Senior drivers are no longer wanted.

Bus Driver (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Arriva full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBus pass and nominee bus pass. Weekly wages. Christmas bonus.

ConsNew drivers are on a lower rate, so any silly reason and you can be sacked, management are crap, no respect for drivers, the standarts we had 6 years ago are gone

Advice to Senior ManagementStart respecting drivers and also senior drivers, they are the driving force behind your profits.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Stressful and fraught, no sleep and crazy shifts

Bus Driver (Current Employee)
Guildford, England (UK)

I have been working at Arriva full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood Money for the Job
Worked with some great people

ConsManagement were oblivious to Staff Concerns
You were disciplined at the drop of a hat
To get anywhere near justice you had to fight
Union reps were worse than useless

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to your staff than you ever did to your passengers
Get off your backsides and get out at least once a week to do a driving shift, see it from the other side

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
