What I like about the company

working with the public work on your own good benefits and retirement

the pay scale for your pay rise should be changed and top pay should be 4 years. and new employees should not have to work the hardest routes

Overall compensation for your work

Since this is a union job you start at the bottom and get the worst shifts possible for the next 3 years until you build up some seniority.

What I like about the company

Top paid is over 27 dollars a hour.

What I dislike about the company

It takes 7 years to get there.

Company Culture

There is a union which works is partnership between leadership and employees when there is an issue.

Support from management

There is little to no daily supervisor interaction. This job is self motivating.

Teamwork

Not required.

Freedom to work independently

N/A

Internal Communication

This is a key and essential part of being a driver for city transit. There is no lack in.communication.

Work-Life Balance

Not for new hires. Pretty much are on call 20 hours a day. This changes after about a year on the job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Understand that people are human, working long hours require more than exactly 8 hours in between shifts.

What I like about the company

Working with the public was most rewarding. No two days are the same and the independent work day was great.

What I dislike about the company

The new hire structure is difficult when you are on "the board" or on call for tenures driver call offs. This was extremely difficult and the demands for safety were often compromised with vigorous work schedules.
