    Safety & Training Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Southfield, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Durham School Services (Southfield, MI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the Site GM and the Regional Manager. It was fairly comfortable, for a "group" interview. It became clear to them that I knew transportation, just not bus transportation. The GM walked me around and introduced me to everyone, the day of my interview, so I felt somewhat confident that I "nailed it".

    Bus Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Ana, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Durham School Services (Santa Ana, CA).

    Interview

    "Interview" was a group 'presentation' whee applicants had to watch a video on the company, bring their H-6, and fill out application. Then each applicant was given a test for personality, and if they passed this test they got a short Interview with the interviewer. If offered a "job", they were sent for the drug test and physical as well as live scan. Once these came back they were scheduled for training. However, training is unpaid (applicants are mislead about this) and could take months to complete.

    Negotiation

    I initially accepted the position. However, after learning that I would need to give 4 months of full time unpaid training, despite being fully qualified for the position including possessing all required licensing and endorsements, I took my skills elsewhere.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Durham School Services (Middletown, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview was okay. If you do not have a cdl they will give you everything you need to pass the test. They go over how the job is and comes with it. There key is safety so they will ask you multiple questions on situations you were in and what you did in that situation or would do. They will also tell you the contract you have to sign if you do not have a cdl and the train you which keeps you there for 6 n months or have to pay 900
