I have been working at West Des Moines Community Schools part-time (Less than a year)
They offer wonderful benefits, co workers are amazing! Buses are newer and kept in good shape for the most part. Feels like a family. Training is tip top!
If you are wanting a job with overtime or consistency this may not be for you. Day to day hrs can change, definitely not 40 hrs a week, field trips can be an additional source of income but they are by no means something you can count on.
Advice to Management
Kind of a "clique-y" environment, some workers seem to get perks and more trips. Awarding employees who seldom miss work/call in with more trips would be nice rather then giving trips to those who miss quite a bit.
