The Greater Dayton RTA will let you get behind the wheel of a new career—literally—during an interactive hiring event June 10-11 at the University of Dayton Arena. Prospective bus drivers will be offered the chance to test drive the agency’s big buses and/or small non-CDL buses and get a feel for what it means to be a bus driver. RTA is looking to fill over 50 CDL bus driver positions and over 35 non-CDL driver positions.
The RTA will conduct interviews June 10 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., and June 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at UD Arena. Candidates must bring and hold a valid Driver’s License, along with a copy of their resume. After successfully completing an interview, RTA trainers will be on hand to assist applicants with a vehicle test drive, and ensure the ride goes smoothly. By getting a feel for what it’s like to drive one of the agency’s top-of-the-line vehicles, the hope is candidates will feel more connected to their future career.
The starting wage for CDL bus drivers is $18 per hour and after 7 years of employment make $30 per hour. Non-CDL drivers start at $15.75 per hour. In addition to starting pay, RTA offers outstanding benefits, including: a 14% contribution to your state pension account; up to $26,000 a year toward family medical insurance; dental insurance; paid time off; access to on-site fitness centers; and a great team atmosphere where you are respected and valued for your contributions. For those not able to attend the career fair, you can apply for open positions on RTA’s career website, www.iriderta.org/careers.
