Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Longmont, CO – May 26, 2018
Must have the skills to drive a bus and make sure you can concentrate and pay attention to every thing while driving a bus. Meet a lot of people, some good, some bad some RUDE. The best part was the regular customers that road the bus! you basically become friends!
I Love to drive
The other traffice does not care if you are a bus they will cut you off
Customer Service Reservationist (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 21, 2018
First Transit is poorly managed, get pay, lack organization, no team work, attitudes, cut-throat, and the head corp office treat you like trash. I would not recommend this job to anyone. Very stressful job which causes many health problems even some workers death.
Jobs are challenging as there not always the same hours each day. The people I worked with were fun to be around.
Bus monitor (Former Employee) – Cuba, NY – May 21, 2018
Because I worked as a part time employee there were no job benefits unless I paid for them. . Because of my job as a monitor for pre-K Special Needs kids the hardest part was dealing with them when they were having a bad day. Wrestling them into their seats when they were fighting not to go into them was quite a challenge at times. The most enjoyable things were working with the kids when things were going well. I was teaching them manners helping with colors and proper grammer. They were fun, silly and and quite a handful all at the same time. Will miss them greatly.

By all means treat yourself. there is endless over time available. there is no guarantee of a favorable schedule, but again ENDLESS OVERTIME. OCC will irritate you. Supervisor change, high turnover rate.
Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Longmont, CO – April 18, 2018
If you enjoy the public and driving then its a great place for a single person to work! You are providing a service to the community each and every day. I does take commitment and is difficult to balance with a family life, but the atmosphere is fun and the people you work with are a blast!
Great location, challenging, opportunity to make a good work place a great work place.
Assistant General Manager (Current Employee) – Lawnside, NJ – April 16, 2018
My experience at first transit is one of mixed views and emotions. First transit is comprised of many different companies that the parent company First Group has purchased. That is great for diversity however with acquiring those companies First Transit simply transfers those same cultures to a new operation and does not focus enough on instilling the core values of First Group at these new locations. First Group is a great organization but that greatness has to be funneled down throughout the ranks. Simply transplanting old practices and culture to new operations simply continues bad practices and strong holds. I truly believe that management development classes would go a long way within First Transit as an organization.
