You're In the Driver's Seat!

You’re In the Driver’s Seat - Test Drive and Interview Event - April 27 from 9-11 a.m.

Join us on Saturday, April 27, for a yellow school bus driving open house from  9-11 a.m. in the Solon Middle School parking lot (6835 S.O.M. Center Road, Solon). 

Driving a school bus is a great job for parents, retirees and anyone looking for meaningful part-time work! Being a bus driver requires specialized training but it is easier than most people think

You can try it out for yourself during the You’re In the Driver’s Seat event. This is a simple way to see if being a bus driver is right for you! 

Once aboard the Solon school bus, you will be able to see the view of the road from the driver’s seat, look through the seven rear- and side-view mirrors and take a test drive with one of our On-Board Instructors on the Solon Middle School property. 

To participate, you need to be 21 and a licensed driver. Bring your driver’s license to the event and arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot to register. To reserve your time behind the wheel, pre-register by clicking here! Driving slots will be assigned in the order they are received and walk-ins will be permitted as slots are available. 

Driving a bus for the Solon Schools has many benefits:

    • With split shift work days, the job offers a flexible schedule

    • Paid training (classroom and on-board) and full-time benefits.

    • Competitive pay, with hourly rates ranging from $19.77-$26.45 based on experience

If you are ready to join our team now, you can apply at any time at Solon City School District - Frontline Recruitment or interview on the spot on the 27th!
