To combat driver shortage, Valley Transit is announcing hiring bonuses of up to $5,000.
The public transportation service in the Fox Cities says its offering the sign-on bonus for applicants who already possess a commercial driver's license.
“We need customer service-oriented drivers to continue providing the essential services that are connecting our community to jobs, resources, entertainment and, especially as we approach back-to-school season, educational institutions,” said Valley Transit general manager Ron McDonald. “We’ve are hoping this hiring bonus will help us quickly attract candidates that can hit the ground running as soon as possible.”
Those interested in becoming bus drivers are not required to have their CDL to apply but will need to be able to possess and maintain a Wisconsin Class B Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) with the passenger endorsement and a Federal Medical Card as a condition of employment.
