    I have been working at Greyhound

    Pros

    Traveling and meeting new people. Getting a chance to converse and congregate with your fellow co workers. Getting a chance to see the country while getting paid.

    Cons

    Dealing with management. Poor equipment. Unruly passengers. Lack of security. Pay not up to par. Filling out paperwork constantly to get money that you earned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to listen to the rank and file. Start getting more input from those that do the job everyday. Allow local management to manage which will create a more comfortable work environment and boost morale.

    Former Employee - Dispatch Supervisor II in Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Dispatch Supervisor II in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Greyhound full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very hard working and dedicated co workers, + I don"t have to work under the horrible conditions anymore.

    Cons

    Lack of reward and promotion , Treats their employees rudely and if you are a dispatcher, lack of reward, upper management takes highest profit., determines employees evaluation numbers before they even get it. From Director to upper Management this is a very poorly managed Company. too much mixing buisness with pleasure. Alot of retaliation if you speak up for the good of the customers , bus drivers, terminals,h.r told me not to take it personal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave or retire so it will get better. Praying for a buy out. and clean house. give your drivers and dispatchers better resources.

    I worked at Greyhound full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The employees have an outstanding commitment to the customers. Their loyalty is unbelievable and their knowledge of the small towns and cities up and down the coast of California is to be admired.

    Cons

    The employee benefits program is not good, the employees must take a physical or suffer an expensive penalty. The compensation is not to the highest level when combined with the cost of insurance it does not even out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management find a more inclusive and helpful insurance plan.
