    Interview

    Durham wants and needs more bus drivers, all the time. So the interview process is easy. The interviewers were current bus drivers who also were trainers. To work at Durham requires passing drug, criminal and background checks and passing the CDL test. For me these were no problem.

    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".
