    Pros

    There are none needless to say this company has lost all hope and far from being family first. If your a cell leader the supervisor expect you to mistreat your team and that's not right.

    Cons

    The manager are nasty and don't know how to treat there employees. They benefits suck they use to have the best of it all now the treat people like there not human

    I have been working at Blue Bird full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Summer is the Best!!!! Plenty of overtime to go around really benefits you for those extra hours.

    Cons

    During plant closing on and off after summer having to fight with unemployment payments and wondering when you will get paid is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees temp and full time! Do your job and pay them before you leave for plant closing/shutdown just BC you get paid doesn't mean we do!!

    Interning here has been the best. The people are nice and the managers are willing to train you and teach you. They are very trusting. I have learned so much since I joined Blue Bird.

    Middle GA is not the best place for students, but if you like a peaceful place it can be really awesome.

    I worked at Blue Bird (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Once you become full time they have a good pay rate. The work schedule is a steady work with no rotating shifts.

    Cons

    It takes to long to get hired on full time and the benefits are not that great. They need a Union because its a lot of inside problems on the job. they lay off to much as well.

    Advice to Management

    They need to clean up on the inside problems and reward their workers with better benefits and raises for all of the hard work that they do.
