They do not discriminate, at all.
When I first started working 3 years ago it was ideal. They paid for my training and helped me get my CDL Class B license to drive a school bus. Even though a school bus driver is only a part time position, there was always extra work on charters, field trips and school sports runs to keep you busy and earn extra money. However, over the past year, I have seen an ugly side to the company when it comes to favoritism and discipline of employees. Some who deserve it get, while others don't. And those who don't deserve punishment are forced into a segregated class of outcasts with bull's eyes painted on their backs while the favorites just do what they please without repercussion.
I have been working full time for First Transit. They give me a lot of hours, so you can make a decent pay check.
I am over age 50 (actually 57) and I really enjoy working for this company.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
