    I worked at Pasco County Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job... if that even a Plus!

    Cons

    No A.C. on buses, unprofessional staff, training program is not helpful and boring! No incentives to stay... no pay raises! Union is a joke... Only took me 4 months to realize this place was a mess... I was disgusted at the lack of backing drivers had for student discipline.. I watched 2 bus assistants get into a fist fight while on the clock and still keep their job!!

    Advice to Management

    Act professional and maybe it will help staff follow!
