In this day and age, it can be tough to find a career option that can support both you and your family over the long-term. It seems as though fewer and fewer companies care about the financial welfare of their employees. For many workers, it can be a struggle to find hours or to find hours that work with any other jobs and family commitments they may have. When even scraping by becomes a struggle, it’s very easy to get discouraged and feel as though your long-term career options are limited.

At American Student Transportation, we understand how rough it is out there right now. That’s why we’re doing our part to provide career stability and ample benefits for our employees. Our company offers PTO, flexible scheduling, and even paid training. Almost anyone can learn how to become a bus driver and get their class B CDL, provided they pass the prerequisite background checks. If you’re looking for a new way to support yourself and your family, a career in school bus services with us is perfect for you.

However, you might wonder if working for a school bus contractor can be a long-term career option. As stated above, it seems that many companies don’t care enough about their employees to provide opportunities that pay well enough for one to feel financially secure, while also understanding an employee's time-related needs outside of that job. Is the group transportation services industry just as heartless?

While we can’t speak for every student transportation services company out there, we can say for sure that’s not us. Working for American Student Transportation is a wonderful way to make a stable living, build skills in a respected career field, and to do so on your own time. Below, we outline what exactly it is we do to give our employees this stability and flexibility, as well as what it can mean for your future job with us.

Caring For Our Workers Is What We Do Best

At American Student Transportation, we know that at the end of the day, the best way to ensure your continued employment is through respectable financial compensation and scheduling flexibility. After all, it’s very hard to feel happy with a job that doesn’t pay well, and it’s even harder to feel happy with a job that won’t work with your schedule.

We want you to feel satisfied working for us because we care. We’re not out to use you to make a buck. We’re out to build a crew of passionate and dedicated bus drivers that are genuinely happy in what they do. We want to make sure our drivers are content in their careers, and they want to stay with us for the long-term. We feel the best way to ensure this is through solid pay and flexibility. We offer:

●        Competitive pay, plus a sign-on bonus, paid training, and PTO | As stated in our opening paragraphs, we go above and beyond to ensure our workers feel financially stable working with us. From paying to your class B CDL training to giving you a sizable bonus just for signing on with us, the initial financial benefits we offer can help you feel financially stable right out of the gate, and since our pay is industry-competitive, you know that you aren’t being shortchanged.

●        A driving schedule that works around your needs | Are you unable to drive a certain day because your other job always schedules you for it? No problem. Just let us know ahead of time, and you’ll be good to go. At American Student Transportation, we pride ourselves on our flexible scheduling process. Drive and make money on your own time. We’ll work with you to create a schedule that works with any other jobs you may have, which allows you to commit yourself to each one fully and feel more stable when it comes to your job performance.

●        An investment in your skill-set | Not everyone can drive a school bus. Possessing a unique skill automatically sets yourself apart from your peers in other disciplines, and it demonstrates to your other employers, if you currently hold multiple jobs, that you care about your personal advancement. Learning how to drive a school bus may also make it easier to learn how to drive other commercial vehicles. All of this can mean greater financial success for you as you expand your career possibilities and secure your current ones. Think of investing in training with us for your Class B CDL as going back to school, except you’re the one who gets paid for it!
