I have worked for Kensington Bus as a short bus driver and a caravan driver. I have to say the reveiw above about the drug testing being needed for the drivers is a false statement. Kensington does mandatory drug testing. DOT requires it and all drivers get randomly tested at any time,so the drivers are safe there. As far as the two women mentioned who work there they are nice enough and that's what counts. They do a good job keeping things in order there and they are quite busy most of the time. Running a bus company is hard work and these ladies have to keep many balls juggled up in the air . If they've gotton iritable at someone it's probably because that person did not follow standard safety procedure. If you do your job correctly no one will have reason to get upset with you. It's all about being a safe driver. This is something Kensington takes very seriously and they should! Shannon the owner keeps the buses in good shape . He is a mechanic himself and that's a plus. What I would say to the critic above is this you don't have to work there and if you don't like the rules, then leave. They are people lining up to take your job you obviosly don't appreciate.

I just had to answer this as I think previous reviewer is living in another world. I work there. First of all the pay for a small bus starts at $14/hr and for a large bus it's $17/hour.
You do get bonuses, you do get a little something extra for Christmas. The owner of that company is one of the most wonderful guys I know. Kensington buses aren't parked in lots any more than any other company's buses and if you are on the way home from your run isn't it a bit stupid and wasteful to run back to the bus yard, and come all the way back with your car?
You haven't met anyone from the company? Obviously you never attended one of the many SAFETY meetings they require then... maybe it's good that you got another job.

this is a respond to the other person who made a review,, dont get me wrong Shannon the owner is very nice, just a shame he dosnt really know whats going on behind his back, and the females he have running his business is the main reason why so many drivers and aides quit. I did leave for severalo reason but I do know that all they do at that compant is talk about each other between the main 2 females in the office and there paper works and routes are a mess. They never tell the driver about any changes or if there aides call out untill the last min when in route to the houses. As for bounces yea you get a 25-50 one for x mas but many companies give that as a attendance plus xmas dinners and so forth.
And again what about the buses being parked in the L Q stores during break hours or off hours, not to mention they really need to drug test some of the drivers, 2 to be exact.
They just need this as a reality check that they being watched at this company
