Why Work as a Blaine, Minnesota School Bus Driver?

A school bus driver job near Minneapolis is a wonderful way to make an impact on one’s community. For many drivers, this is their favorite part of their job; after all, what’s better than brightening a kid’s day? While this is exactly the kind of attitude we love to see in our drivers, we at American Student Transportation understand that, for many people, driving a bus can be a taxing job. Therefore, it’s a job deserving of great benefits.

As much as school bus drivers work to lift students up, school bus driver jobs in Minneapolis can be a large investment of time and energy. This investment should come with compensation.

This is why our company offers:

  • Up to 40 hours of PTO each school year
  • Up to a $1,750 sign-on bonus
  • Paid training
  • Weekly and competitive pay
  • Very flexible hours/seasons
  • A supportive and friendly team
  • Employee events, such as potlucks, Christmas parties, highway cleanup and lunch, and an end-of-the-year BBQ

Good School Bus Drivers are Hard to Find

Driving students to school is no easy task; it takes a rare person—somebody with exactly the right combination of steadfastness and emotional sensitivity. A good school bus driver is assertive and unflinching when it comes to safety procedures, but soft and tactful enough to help work through social conflicts that arise. They must be disciplined enough to keep their eyes on the road, but pleasant enough to deal with fun-loving kids.

Above all, though, they must have a genuine love for children. They must understand that these small kids are our future.

All of that in one person is a tall order, to say the least. Because people that fit all these qualifications are so hard to find, we at American Student Transportation cherish our drivers for the rarities that they are. By taking a Minnesota school bus driver job with us, you’re joining a company in which employee appreciation is deeply rooted in the workplace culture.

  • Our frequent employee events, like end-of-year barbeques, foster a tight knit community.
  • Weekly pay means finances are easy. Very few of our competitors offer this benefit. We choose to because we know how valuable good bus drivers are.
  • Tough schedule? No problem. We offer flexible hours. We want our employees to be happy working for us; we know that you might not be able to work at exactly the same time each week.

Aside from our Minnesota driver jobs, we seek people who want to transport religious groups, charter buses, or summer camps. We have so many employment opportunities that there’s bound to be something that fits your schedule.
