the director and the enormous turn-over in the department.
Driver (Former Employee) – St Louis,MO – July 23, 2015
A typical day would include driving at least 200 miles in a 10 hour shift. I met people from different walks of life. I engaged in conversations with people and got a better understanding of different disabilities and health issues.
Driver (Current Employee) – St Louis – July 8, 2015
The job is fine I just have to deal with dangerous individuals on the bus and would like something safer. Overall the job was great but a lot of dangerous situations occurred on the bus including drugs, and guns. I feel I would be safer.
