Bad buses, Owned by a miser, no opportunities for advancement, WAY too top heavy
School Bus driver (Current Employee) – Dearborn Heights, MI – February 26, 2016
Most of these buses have multiple problems with them, in desperate need of several repairs, but management just shrugs the problems off. I wouldn't put my kids on any of their buses after working there. If you speak out about not being paid all the hours you work, you'll be fired later on down the line for something else. I've seen it time and time again. The people that speak out about the crooked management are always the ones to disappear first. Mechanics are not given the tools they need to fix buses, because management is paranoid about the mechanics stealing the parts. Most parts are from the company junkyard in Brownstown, which I don't have a problem with, I sometimes use junkyard parts for my own vehicle, but the parts they pull are frequently broken. They are no longer allowing any overtime at all. If you work as a motor coach driver, you're not entitled to overtime at all. A good number of the school buses don't have heat in Detroit, and management doesn't care. Pay starts at 13.00 an hour for school bus drivers.
crooked management, low wages, no opportunities for advancement
