    Overall a good company to work for as a bus driver.

    Pros- Approachable management, fair and friendly
    - Free travel for you and a nominee (London only)
    - Uniform provided, relaxed style compared to other employers
    - Good rates of pay ( unsociable hours and overtime well compensated )

    Cons- Little opportunity for promotion
    - Shift and weekend work
    - Current employees entering service on much lower rates of pay then few years ago.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Professional Bus Driver

    Professional Bus Driver (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat company, professionally run, world class driving training. Strong emphasis on meeting targets for routes.

    ConsAs a driver you are expected to take reponsibility for a lot more than just driving. Sometimes the drive to meet route targets can push safety considerations and provide a stressful time for drivers who seem to be always the ones who are wrong when in fact on many occassions they are right.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreatment of drivers should be more equitable. Controllers of routes desperately need people management skills and an understanding of how important the customer is.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
