    Former Employee - Transit Driver in Ames, IA

    I worked at City of Ames, Iowa part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Driving a city bus gives a fun challenge to be learned. High pay and nice people to work with. Get to interact with people all day.

    Cons

    Positions are only part time, and getting hours in the summer is extremely difficult. Winter weather can create stressful situations. And driving later in the day can be frustrating when trying to find an available restroom that's open to the public while staying within a time schedule.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, follows Iowa State University schedule, a raise every year, room to grow and expand the programs, flexibility to learn how to be a good supervisor.

    Cons

    Lower pay than other places in town, management does not always get back to you in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to respond to your employees in a timely matter so they can best improve the program they are working on.
