great place to work
School Bus Driver/ trainer (Employé actuel) –  Mississauga, ON19 août 2019
great management. dispatch are nice. fully support with office. the route is straight forward but the working hours is around 4-5hrs a day. if you want to earn more money, you have to ask for extra runs or asking for work in office.
Points positifs
flexible
Points négatifs
working hours are too low, but you can ask for extra work

School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Mississauga, ON5 août 2019
A very Good company with defined procedure. Take cares of employees in all respect. Management staff is very polite.

I enjoyed working with the company. They provide good training to its drivers and there are also opportunity to grow for different position.

No respect for the employee
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Midland, ON5 août 2019
School Busses are in bad shape, Break Problems, Steering Problems, Bald Tires, Fuel Tank Leaks, Engine Fumes leaking into the Bus well driving and parts of the bus falling off well you are driving.

You have to perform other duties without being paid for, IE: Bus Fueling, Bus washing.

Poor Management from the top down.

Stay as far away from this company as possible.

Started with First Studen in July 2014 and ended on June 2019, they lost another contract and will only continue to lose contracts due to the poor service and poor Manage that they offer both the employees as well as the School Boards
Points positifs
Met some really nice School Bus Drivers over my 6 Years with First Student
Points négatifs
Poor working conditions, Dangerous Busses, Poor Management, underpaid

Great part time, or retirement job
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Bowmanville, ON26 juillet 2019
First student is a great company to work for. If you love kids and are patient, this is a great job. The company atmosphere is great and very helpful with any issues you have. On the job you have full independence. The only downfall is the mechanics think and treat you like they have far more superiority than you, and you are an idiot...lol. you don't have to deal with them if you don't want to.

Thought I would always have job security
School Bus Driver (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB26 juillet 2019
You think....
They will always need school bus drivers
Who else would want to do this job
I don't need to worry about losing my job

Cannot keep customers (schools and other charter contracts)
which means less jobs and lack of extra work
Points positifs
Lots of days off, Split shifts
Points négatifs
Management, Parents, Roads, Traffic

Brutal Labour Relations
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Richmond Hill, ON23 juillet 2019
If you want to be treated like an individual that is not appreciated, valued, or has any dignity, than you should work here for First Student. This company does not care for employees, so do what others do and fill out pappepwork for extra time. This is how everyone gets around poor management.

Very low pay, and very high expectations and responsibilities
Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Ancaster, ON19 juillet 2019

Points positifs
Not having to work evenings, weekends or holidays.
Points négatifs
Management having favourites and do not live up to verbal commitment s

Free training
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Saskatoon, SK15 juillet 2019
You’re basically your own boss, only thing is if you don’t do charters you’re really only getting paid working 4 hours a day, and that’s if school is open, you don’t get paid when school isn’t running, you can take your child with you which is nice
Points positifs
Good wage
Points négatifs
Circle checks in extreme cold, no a/c in warm weather, early mornings

Not good
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB10 juillet 2019
Can't understand the recent high ratings given by Calgarians. First Student recently lost two major contracts in Calgary. Aging fleet. Lots of breakdowns.Not disgruntled. Just truthful.

Working for First Student
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB7 juillet 2019
The job was good working with family time etc But as many places these days not enough staff to properly and efficiently fulfill all the requirements. Training was great at first but lacking over the later years. Staff was friendly and helpful. But was a lack of appreciation and recognition in a lot of cases. Not always the best attitude if you have to call in sick because it does happen to us all.
Points positifs
Being able to balance work and family life.
Points négatifs
Working in non air conditioned vehicle

Consistent hours. Great dispatches.
School Bus Driver (Employé actuel) –  Winnipeg, MB4 juin 2019
Good place to work. Co workers have good advice for new employees and help is just a radio call away.
Rules dont change. So consistency makes things easy to deal with.
Zonar and cameras on the bus helps you to have your backside covered.
Training program is top rate with instructors always willing to answer and explain things.
Points positifs
Consistent hours . Great supervisors and training program
Points négatifs
No benefits. Only 4 hours of work s day

Horrible Management
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Richmond Hill, ON1 juin 2019
This company is owned by a UK company and they do not care about Canadian employees. You don’t get paid what you are supposed to. You work extra hours and do not get minimum wage. Horrible management that is non-existent when you want to ask about your pay.
Points positifs
Students you drive
Points négatifs
Management from other country

Safety First - a great second family
Prefer not to say (Ancien employé) –  Airdrie, AB14 mai 2019
Airdrie location was a great place to work, it has its ups and downs, but at the end of the the day, we are all employed to keep the wheels turning and that is exactly what is done. I have learnt a great deal on transportation safety in 13 years of employment. Upper Management has changed drastically over the years which causes a domino effect...This is a fantastic job as a driver, charter driver, casual driver. Good staff need to be rewarded and recognized.
Points positifs
Everyone pulls together and works as a team, it's a second family
Points négatifs
long hours, anytime from 6am-6pm
