    I worked at STA full-time

    Pros

    Nice office, free food in break room, donuts on fridays

    Cons

    Management is awful and departments do not get along.

    Advice to Management

    The drivers are important, but how about the back office!? When a PT seasonal bus driver gets a much larger xmas bonus than the $50 gift cards you have to all back office staff, there's something wrong.

    Pros

    Descent pay, Schedule appointments in between shifts,

    Cons

    Management shows favoritism toward certain drivers by allowing those drivers first pick of extra hours, no benefits offered that a person can afford.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are treating all employees equally no matter how long with the company. Offer benefits that all employees can afford.

    I have been working at STA part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in the morning and afternoon to drive students to and from school allows time in between for other obligations, or you can drive . There are opportunities to drive for trips between runs, in the evening, and on weekends.

    Cons

    Inconsistent wage. You get a flat rate for your school runs, which varies based upon your run. Trips are paid hourly and start at $15/hour. Some times of the year there are tons of trips for extra income potentional. Other times, not so much.

    Advice to Management

    To not play favorites as much with trips so it is more fair.
