Fun place

Pay is too lowKids are a good plus, some schools better then others.Always short driversCharters handed out by seniority, so if you are new you might not get very many or not the high paying ones.Union

Toxic environment

A joke of a repair facility at all levels, shop is incredibly small and dumpy with absolutely zero management, no lunch room, no fridge, no heat. Mechanics do what they want when they want with no accountability. Repairs are questionable with safety issues being put on the back burner. This garage is a toxic environment with a revolving door of mechanics over the years. Don’t waste your talent or time on this place,

Points positifs

None

Points négatifs

Too many to list

Dangerous Buses and Management is not supportive

Working with the kids and even the difficult ones became easier with time. Management leaves alot to be desired.Unsafe vehicles, constantly breaking down and never any decent backup buses it's your license at risk.

Points positifs

The most enjoyable part is getting to know the kids.

Points négatifs

Driving unsafe Buses and constant breaking down

Confusing and inflexible management

Driving kids is amazing. They are fun, polite, and engaging. First Student management in Ottawa however is the opposite. I work a full time job and drive part time. Recently I have had to request extra days away from driving for my FT job and First Student management called me into the office to discuss my ‘attendance’. Upon arrival the manager didn’t even know why I was there and then accused me of having a bad attitude because I was confused. No patience, no empathy, no flexibility. Rude behaviour, sharp tongue and sour facial expressions at every instance. I have had to drive twice now in a van with doors that would not open. Drivers have been without air conditioning in hot months. And, car seats for smaller children have not always been available for relief drivers. Even the gas cards don’t work properly.

Points positifs

Dispatch ladies are amazing

Points négatifs

Management is angry always

Poor management/office staff

Office staff are rude and disrespectful towards employees. Management is too scared of stepping on anyone's toes to do anything about it. Each employee is just a seat filler, there is no respect to the employees as people.

Points positifs

Good for parents with young children

Points négatifs

Poor management, office staff, little pay

Wonderful work family, fun job

I drove bus for two years while my son was small. I loved the dispatchers, manager and other drivers at my location. My route was fantastic, and the kids I drove for the two years were phenomenal aswell. The one and only thing I did not care for was having to get up extra early in Winter to clear off a big ol' 40ft school bus (haha). The pay, for what it is, is feasible but unfortunately not enough to live off of. As a supplemental salary, it can be sufficient. I enjoyed my experience working with First Student so much that I've considered figuring a way to return since I've left..

Enjoyable, responsible for your own bus and students.

It can be a bit overwhelming the first week but well worth the learning curve and memorizing stops and names.I can't believe I never done this years ago. I had my own business and worked at a hospital for 16.5 yrs and this job is the best I have ever done.Very rewarding work even if we are paid a bit lower than other companies.Management is absolutely awesome and so supportive!

Points positifs

Time off between runs, childrens smiles!

Points négatifs

Personality clashes, frosty mornings and windshields.

Not bad unless you're in it for lots of money

Regular bonuses that make up for average pay and not many hours. If you get a route it will probably be short as people with seniority will get more hours. Management is lovely and supportive at least where I am and training process was easy but extensive. They'll teach you about everything you need to know about driving a bus and the rest you'll get from paid training sessions and driver improvement courses they run through the year. Good retirement job with low stress (depending on the kids you get!!) In general I'd say.

Points positifs

Loyalty bonuses for staying and having good attendance

Points négatifs

Short hours, no benefits

Fun job, lack of concern for hours

The job switched from being really flexible with hours to needing more. Hard for busy workers who have education or other job needs. Other than that, a fun and interesting job with friendly coworkers

It's a job

The immediate shop manager is excellent. The division manager, regional and area management is ridiculous. I've never experienced such incompetence.

Easy and worthwhile

Get up really early (5 o'clock), get to yard, pre trip bus. Hot tail it to your stops, don't rely on the gps they give you it is shocking, get the kids to school. Repeat in the afternoon but in reverse.Learnt to drive a big bus.Treated like an adult and dispatch are willing to help when needed.Management not fantastic, not the worst either.Hardest part: getting up in the morning, esp in winter.Enjoyable? More like rewarding.

Points positifs

Rewarding job

Points négatifs

Not paid enough
