Horrible!
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB14 octobre 2019
Worked there got injured on the job and they lied about everything! They make sure you don’t get WCB, they don’t want their ratings to go down or pay for their employees when they get injured.
I would never work there again!

Toxic and unhealthy environment.
Dispatcher (Ancien employé) –  Barrie, ON6 octobre 2019
Management is not in your side 100%. Office staff and dispatch are overwhelmed, over worked and under paid. First Student used to be a pleasant place to work a couple of years ago. New management have made it very uncomfortable and non enjoyable for dispatch & drivers. It’s is not an open door policy and it’s always hectic in the office.
Points positifs
Flexible hours for drivers
Points négatifs
poor management, ungrateful and tardy

Favourable to your ideas
Sales Manager (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB3 octobre 2019
Overall great place to work — employees are mostly well-seasoned with the company (some 40+ year careers with the company).

The company believes in strong values and is dedicated to make your working experience favourable to your work/home life, making it easy for most family schedules.

The people are helpful
Points positifs
People, leadership

Bus Driver
Driver (Employé actuel) –  Grande Prairie, AB27 septembre 2019
School Bus Driver, you have set routes, which is nice as it gives you a chance to to get to know your students. It is part time so it gives a lot of free time to do other things.

I enjoyed working as a school bus driver, transporting students to school and back.
School Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Etobicoke, ON18 septembre 2019
If you enjoy driving and are not in need of making a lot of money, then working for First Student as a school bus driver would be a good career option.

Failing company blaming the workers
Mechanic (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB15 septembre 2019
Former Mechanic in Calgary. Management ran by accountants, no regard for the actual workers . Very poor facility and equipment, washroom and break room you would not have your dog in. Unless you are a yes man and will do patch up work and ignore defects you see they will find some way to make you leave . Avoid this company its about to fail anyways .

first student #1 concern was about safety for everyone. it was a respectable environment.
First Student (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB28 août 2019
I was responsible to make sure that every morning my bus was road ready. I would spend about 20 minutes doing a full inspection on my bus. when you are responsible for the lives of many people every day you can not take safety for granted. management was very knowledgeable in there training to have me ready to do my job in the best way. I enjoyed driving my kids to school every day, the hardest part was leaving when the business closed down.

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

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.

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
