I would not recommend this job unless you are ok with crazy hours and stressful environments. If you are a student or a person without children and your schedule is pretty much open then this is a great job for you.
Necessary service to the Community - fun environment
Adult Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 12, 2018
Truly enjoyed the job and fellow employees. Very community minded company. Did have to be willing to come in on call and willing to be at work for longer periods when transportation needs required. But employer was always willing to work with you and your schedule.

Case Aide Safety Specialist/Routine Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 6, 2018
Faced Pasted, Replaxed and it is a training up employer.
They are a training up company, meaning they have a point systen and talk to their employees one on one when they make a mistake. They do not immediately terminate an employee.They work with them on a case. By case basis. There are certain mistakes that are instantly fireable if committed.
They are a training up company, point systen, talk to and work with the employees..
The amount of hours, down time, lack of team work and support.
DCS Case Aide/ Coordinator / Program Supervisor (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 15, 2017
As a Supervisor I was always drowning in work. I worked long hours and was required to be on call even after hours. I am grateful for the advancement but the pay was way less for what I have received at other companies being in management position.
It's an okay job if you like to drive and sight ser
School attendant (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 15, 2017
The job is very easy don't get me wrong and the people are really cool, however it gets kinda hard when you don't get a lot of call because you're on down time and you don't get paid for your downtime.
Transporter (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 7, 2017
I love the job it self ,I just did not like how they ran the company.the managment was unfair and there was a lot of favoritism. The reason I was at this company for so long had nothing to do with the people I worked with, I really enjoyed the job.
DCS Case Aide (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 20, 2017
Comtrans began as a specialty transportation company focused on mentally challenged patients needed non-emergency transport. They are now a contract agency with the Department of Child Services, and looking to offer even more services and opportunities in the Fall of 2017. As with most social service providers pay is not always the highest, but the flexible nature of the staff and the corporate culture are hard to beat. Though I do work some long hours I have managed to never miss a ballet recital or major school function for my kids, and I had time off during my wife's surgery and recovery. They have been so loving and supportive at this company. It is truly amazing.
Flexible, cares about employees, growing, time off as needed
Driver (Former Employee) – Kingman, AZ – May 31, 2017
in the rural area i live in you end up working long hours no family time my typical day was around 15 to 20 hours long driving if you have family i do not recommend but if you love to drive others around and dont mind almost never being home then this would be for you.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Orange County, CA – March 3, 2017
A typical day at Comtrans consists of hard work. When it comes to logistics, it takes a fast paced, intelligent team to ensure success. The hardest part of the job is making sure clients, employees and other vendors are all on the same page.
Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 7, 2017
I used to work as a driver and was very happy with the training they provided and the job itself. They were very happy to answer questions. It can be challenging in the fact that you are constantly on the road and may have to sit and just wait. Also the hours can be funny if there are no clients to pick up- then you get to go home early. But I was able to pick up morning shift hours and work all day occasionally if they had extra hours available.
Get rid of unpaid down time if you want to keep quality people.
Case Aide (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 15, 2016
I worked for a year to give the company a fair look. As a DCS Case aide you are responsible for facilitating visits between parents and children that have been separated by the state of Arizona. It is a big responsibility in my opinion, the pay does not coincide with it. Also with "Downtime" you can bring in as little at 600 in two weeks after tax. All while working 12 plus hours a day. I dont mind working the hours but the pay needs to be addressed if you want to keep quality people plain and simple. Supervisor and Coordinators were good as were co-worker's. I would have stayed for a long time if the pay was livable.
