Great company to work for.
Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 1, 2018
The benefits are excellent and the pay is pretty decent (could be higher to keep up with the rapidly rising cost of living). The first 6-12 months are overwhelming from the grueling 15 hour days to learning the extensive operating procedures and regulations. If you can survive beyond that, they offer many opportunities to lateral over into other departments and/or advance. If you are under-qualified, they offer tuition assistance and training opportunities for you to reach where you want to be.
-Easy but crucial work, you are your own boss as long as you do your job right, (no micromanaging!!!!). Most people are nice, you get a jerk every now and then.
-Learned diffusing tense situations(there will be some), handle sensitive situations, and how to deliver exceptional service. Oh, and to drive a bus.
-Supervisors are awesome. Upper management can be overambitious and spread out resources too thin resulting in poorer performance in Operations. But overall I think they're doing a good job.
-Co workers, supervisors and the GM are all very helpful, approachable, and responsive to whatever issue you bring to them. Everyone looks out for one another.
-Passengers can be tough at times, and the scheduling can be hard.
-Best part is making a decent living while cruising around and learning how many awesome people reside in the city.
Benefits, opportunities, positive work environment
short breaks, rude passengers
