Pace Bus is hiring at South Suburban College

South Suburban College (SSC) and Pace Bus are hosting a customized two-week course to assist qualified applicants in obtaining a Class B Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) permit. A pre-hiring event will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday, June 17, at SSC in South Holland.

The training course is designed for the next generation of professional Pace bus operators in the South Suburbs. 

To remove financial barriers for students to pursue and complete the program actively, Pace will cover the costs of tuition, training, books, fees and other expenses associated with the program. In addition, SSC, in partnership with the Workforce Equity Initiative Grant, will provide a completion incentive for participants who complete the two-week course.

At the June 17 pre-hiring event, job seekers will meet with Pace staff. During the 3-hour event, applicants will complete a screening process in the MB Financial Bank Room on SSC’s Main Campus, 15800 State St. in South Holland. Participants will file an application, an assessment questionnaire, and a background check. 

All candidates must bring a valid Illinois driver’s license and a DMV or Secretary of State Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) (also called Driving Record Abstracts in Illinois) with no more than two infractions or tickets in the last five years. Candidates are responsible for the cost of the MVR, which is $20.

Assessment results will be available within days of the event when candidates must complete an Illinois Department of Transportation physical and drug screening. Pace Bus will cover the cost of these screenings. Candidates who pass these screenings will be enrolled in a training course that will take place at SSC. Qualified candidates who complete the two-week course will transition to six-week on-the-job training with Pace.
