    Pros

    No work on the weekends summer break and vacation breaks paid every week free donuts during employee meetings

    Cons

    worrying about have correct amount of pay, constant request of mechanics to check out reported problems, Having faulty seatbelt wheel chair restraints, communication very poor between upper management and employees. Alot of favoritism with giving recent run openings. Litttle to none health insurance. The workers are not being heard about what they need from this employer obviously this employer does not care.

    Advice to Management

    Shape up or expect the union to be knocking at your door to get what we employee need to support our families. Working at this place you need union representation to get decent pay and benefits, possibly incorporate some form of ethical communication between workers and staff.

    I have been working at Birnie Bus Service full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great management, especially from the corporate office in Rome, New York. The Birnie family believes in hands-on supervision, and employees are treated fairly and ethically. The mechanics are the best in the industry. In my opinion, if you want to work in the transportation industry Birnie Bus Services, Inc is the place to work. Sadly, their contract has ended here in Jacksonville, Florida, but they will always be held in high regard by those of us who were fortunate to work for them from start to end of the 5-year contract. Personally, 31 July 2017 (the final day), will be bittersweet. Thank you, Birnie Bus, for a phenomenal 5 years. Hoping that the tide will turn and you will return to Jacksonville some time in the future. Wishing all of you at Birnie Bus, Services, Inc, a future filled with blessings.

    Cons

    I have no negative comments about Birnie Bus Services, Inc..

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the wonderful work you are doing.
