Former Employee - School Bus Driver in Grayslake, IL
Former Employee - School Bus Driver in Grayslake, IL

Pros

The job itself offers a flexible schedule and most of the students in the district are nice kids. You used to be able to take your kids to work with you.

Cons

Durham bought out our local bus company and started a repair as needed policy on their busses. Preventive maintenance would greatly improve the condition of the busses.

Advice to Management

You need to run the company like your kid rides your bus. You should also stop creating obstacles for the women who work for you.

    Pros

    It's a pay check. 3% company matching 401k available. Healthcare insurance available. Two weeks vacation per year. Paid major holidays and sick leave.

    Cons

    On call for bus break downs on week ends and holidays with out being compensated.
    Unable to timely repair buses due to corporate holding up parts requisitions.
    Company hires inexperienced maintenance personal, which in turn makes the experienced maintenance personals job twice as hard and time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to corporate "upper" management:
    Start treating your maintenance personal like people instead of objects to be abused.
    Stop micro managing maintenance shops. Let the GM's and Maintenance Leaders do the jobs they have been hired to do.
