    Pros

    Olympic games...and other outhouse activities

    Cons

    Attitude of some supervisors,,, working conditions

    Advice to Management

    Complaints from member's of public....why not have the training managers in house one week and then doing service work the next week this way you can train twice asmany people...then they can see what a driver really has to go through before getting taking off the road for nonsense complaints

    Local location so fuel costs low and staff bus supplied to bring you to work on an early shift

    Pros

    value employees very flexible lovely people and management great family feel excellent remuneration believe in their employees and give freedom to develop

    Cons

    1 person to do the work of 5 - too streamlined an old culture is still too dominating for relatively few challengers to overpower too much experience with buses and not enough with customers no formal pro-active investment in the development and training of people to keep them current

    Advice to Management

    get someone at the top that doesn't know buses, but knows customers. identify skill-set gaps at every level of management, particularly to do with customer-centric thinking, and give them the time and support to develop them ask people to keep a log of what they're trying to achieve and what is blocking them from achieving it, and change their support levels to help them

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Extra weeks holiday after 5 years service, payed on time every week,

    Cons

    Is to much unpaid time on the shifts, management style appears to be more about breaking staff moral than anything else..shift work as to be expected in bus driving but not well structured shift pattens.

    Advice to Management

    losing to many good staff by not caring about them day to day and with style of management . stagecoach attitude seems to be they are easily replaced but this is a quite short sighted view considering nature of the job.

    Pros

    I cannot see any other than it is only a job and helps to pay a living but other than that nothing.

    Cons

    The staff turnover is very high & that fact proves that they don't care about the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Change the bullying culture.
