  8.  

    Daimler Buses NA-Greensboro. Staff is back biting, troublemakers. Management needs to crack the whip to stop it.

    I worked at Orion Bus

    Pros

    Paycheck was good, but personnel talked about salary to others, leading others to confront me about my paycheck and how I "didnt deserve my job"?

    Cons

    No confidentiality in Human Resources, a lot of cattiness, back biting. Three employees meet every hour, top of the hour, to smoke for 35 minutes and then ask for overtime. Management needs to come down hard on these folks. Alot of gossips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crack the whip, you have some hard working employees that are caught in the middle of the gossipers and are victims of thier viciousness.
