    Pros

    If you like children and driving a large vehicle. Working no holidays or summers. Having the same days off as most school systems.

    Cons

    They put inexperienced people into management. They care not about your credibility your attendance your dedication or humanity towards the children you are driving. They were the most uncaring inhumane people i ever met . After working at one company for over 33 years and never taking time off and taking all the extra work that came my way. They treated me like crap. They humiliated me in front of my co workers. They made me feel very depressed like i was under a microscope. Terrible to work for they cam in at the end of my career.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of the unexperienced uncaring people you put behind the desk. They have no judgement of character. The worst i ever worked for in the years i was there. I never took one day off the whole time you owned the company and they treated me like dirt. Poor business management. Shame on you.

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, management is very helpful and understands the challenges of the job. STA treats their employees with respect and builds employees up to succeed.

    Cons

    With any school bus driving job, it is a part time job and seasonal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Jackie is awesome to work for. Great people to work with. Excellent new buses! MST is the best school bus company to work for in Los Angeles. MST brings a lot more safety consciousness when they took over Atlantic Express, much better uniforms now, like the button up shirt over the polo.

    Cons

    Jim Lasky was an excellent manager, he has been promoted and does not run the day to day operations anymore. A real tragedy. Get transit qualified. Health benefits are 9.5% out of whatever you make. There is a matching 401(k) where you contribute up to 3% and MST will match 1.5% pro rata up to 5 years employment where you will get the full 1.5%.


  9. Great team but beware of them not letting you know how bad the kids are.

    Pros

    Great instructors and great safety meetings.

    Cons

    Had a bad commute, not much to do in the area for down time. No holiday pay when you need it the most. Lot of work getting workers comp.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be upset if a guy wants to bail out before the year contract is up, we all need to make a living.

    Pros

    Easy job, home at night. Most people are friendly.

    Cons

    Early morning wake up. Not enough pay for the hours. Hours are limited. Will most likly have to use unemployment on top of working here. They will not pay over time. If you go over 40 hours they will illegally move over hours to next week or they will send you home early. There is favoritism at the terminal I worked at. Also office staff is to many head chefs in the kitchen. Poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Limit office staff and talk to each other.
