Bus Drivers Positions Available PDF Print E-mail

Have you ever thought about looking for a part time job, but you can’t find anything that pays well for your time? How about a part time profession that offers the benefit of a retirement plan? How about a job that pays you year round (when contracted) even when work is not required? Well we may have the solution for you and no experience is necessary!


The Washington Community School District is looking to fill open regular route and substitute bus driver positions.


This could be a great job for a parent who wants to be on the same schedule as their child’s school schedule, that semi-retired person who wants to earn some extra spending money, or even a person that likes going to home (non-conference) athletic events for free as a perk of employment. Starting regular route wage is $20.48/hour and averages around 3hrs or $61.44/day.


We use updated material to help you study and pass your CDL written testing as well as classroom and in the bus training to complete your CDL testing for the Iowa Department of Transportation.


There are a few requirements though. Applicants must be able to complete/pass the following items:

  • Pass a DOT Physical
  • Pass a background check with the following items:
    • Acceptable Driving History
    • Child/Dependent Adult Abuse Check
    • Criminal History Check
  • Applicants must pass a Pre-employment drug/alcohol screening and be subject to random drug and alcohol screening throughout their employment.

Additional State of Iowa mandated training within 6 months of passage of the above items is required.


Washington Community Schools offers paid training and we are currently offering a $1,500.00 sign-on bonus for new drivers who will take on a regular route and a $750.00 sign on bonus for new substitute drivers. Bonus is paid in 4 installments during the first year as benchmarks are met, and a driving contract is required. Bonus applies to new drivers that have not been employed by the WCSD in the past 5 years.
