Bus Driver (Former Employee) – CT – November 22, 2016
Worked here for a year made some friends met a lot of amazing kids. It was a good experience overall. Nice to have the middle of the day to do errands. Its the perfect job if you have young kids because they can go with you.
Split up day which allows for appointments as well as other personal things
School Bus Driver (Current Employee) – New London, CT – September 23, 2016
School bus driving is a great job for anyone. Works well for single parents or parents that can't afford daycare. I have been a driver for 16+ years now. My review of STA as a company is not overly a good one.
Take your children to work with you. Split shift. Great trips.
401k no match. Company doesn't have good benefits or healthcare.
School Bus Monitor (Former Employee) – Lockport, NY – August 11, 2016
I work with kids with Disability, so it was kind of a challenge but enjoyable. I've learned that I had to be very patient. Management was good. Whenever I had a problem with one of the kids not listening they handled it very well. Honestly there wasn't any hard parts working for this company. My most enjoyable part about working with kids is seeing their smiling faces when I come to work, and knowing they miss me if I had to take the day off.
I got picked up and dropped of at home to and from work

STA has tremendous leadership who honestly cares about their team. The compensation and benefits are generous. On the whole, co-workers are bright, motivated, and friendly people. Unfortunately, a steady pipeline of work to support the size of organization they would like to be is difficult to fill.
Expect a level of uncertainty in terms of length of employment due to the nature of engagements.
Student Transportation of America (Former Employee) – Cheektowaga, NY – April 4, 2016
A typical day at work would be assisting the bus driver with safety, by securing them in seat belts for their overall safety. I learned how to communicate with children of all ages, with various handicaps. I assist driver in keeping the bus clean on a daily basis. Teamwork was a major part of my job.The hardest part of the job, was a lack of job security. The enjoyable part of my job, was working with many different children you learn something new every day with kids.
Bus Aide (Former Employee) – Williamstown, NJ – August 10, 2015
It was hard for them to work with my hours and when they felt like it was to difficult to try they let me go. I was a good employee for them and showed up early and was requested by a few drivers but they didn't want me there.
System Engineering and Technical Assistant (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – March 7, 2015
STA is a SETA company. Staff are expected to do what is necessary to become -- and stay -- billable. The management structure is flat, there is no leadership training or mentorship. Be billable or be gone.
Salaries and benefits are sub-par. However, if you're a retired military/civil servant, they'll work with you. Not a company for people early in their career.
