I worked at First Transit full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent pay, company uniforms, free bus rides to and from work, joining the union isn't mandatory, as long as you complete the paperwork you get your overtime like your supposed too

Cons

Most of the office people besides payroll are clueless and useless half the time, otherwise they try to smile in your face while stabbing you in the back or pass the buck to road supervisors when they have problems with you instead of dealing with you directly

    Cons

    It was very family dominated
    Seemed like some management were not all that well prepared
