This is a good job for some one who is available for a few hours in the morning and afternoon

ProsIf you are willing to take extra routes there is always extra work available. The schedule is flexible for a part-time college student, retired person, or a stay at home mom with extra time to spare. You can choose to work during the summer months or take a break. The work schedule allows for flexibility around holidays following the local school district schedule. There are usually additional shifts during the holidays, weekends, and summer available for those who are interested in additional hours when other private groups charter a bus.

ConsMost of the buses are not air-conditioned, so it is very hot during the warm months. During the winter it is very cold until the bus warms up after driving for quite a while. Some of the buses are not maintained well. It is at times a high stress high pressure job. Student behavior can prove problematic at times. There are only bus monitors on the special needs buses to help with behavioral issues.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    High expectations, Very low return! No need for it.

    I have been working at Durham School Services full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Able to work outside. OT available. Passengers are best part of your day. Non-office job where bosses… Cons: High Stress, High turnover, High union dues. Mgmt does not communicate with employees. General Manager is almost never seen by drivers. Drivers not given feedback… Advice to Senior Management: Communication is key and would be nice. Employees are people,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
