Valley Transit is bringing back its successful hiring bonus incentive program.

The next five qualified candidates with a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL) will receive a $5,000 sign-on bonus for full-time new hires and $2,500 will be offered for part-time positions.

Last year when the company offered the incentive, they say it worked.

“We've seen an increase in applications because of the bonus and several positions have been filled. While we are pleased with the progress we've made, we are still actively seeking five more candidates with a valid CDL to join our team and continue the positive momentum,” said Valley Transit general manager, Ron McDonald.

The reinstated hiring bonus now includes part-time maintenance utility workers in addition to full-time and part-time bus drivers because these positions require a valid Class A or Class B CDL with a passenger endorsement and no air brake restriction.

Working for Valley Transit provides employees with a comprehensive benefits package that includes enrollment in the Wisconsin Retirement System and the opportunity to work for an organization that is supportive, inclusive, and making a positive impact on its community.

Those interested in bus driver or maintenance utility roles are not required to have their CDL to apply but will need to be able to acquire and maintain one along with a federal medical card as a condition of employment.
