Dean Transportation is hosting a job fair on Saturday, Oct. 5, hoping to recruit several dozen new bus drivers in the area.

Thanks to a strong economy, Dean Transportation faces heavy competition for workers.  The starting pay for bus drivers ranges from $15 to $16 per hour, and the company provides the training needed.

On-the-spot job interviews and background checks are planned for Saturday.  Whether you're a parent looking to line up your work schedule with your child's school or a retiree looking for part-time work, it's a great opportunity.

The company provides special education as well as general transportation service for school districts across Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
