    I have been working at Miami Dade Public Schools

    Pros

    I got my CDL, quick employment, easy money, the Children aren't that bad, summers and holidays and teachers work days are spent off

    Cons

    They are bias, favoritism, crazy hours (when you get up it's dark and when you go home it will be dark), GHETTO- most of the 40+ driver think that they are still 14 and they are just that childish, The children and their parents will challenge you just as your coworkers and administrators will, working conditions, roaches, that easy money that I was speaking of isn't enough to support you- let alone a family, dead end,
    You work two to three hours in the morning generally
    Then you are off (not getting paid) unless you have a midday to pick up children or drop off children or you have a field trip but generally, you are off and unpaid for down time
    Then you are off for four hours to five hours
    Then you sign in again to get paid for the afternoon which is about roughly 3-4.5 hours
    The buses break down and there ISNT any A/C after the first week of school. The mechanics have certifications to fix the a/c but they outsource to a company that goes to all compounds and fixes very few busses. There is so much that can be done that isn't.
    It is depressing. IF YOU LIKE LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK, then apply. Most drivers have 2-3 jobs.... I know of several drivers who died on their bus... The job is too stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting with the superintendent: get your crap together and support the drivers!!! They are the first people to see children in the AM and the last to see them when they go home. Drivers are your first line of defense and technically they detect things before it happens with children, but remember: they have to drive, listen to the radio for dispatch calls/announcements, tend to children and the road an their mirrors; They need recognition and a raise... NO raise in 12 years is not something that you would accept and why should they?
