    I worked at Spokane Transit Authority full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome retirement and great coworkers. Wages and benefits are very good for the industry.

    Cons

    Oppressive management with new technology taking away the professionalism of the operators and leaving all decisions on the road to supervisors with out experience behind the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as professionals and they will rise to the challenge.

    I worked at Spokane Transit Authority full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cannot think of any. Get a Class A CDL...

    Cons

    This company gets off by firing people.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO of Spokane Transit Authority should be ashamed of herself. Poor best describes how this taxpayer funded government entity treats injured workers. Due to pending litigation I cannot elaborate further but, from the CEO down, heads need to roll.

    Cons

    There is not enough room on this page....Sum it all up..They treat you like garbage.. you are nothing

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are qualified stop hiring friends and family...Get rid of your overly flirtatious supervisor's


  4. "A true bureaucratic experience, the top guys make out ok, bottom line workers get the short end"

    Pros

    Money is the best reason. The union got workers a fair shake at 23. bucks a hour top out wage plus a golden benefits package.

    Cons

    This is a dead end job, there is no place to go up. Once you are a bus driver you are that for life. It is hard to get past other hiring managers when they ask the question. So you drive a bus?
    there is poor communication from management and of course they hate the union. It all runs downhill here.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your head out. do little things to improve moral like fixing the parking issues and train your supervisors. period. These guys don't know anything about management or HR stuff. You call them supervisors but they are really glorified dispatchers.

    Keep up the good work.
