    I worked at First Student part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere and having experience by safely transporting children from home and school also learning the special needs that the children require through patience and knowledge to accommodate their varied needs.

    Cons

    Learning to deal with their unexpected moods and illness, such as throwing up on the bus and having to deal with cleaning it up.

    Advice to Management

    Being able to communicate effectively with the drivers with patience and understanding. Realizing that some days are more stressful than other days.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to follow your aspirations and chart your own path. Lot of opportunities in the regional divisions which means lot of growth.

    Cons

    The money is good but can definitely be better. They should ideally benchmark their salaries as per industry averages which should be good.

    Advice to Management

    They should look at more dedicated marketing channels and target students much more effectively. That should help their cause for sure.
