    I worked at First Transit for more than a year

    Pros

    Supervision was better than I expected. When I first started to work for First Transit, I had my doubts. But as time went on, I was pleasantly surprised as I built relationships.

    Cons

    You will find a very strong correlation between First Transit and the unions. Unions are great if you don't do your job. But if you are conscientious, you will find that all they seem to do is take your dues.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the times with the unions and deal justly with the employees.

    I have been working at First Transit full-time

    Pros

    Summers off w half the pay perks. ) Also, a month off before Christmas and a week off in the fall and spring. The time-off w pay are the perks.

    Cons

    No breaks! Which, is nuts! They, devalue the drivers and are too quick to hire anyone to be apart of the managerial team. Which, is most times extremely insulting to workers that have been there for years. There, is no set system. We come back from summer break to a slew of new supervisors..to basically, see who they'll over-work and underpay next! The pay, is insulting and they do not take care of their... drivers. There's controlled and micro-managed. It suffers, as a whole from micro-managed tendencies that sometimes simply unbearable. The buses, are suspect and they take safety concerns as complaints.?

    Advice to Management

    Remember, you were once a driver and how hard and trying it can be. Your dealing w adults; despite, how childish some may act! Do not, forget your dealing w adults who acquired said special endorsement prior to being there. So, to talk-down to anyone is absurd and very much unnecessary.
