The only job I ever loved.
Bus operator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 7, 2018
Worked for Cta for 5 yrs as a bus operator, loved my job so much with Cta, enjoyed my coworkers and all staff, sometimes the passengers can get to you, but best way to over come them is kill them with kindness once in a while it will not work but there is always one bad apple that falls from the tree. You must love to deal with people and have a great control of your mind and feelings. Never take anything personal. Always know your place and carry yourself as a professional. Be kind and polite and helpful and I promise you you will love to work as a bus operator and you will enjoy the perks of the job, specially now there are very little jobs out there that will give you a full retirement pension with medical, dental, vision covered and for your Immediate family members. When I see people write bad things about being a bus operator for Cta it’s because clearly that job is not for them! Being a bus operator is not for everyone, but I tell you one thing if you learn that it’s for you the job itself will give you a great life if you take advantage of what Cta has to offer, you can build a future for your family. Along with great full pay at $33+ an hour and work as much over time as you can. You will be able to provide for your family and when you get old Cta pays you back by giving you a lifetime pension for the years you serve them. I mean seriously. The American dream is still alive.
Nothing, unless you are lazy and irresponsible
