In the maintenance shop I had to work 60 to 70 hours a week on salary. When I ask way they wanted me to work some many hours they put my job in the newspaper and started interviews with my replacement. Such a disrespectful company that cares about money over people every day

This is going to vary from location to location but in general First Student tries to limit all drivers to no more than 43 hours a week. Remember this is a job driving students so you may not get to work during the summer and there are many breaks and holidays. Plan on about 180 days work a year. At my location routes are picked by seniority and available charters are also assigned to drivers based on seniority. An average starting driver should be able to work about 30 hours a week if they want to. With the driver shortage right now the dispatching staff is going to do its best to accommodate anyone who wants more work.

20 hours so a second job is needed if you are not retired and or have a family to support. Make sure to tell them up front you will get another job otherwise they will look down on you for not being free to help out when drivers call in.
