Durham School Services hiring 60 new school bus drivers

SPOKANE, Wash. — A lot is still unknown about the upcoming school year, but the hiring process has begun for bus drivers.

Durham School Services in Spokane is hiring 60 new school bus drivers this year.

If you think you have what it takes, now is the time to apply.

I had the opportunity last week to see what it was like behind the wheel.

To get properly trained, you’ll take an online class and then get about 20 hours driving experience.

You’ll spend time on an obstacle course out at Joe Albi stadium and then on the streets of Spokane.

General manager for Durham School services, Rhonda McLellan, said currently there is no deadline to apply.

The starting wage for the job is $18.50 an hour and everything you need for licensing and training is paid for.

McLellan said the job is a difficult one, but also extremely rewarding when you get to make that connection with students.
