    I worked at STA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The kids are amazing. I formed a special bond with my pre k kids. Even though I had issues with a couple of my other runs, they still ask about me (since I’ve moved).

    Cons

    The fact that there’s no cameras to show any wrongdoings by staff and of the children. Bullying is a real thing that needs prof to get any sort of action to resolve the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Put cameras on every bus. For proof of wrongdoings. Put cameras on the front and side of the buses for cars running through the stop sign and lights.

    There are no pros here.

    Backstabbing and untruthful bunch of business leaders with no skill, class or competence.

    Advice to Management

    Quit! Each and everyone of you. Stop telling employees you are giving them a 401(k)! No your NOT

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

    Pros

    Many companies claim to be family friendly, but few really are. After my first interview upper management from STA called to ask me how my son felt about his father traveling for work. STA does not just claim to be family oriented, it’s woven into their business practices.

    Cons

    For me the only negative I found was the location of the position I really wanted. I have no complaints whatsoever, just an incredible company staffed with incredible employees!

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Izzi maintain exactly what you do and how you do it. As long as you continue conducting interviews as you did mine, STA will surely be staffed with some of the best and brightest. I immensely enjoyed the entire process as well as meeting all the wonderful people which STA employs. .

    Pros

    You can earn a CDL-B license and get needed experience to give yourself an opportunity to go elsewhere for a CDL-B job if you can't drive full-time here or get a better paying job at this bus company.

    Cons

    School bus driving jobs only average about 25 hours per week. Good luck getting that much work over the 9 weeks of summer break, The week from around Christmas Eve thru New Year's Day, Easter break, or the week of Thanksgiving.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to your employees side of the story. Don't always take the customers side.
