Lots of rules....to keep you safe?

Driver (Former Employee)
Blaine, MN

I worked at First Transit full-time for less than a year

ProsTons of hours, if I wanted them. They paid time and a half, which was nice, and they offered benefits, which I didn't need at the time. Despite the cons, I enjoyed the work, and would work for them again if I needed employment.

ConsLots of hours forced on you (6 days a week standard, 8-10 hour days). Tons of rules surrounding "safety." Always wear your traffic vest. Back your car into the parking spot in the parking lot. If you're seen on your cell phone while driving IN YOUR PERSONAL CAR in the parking lot, you'll be fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementI understand you're a large company and that you're concerned about liability, but there comes a point where you are treating the employees like children, instead of allowing us to make responsible decisions ourselves.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
