    Current Employee - Bus Driver in Bath, England (UK)

    I have been working at FirstGroup full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Obviously the free bus travel is one great perk, but I love just driving around, there's a sense of freedom. I like the flexibility of the shift work, and they do have a great rewards package!

    Cons

    The training is very intense, they pile a lot of information on top of you within a short period but if you can keep up then its no bother.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organisation of the training could have been a little better, once I passed all my tests my licence should have been taken off me but wasn't so I had to hand it in to the Staff Manager at the station.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at FirstGroup in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    interview did not go well. One of the company representatives fell asleep when I was answering his questions which made the interview very difficult to do. The lack of respect for an interviewee made it extremely difficult for me to care about the company or the role.
