    I have been working at Metro Transit St. Louis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job Security after 6 Months. More second shift hours available.

    Cons

    Slow to move up on seniority list. May take several years to get day shift with weekends off.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage suggestion box for decisions regarding major shift changes, large van purchases, including any possible changes that would have a major impact on the 200 drivers. As these are only suggestions that may help make a positive impact on everyone and avoid possible problems in the future. Need more Management / Driver Communication or Suggestions with large possible changes. Ask for driver input with only 1 or 2 new vans in the field before ordering more. Get one month test drive of basic version of new vans before making large purchases.
