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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember we have lives and families outside of work.

    Recommends

  2. Avoid, Stay on the dole or find a different employer...

    I have been working at Arriva

    Pros

    There are none which concern Arriva. However, TfL will give you a staff pass for free travel in London.

    Cons

    Management will harrass, bully, intimidate and give disiplinaries for the most trivial of events, iBus controllers will talk to you like excrement. New drivers start on £9.30 ph, one of the lowest rates in London for PCV driver!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You lot need to wake up to the frontline staff's concerns and start listening and working with us instead of smashing us round the head with your rule book. Have you not noticed the low moral of your staff?

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
