It's a good job once you have enough seniority to have your own run and not be "on call"

Motorcoach Operator (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

ProsPay is good. Once you leave the bus station, you are on your own. Nobody looking over your shoulder. If you have a good bus, and good passengers, then you can really have a great day.

ConsIn all transportation, you are on call when you are first hired. Basically, at Greyhound, you have no life until you build up seniority. You are a slave to the telephone. You will not get to enjoy the holiday's, but they warn you about that when they hire you. Dealing with the traveling public can be frustrating also. Have to deal with drunks, mental, and just sometimes mean people.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is trying to turn things around because of the added pressure of Megabus and other bus lines. They should really try to turn the culture around. A lot of drivers look at passengers as "the enemy". These people pay to ride, not to be treated any kind of way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
