Need for School Bus Drivers & Substitute Bus Drivers

Looking for a part-time job with flexible hours? Like many schools around the region, Mohonasen is facing a serious shortage of bus drivers.

Our bus drivers typically work two shifts each day, from 6:45-8:45 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. There is also need for a driver interested in working a 2:30-4:30 p.m. shift only. Salary is per contract (plus health benefits for those working 20 hours/week). This is a great job for reliable drivers who like working with kids in our community and could use a part-time income.
