First Student (Current Employee), Severn, MD – January 13, 2014
They make me feel at home. I learned that if I try my best, I can do anything I put my mind to. My coworkers are so nice and funny. The most enjoyable part of my job is picking up the students It's always something new happening with them.
First Student: School Bus Driver (Current Employee), Cheektowaga, NY – September 12, 2013
Pros: hours off between runs to get things done.
Cons: healthcare options are extremely expensive, out of reach.
Working at First Student is great! The other drivers and monitors are friendly, the management is easy to talk with, and the dispatchers are always there to help you out. I like working with children and knowing I played a part in their lives. The hardest part of my job would be dealing with traffic and having to anticipate when another driver is going – more... to cut you off or run through your red lights. Keeping the children safe is the number one priority, always! – less

School Bus Driver (Former Employee), Woodhaven, MI – June 10, 2013
Pros: picking up the kids
Cons: low hours
A typical day is picking up High School kids and dropping them off, then picking up Junior High kids and dropping them off, then picking up Grade school kids and dropping them off. Then in the afternoon you take them all home. The Management and co-worker were great. The hardest part was leaving due to you only work 25-30 hours per week. The most enjoyable – more... part was picking up all the kids. – less
