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

    Pros

    A company full of dedicate people who work toward a common purpose every day - serving our customers with safe, reliable transportation.
    I never hear "I don't have time" or "It's not my job". The sense of "team" here is amazing. Customers respect the expertise of our company and look to us as the experts in para-transit. It is refreshing to sell from a place of credibility.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work. Avoid this company if you don't want to work hard. Balancing work and life can be a challenge at times for management because the company moves fast. The newer leadership team has improved decision making, speed and customer focus. As a result, there is pressure to plan ahead and move quickly against those plans. It can be tough if you don't.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the pace and remain focused on customers and the people in the company that serve them every day (drivers, mechanics and customer service reps). If they are happy and well trained customers will be happy and safe.

    Pros

    Giving back to the community

    Cons

    Break time at times is a distance from next pick time, need improvement in scheduling pick up after break it should be set around last drop off, or not break is limited... also driver's are mandated on a Graveyard shift on holidays?

    Advice to Management

    Driver's lobby/waiting areas should be with working TVs, beverages n maybe some bagels and a comfortable environment for standby drivers. Better scheduling from last drop off & break. Also, scheduling passengers closer to destination.

    Treat divisions like they are a part of the global company they are. Not tiny mom and pop transportation sites.
