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


    The pay isn't too bad, love the banter at work, at a point in the company where I am being acknowledged for my communication skills and and work with the community so am getting extra opportunities as a result. Also have two NVQ's which the company supported.


    Mostly the shift patterns, would not have been able to manage had my children been young, the hours can be long.
