    I worked at First Student full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The knowledge of knowing that I helped to ensure students made it to school and back home safely is what I enjoyed about First Student. First Student puts their best foot forward to ensure the safety of students. The pay was very good for a part time job. I worked as a driver first. Then I moved to dispatch which was a full time position with a little less pay. I enjoyed working with my fellow bus drivers and dispatcher. We were like a family. We had our good days and bad days. Most of all we worked together as a team regardless of differences to make sure we met the ultimate goal. The transporting of students safely.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges that you will encounter are buses breaking down. The mechanics are great, but the buses go through a lot of wear and tear. Also, children getting on the wrong bus. As a driver the worse thing you want to hear come over the radio is that dispatch is looking for a child.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe the management needs to go through a rigorous manager trainee program. They get personally involved with employees and start to show favoritism. They are not professional at all. They will lie and throw there hands to make themselves look good. I love the job besides working with the managers I had.

    Negative Outlook
