Working at M.L. Bradley
At M. L. Bradley Ltd, we employ only the best. The safety of our passengers is the heart of our company and as a result we place special emphasis on the training of our employees. Our training exceeds the provincial requirement and all drivers are carefully screened for this critical role.
The atmosphere amongst the drivers is very collegial as they organize various activities outside of their daily duties. The stress of dealing with numerous school schedules, parental requests, traffic and weather delays can be quite challenging. Yet, despite these challenges, our turnover rate is surprisingly low. In fact, we have numerous employees who have been with us for more than 25 years.
Andrew Deavy, our head Driver Trainer along with Lisa Bonner have designed an ongoing program that strives to continuously improve and create driver awareness. Mandatory refresher courses, safety training and workshops for behavioral situations such as bullying and harassment are offered throughout the school year and the driver's career.
All of our employees must adopt the mission statement that was designed by Lorne Bradley, which states that their goal is to "transport students in the safest, most efficient and amicable way possible."
