    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.

    I worked at Arriva full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The money and overtime was the best pro

    Cons

    the management and how they treated their staff, especially assuming you are always in the wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your tail ends, get out on the road at least once a month do a shift driving, see what your drivers put up with, and not just a short shift or day shift, do a long shift, a night shift, really find out out what your drivers go through!!
