A relaxing ,happy, hard working day. Every day I learned something new in the trade I do and try to get better every day. I worked closely with management so we have a productive day. You have to respect and be a good example for them to fallow. If the necessary materials for the job is not available that makes it a little tough. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I fix the problem and every one is happy.
Nice place to work, great people. However, if you work for an elected official it can be really tough when a new person takes office. The benefits are really nice. They have their own wellness clinic. Politics can be stressful.

The major component of the Safe Team's mission is to provide presence to downtown Silver Spring. One manner in which the Safe Team can increase visibility and mobility during its patrol is by the use of bicycles.
The feeling of helping the public and business owner with problem's
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, GA – February 4, 2018
Great people to work with, scheduling was fair. I left the position because every other month employees were required to work night shift with no additional pay differential for working night shift. The compensation was above the state minimum wage, but there was a fair amount of turn over because of low wages in the area. They were willing to train and send to classes and school.
Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Silver Spring, MD – January 29, 2018
Current employee. The probation period is longer than any other county position (1 year) . Supervisors constantly threating termination if you are to call out. You are not union represented durning this period of time. Ride On employees have not received their proper raises in 5 years and barley get the cost of living increase. I now see why people use ride to obtain their CDL class B and leave.
I worked for the County for many years and left on good terms. I would not recommend Montgomery County for anyone looking for a career or just pay. The work culture is cut throat and there is no communication or cooperation anywhere between departments. Even within each department there are a lot of issues.
Good place to work. High pressure job. Good benefits political no heavy lifting lots of computer work dealing with public answering phone ,1 hour lunches with 2 15 minute breaks good hours 730-430 Monday-Friday
Very stressful at times and rewarding at other timed
Bus Operator (Former Employee) – Montgomery County, MD – November 21, 2017
I began my career at ride-on it was very rewarding but over time it became very stressful and tedious and not a fun place to work. Over the years I learned that it was important for me to try and help the younger generation in areas of the job and my experiences.
