MANCHESTER (KMOV.com) -

Getting 11,000 students safely to and from class each day is a big job.

Right now the Parkway School District needs help doing it. The district is looking to hire school bus drivers.

"We want someone who likes kids, enjoys kids, and is gonna be a safe individual, responsible and a good role model," said Will Rosa, the Director of Transportation for the Parkway School District.

"It’s turned out to be one of the best jobs I've ever had," said  Jerry Paetzholtz, a sixth-year bus driver.

After being self-employed for 25 years, he could no longer afford health insurance.

With benefits like paid medical coverage, dental and vision, sick leave, vacation time and a retirement plan, Paetzholtz sat down in the driver's seat.

He recommends you do the same and says you need to act fast. 

"Don't think too hard because the jobs go quick," he said.

No experience is necessary. 

"We can train you to be a very, very safe bus driver. We're very good at training so don't be intimidated by the bus size," said Rosa.

Starting pay for Parkway bus drivers is between $15 and $18 an hour.
