EVSC to Host Bus Driver Career Fair

Are you looking for a career change? Driving our future with part-time hours and full-time benefits is the message that the EVSC’s Office of Transportation wants people to know about school bus drivers. To help get that message out and to find new drivers, the EVSC is hosting a Bus Driver Career Fair on Tuesday, June 11, from 8 a.m. to noon in the lower lot near First Avenue at Central High School.

The career fair will give interested individuals an opportunity to get behind the wheel of a school bus and talk with EVSC bus transportation management. EVSC trainers also will be available to answer any questions related to driving a school bus such as work schedule, licensing, school bus laws and more. In addition, the EVSC will be holding on-the-spot interviews for interested individuals.

As a school bus driver, individuals work from approximately 6 to 8 a.m. and again from 2 to 4 p.m. with additional hours available, if interested. Drivers receive full time benefits such as medical, dental and vision insurance; life insurance; retirement; paid holidays and paid sick days. New hires also receive paid training.

To attend the event, individuals must have a current driver’s license. Once hired, the EVSC will train individuals and assist them in getting their CDL.
