Bus Driver Job Fair - March 9

Bus Driver Job Fair - March 9

The Wenatchee School District is hosting a job fair for bus drivers on Saturday, March 9, from 9 AM to noon at the transportation department building, located at 1201 Millerdale Ave, Wenatchee. The job fair aims to fill open positions for drivers and substitute drivers. 

Additional drivers are needed to cover for staff on leave and to ensure that there are enough drivers available for the upcoming busy spring sports and field trip season and into the next school year. Jennifer Sea, the district's transportation director, said the district is looking to fill a training class as soon as possible. 

During the job fair, attendees can apply in person, meet drivers and transportation staff, and even test drive a bus. "We wanted to provide people with a chance to test drive a career as a driver. By providing them an opportunity to get behind the wheel of a school bus and drive a little ways in our parking lot, they can get a sense of what it feels like," said Sea.

Being a school bus driver is a great full or part-time job that contributes to education in the community. It's perfect for retirees, parents with children in the school district, or anyone looking for additional income. WSD driver Don Talbot, or "Mr. Don" as he's known to the students who ride his bus, enjoys his retirement while working as a part-time driver for the district with full benefits. "I love this job— my fellow drivers, students, and all the management staff. We have a servant's heart."

Drivers enjoy competitive pay starting at $24.96 per hour plus full medical and dental benefits. Training is paid, and driving for the district includes a flexible schedule with summers and holidays off. Optional weekends and evening shifts are available. Interested candidates can also apply on WSD’s transportation department website
