DRIVER (Former Employee) – Weslaco, TX – April 12, 2018
I loved working there. The only reason I left is because I felt I had gone as far as the company could take me. Great place to work. The safety manager alone is worth staying for. DORA is awesome. No company is perfect but this one I would highly recommend. Sean DeLoatch

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 5, 2017
Managers have been promoted from line employees, refuse to listen to new ideas and keep employees with good ideas down. Managers abuse their positions and favoritism runs rampant., not based on merit but rather who gossips more to the managers.
If you like driving & live to work this is for you.
City Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Roanoke, VA – October 2, 2017
They provide very thorough training before you're driving routes on your own. The problem is you start on what they call an extra board meaning you are substituting for drivers that are out sick, on vacation or otherwise. The problem is they'll schedule you to come in for a standby at 5:15am and then be scheduled to drive a route from 12-9pm. So you end up burning the candle at both ends and you cannot plan anything besides work on your work days.

its not the greatest place to work, while i enjoy what i do very very much the mentality that the company has towards its employees and how we are always reminded that we are replaceable isn't the most inspiring workplace.

Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 11, 2013
This is a highly stressful job, the work load is okay but the type of work is stressful. It is a high volume call center. The management staff is not always on the same page which causes division amongst the workers, there is no accountability for work performance only for attendance. Being a valued worker is not a priority only that you show up. There are no incentatives, no moral and the call center employees are often treated as bottom of the barrel. The pay rate is good and the peer groups are great.

Administrative Assistant-Benefits Coordinator (Former Employee) – Roanoke, Virginia – May 20, 2012
As Secretary to the General Manager, my day began with a brief chat and exchange of pleasantries. Discussion of tasks need to concentrate on given the time of the month, and/or reports needing typed, or dictation of letters to be typed up. I as well, typed correspondence for the company excutives. While doing these tasks, I greeted visitors, answered question of our bus drivers, and/or refered them to the personnel officer. Answered the phone giving travel and time information to riders. Promoted to Benefits Coordinator, and was responsible for the employee benefits, relaying insurance information, maintaining employee records, while still performing the previously discussed tasks of the position.
The most enjoyable part of the job I would have to say were the management staff I worked with. I liked my boss as he was witty and fun to work with and most of the staff had a laid-back pleasantness.
first job i got when moved to virginia, working with the transit company
i was really bored with the type of work i did, transportation, not really my field of interest.
