Pace Bus is hiring at South Suburban College (South Holland, IL) — South Suburban College (SSC) and Pace Bus have announced another pre-hire event to offer a free Class B Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) course for the next generation of professional bus operators in the South Side region of Chicago. The college and transit agency will offer a customized two-week course to help qualified applicants obtain their CDL permit. To eliminate financial barriers that prevent students from actively pursuing and completing the program, Pace will cover the costs of tuition, training, books, fees, and other expenses associated with the program. Additionally, SSC, in partnership with the Workforce Equity Initiative grant, will offer a completion incentive for participants who complete the two-week course.

On Monday, July 15, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., SSC will host a pre-employment event for job applicants to meet with Pace staff. During the 3-hour event, applicants will complete a screening process in the MB Financial banking room on SSC’s main campus, which includes completing the application, a screening 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 Illinois Driving Record Summaries) with no more than two violations or tickets in the past five years. Candidates are responsible for the cost of the MVR, which is $20.

Test results will be available 2-4 days after the event, when candidates will be required to complete an Illinois Department of Transportation physical and drug screening. Pace Bus will cover the cost of these exams. Candidates who pass these exams will be enrolled in a training course held at SSC’s main campus. Qualified candidates who complete the two-week course will move on to six weeks of on-the-job training with Pace.

For more information or to register for the SSC and Pace Class B CDL program, contact the SSC Continuing Education Program at (708) 596-2000, ext. 5723.
