At First Student, we believe that education offers students and their families the foundation for productive and successful lives. We take great pride in our ability to support education by making sure children have safe, friendly and reliable transportation to and from school.
As the leading school transportation solutions provider in North America, First Student moves more passengers per day than all U.S. airlines combined. We know the value in leveraging our best practices, technologies and processes to deliver quality transportation solutions. What sets us apart is our desire to build close, trusted partnerships with the districts we serve.
We recognize that with every stop, we have the ability to positively impact each student’s day, so they arrive at school ready to learn and be inspired. It’s something we’re committed to doing today, tomorrow, together.

HAS THE APPEARANCE OF BEING AGE FRIENDLY, BUT ALWAYS HAS AN EXCUSE TO KEEP FROM HIRING SENIORS
Getting hired was the easy part, but no support afterward. Problems were always the driver's fault. No solutions were ever offered. Take it or leave it attitude. Compensation was never based on actual time invested, but on some unknow time frame that First Student had established. They did not address safety concerns from drivers.
Most of the older drivers ignore you and don’t speak. Management is only slightly better. Poor morale and culture. Understaffed at all levels.
Part-Time job flexible hours. Good pay and Weekends off. I love to work with children so this is a wonderful job for me.
Because you have to pay $200.00 to get licenced and there are a lot of other fees.
First Student seeks excellent drivers to safely deliver our nation's school children to and from school. They don't care if you are short, tall, skinny or fat...skill is what they are looking for. Nice people, good wages.
Denotes a Certified Age Friendly Employer
Please click here to send us feedback.
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.
