    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at First Student (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    it was all online, pretty easy. next you wait for a call. it seems like a good job, pays well for driving a bus. the call first was very friendly and helpful but, in reality Im just wring this to see what the salaries are. I dont want to pay for a membership because im old and this is my last job,
