Test Drive a School Bus in Michigan City

(Michigan City, IN) - Michigan City Area School District is looking to hire support staff in a very hands-on way.


The school district offers school bus test drives and even a little on-site training to recruit new drivers. Anyone interested in driving a bus can get over the intimidation factor by hopping behind the wheel with a trainer onboard to help. The try-outs take place Saturday in the parking lot of the Service Building on Woodland Avenue.


If driving is not your thing, the district’s test kitchen will also be open at the same location. Foodservice workers are also in demand.


There is no obligation for trying out either job. And the first 20 attendees will receive a free t-shirt.


The pay rate for food service starts at just over $13.00/hour with possible bonuses; bus drivers start at just over $20.00/hour.


The hiring event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Service Building on 1100 S. Woodland Ave. in Michigan City.
