    Pros

    Where I worked the pay was appropriate(Phoenix) but this co. has been know to pay marginally more than the minimum wage.. Good feeling to help handicapped and elderly people. Fairly congenial place.

    Cons

    Some buses are too large and cumbersome. Communications sometimes difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the CDL buses for Dial a Ride work, upgrade the communications system.

    Pros

    Good training! World wide company. Probably can get work in at least half the states.

    Cons

    I was in training for 3 days and only was paid for 2 days. I have emailed one of the trainers/safety manager twice about my pay and still no response. I've called another trainer I had, who said while in training, "I answer my phone anytime." Yea right! Also, I called my trainer/safety manager and left a message. Do you think I got a response, NO! First of all, the pay is bad for CDL drivers, not honest and don't care about folks. All that mess they were talking about a top notch company and can't even pay me for my last day of training. I'm getting up early to be there early, so that means sitting in major traffic for this company and can't even get paid. They don't care about your time. It's been weeks and still nothing. I recommend NOT WORKING FOR THEM!!!!

    Advice to Management

    BE HONEST. Learn how to return emails and calls. Don't shy away from what you did wrong.

    Pros

    Helping the disabled through paratransit program was fantastic. Felt like I was doing a truly good service for the community.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours and split shifts. This was a union shop, so it was very difficult to get rid of bad apples. High turnover rate for the rest of the work force.

    Advice to Management

    Had a great relationship with management. They were put between a rock and a hard place, as the city contract is given to the lowest bidder, there's not a lot of wiggle room when it comes to finances.
