school buses

School buses at the Bend-La Pine School District transportation yard in Bend.

Bend-La Pine Schools, in an effort to hire school bus drivers, is inviting people to test drive a bus Wednesday at 501 SE Second St. in Bend and at La Pine Middle School. 

The hiring events will give people the opportunity to drive through an obstacle course with an on-the-spot job interview from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Wages start at $20 per hour for regular drivers and on-the-job, paid training is provided to people who do not have a commercial driver’s license, according to the school district. Drivers who work four or more hours each day will be eligible for benefits. 

Other events are scheduled for July 28 at the same locations.
