Opportunities for Advancement

All UMass Transit employees are UMass students and start out as drivers, but there are many promotional positions available to student employees. For instance, you can become a field trip driver, a trainer, a radio operator, a driver supervisor, or a student staff member. These are supervisory positions, and they can help you gain valuable experience that future employers will be looking for. This also allows for a very diverse work-week, and creates more money-making opportunities.

If you want an extraordinary job unlike any other on campus, join UMass Transit, the team that moves UMass!
