    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at First Student (Wheeling, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy questions, very fast process. The interviewer was a very pleasant person. They tell you what is expected of you. You will get training in all the different transportation vehicles.
