School bus drivers transport children to and from school each day on established routes. Additional extracurricular runs (sports and field trips) and charter work also may be available. Typical runs are during morning and afternoons and average 20 to 30 hours per week
“We’re looking for people who enjoy making a difference in children’s lives, “said Dina Cooper, STA’s corporate recruiting director. “This is a great job for Moms who want to have the same schedules as their school-aged children, retirees and college students looking for extra income.”
Job requirements include a clean driving record and the ability to pass a Department of Transportation physical, a pre-employment drug test and a criminal background check. Experienced bus drivers with Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDL) with P and S endorsements are preferred, but free training will be provided for good drivers without school bus experience. STA’s training program includes classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction to prepare candidates for CDL written and road examinations.
