This is the seventh feature in our "Workers Wanted" series, highlighting businesses in and around Great Falls that are hiring. This week, we are featuring Big Sky Bus Lines.
Big Sky Bus Lines has quite a few positions available including bus drivers, bus attendants, as well as positions in the shop.
General manager Barbie Stucker has been involved with Big Sky Bus Lines for a long time. Her father owned the company before it was resold. “It’s always been sort of a family business. We’ve been here a long time and we’ve got a great group of people that work here,” she explained.
For people who are retired or are looking for part-time hours, school bus driving might be perfect for you.
“Somebody who wants to work part time, likes working a part time job, likes having time off during the middle of the day, a lot of those options are available” Stucker said.
With a positive environment, many current employees have nothing but positive reviews to say about their positions, including driver William Cox. “Just being around the kids makes your day, you know. That’s the way it is with the bus driving, I feel if you have a route to where you get to see them growing up from like kindergarten to sixth grade, that makes it even better”
Stucker added, “For the most part if you talk to the drivers, a lot of them do like transporting kids and they like having a part time job and they like feeling like they are making a difference.”
With training included, you can count on getting everything you need to be successful; Stucker said, “We do pay them for training while they’re learning to get their CDL’s. We help them through the process so anyone can apply."
Individuals interested in driving school bus part-time must have a good driving record. Possession of a commercial driving license is not required to apply. The company provides the training necessary to qualify for a CLASS B interstate license with passenger endorsement & pays for your D.O.T physical and pre-employment drug and alcohol testing.
