    I have been working at Arriva full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    meeting different members of the public, job security, love driving. being out and about rather then stuck in doors.

    Cons

    have no social life. find it hard to balance work life and family life. feel you dont have much support from management, you are just a number to them. no job safety (meaning you are left on your own, if you encounter someone violent there are no inspectors about in the evening to help you out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think should get more benefits when working weekends and bank holidays. would like to be appriciated more. would like more training so if wish to pursue into management would have neccesary experience for the role.

    I worked at Arriva full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    CEO is very good
    Management leads by example

    Cons

    Not a lot of training
    In the UK there is meritocracy, in other countries not at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some useless senior managers who are only interested in the title and their position and sponsoring their friends rather than really focusing on what the right thing for the company is
