From the Washtenaw Intermediate School District
Washtenaw Intermediate School District will host a second Bus Driver Job Fair on Saturday, Aug. 7, from 9 a.m.-noon at WISD’s Teaching and Learning Center Building, 1819 S. Wagner Road, between Liberty and Scio Church roads, in Scio Township.
The intermediate district hosted a fair on July 31 as well, as it works to fill more than 100 positions for full-time, part-time and substitute bus drivers for school districts in Washtenaw County for this school year.
Pay starts at $13 per hour with benefits and retirement (and a lump-sum attendance incentive available) for full-time drivers. Part-time positions pay a flat rate of $15.25 per hour; benefits are not included.
“Free training will be provided. If successful candidates work for at least 90 days, they will receive compensation for the training,” said WISD Human Resources Director Winnie Garrett.
A valid driver’s license and a good driving record is required. Desirable qualities include confidence in driving large vehicles and ability to interact effectively with students and parents.
Garrett said applicants can also apply online.
