It appears Stock Transportation is hiring. 

The company responsible for school busing in the Halifax area has faced harsh criticism after a tough first week of class. After drastic route changes were developed over the summer, parents last week complained of buses showing up late or in some cases not at all. 

Now the company has posted notice of a job fair to be held in Dartmouth on Thursday, Sept. 13. Stock is hiring school bus driver, a bilingual router and an operations specialist focusing on routing. 

Last weekend, Stock said it was hard at work updating routes to ensure the first week's bussing issues were remedied. 

Global News reached out to Stock on Monday asking if the company was facing staffing problems, but no response was given. 

Last week Stock's regional manager apologized for the issues. Nova Scotia's education minister also announced an internal review of the busing problems.
