    I worked at MV Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It’s a paycheck and the mechanics are good people. They have monster in the vending machine. That’s all. Get to meet a lot of new people since everyone quits after a couple months.

    Cons

    Long hours 12 plus. High turnover rate. Hands are tied by a cheap budget with an old fleet. Expect to be called on your days off. Promised training but didn’t receive any. Willful blindness with supervision.

    Advice to Management

    Invest to excel not just to get by. More maintainers, more parts etc.

    MV transportation is that all of the drivers are courteous and friendly. They look out for their fellow co-workers.

    I have been working at MV Transportation (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you do the passenger pick up service, you learn your way around the city in a way you would not think possible. At least in my part of the country, the supervisors and coworkers are decent people to work with each day.

    Cons

    Really sorry pay for the amount of responsibility/liability. They do help with health insurance if you get 35 hours per week, but $10 an hour starting is really lame.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay by about $3/hour.


  9. "Worst experience ever. Management is a joke. They don't care about their employees they are just #'s and can be replaced"

    Pros

    You get to know some good people as far as coworkers.

    Cons

    Nothing is confidential even Human Resources tells all your business as well as upper Management. Even with Corporate office they do the same thing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to keep things confidential. Nobody should know your business. Treat your employees like they matter and not just a number that's replaceable.
