"Schmitty and Sons is a great company to work for. Management is fair, understanding and best of all, they back their drivers. They treat everyone with care and respect. They have high expectations but in this industry, it's necessary! Safety First!

Our buses are well taken care of and in the cold months, our buses get started for us so they are toasty warm and the windows are all cleared of snow and frost! As a full time employee, health benefits are available. We're an employee owned company so it's a win all round.

I've worked for other school bus companies and Schmitty and Sons is by far the best! Management is ALWAYS available to listen and help with any issue you may have. I'm very proud to be an employee owner at Schmitty and Sons!"

“I started with the company back in October 2016 in the wash stall at Eagan MVTA. Great people to work with, very willing to train you! I moved up to a transit operator August 2017 and have loved it ever since! Employees are very nice and all the customers/passengers are awesome! Great company to work for. Atmosphere in general is amazing. Can’t wait for more years to come!! Everyone is very easy to talk to if you have an issue, they go above and beyond to help you out!!”

“I have been a part-time Driver for Schmitty and Sons, in the Eagan transit garage for almost two years. As a semi-retiree, this is an incredible place to work. The availability of various shifts, and routes is exceptional for anyone whether you want to work full time, or part-time.

Equipment is very well maintained, and the supervisors, staff, drivers and mechanics are courteous and helpful.

All you need to do, is do your job safely, be responsible, be courteous and helpful to your passengers, and you will be well respected by all. It's a very rewarding career. Whether you want to drive a School Bus or a Transit route, work full time, or part time, Schmitty and Sons is worth looking into.”
