    Pros

    Very professional and good transportation company. I enjoyed working for them when they operated the East Valley Paratransit Service from May of 2006 through June of 2012. Their senior management staff was a pleasure to work with in operating a very proficient and professional Paratransit service.

    Cons

    Veolia (Now Transdev) was not awarded the new contract to provide the service for reasons beyond their control. I really felt very good about the "team" of employee's we had working there
    from utility workers to the management staff. (Note: I did not know the current CEO when I worked
    at Veolia so I can't really rate him.)

    Advice to Management

    Always remember that for the most part employee's care about their job performance and like to be shown appreciation for a job well done. They also like to feel that they have a "voice" in their jobs and really work harder to help the company achieve their operational goals when management makes them feel that they are included in that success and values them individually and collectively in the process.

    Pros

    Clean yard, clean buses, nice coworkers, good friends. Took Road Supervisor just to get experience and bounce. Routes are nice. Arcadia is a nice yard.

    Cons

    More attention to paddles and trips than drivers. Splits too big, mandatory 6 days wears you down. Too gossipy. Drama. Played favorites. Lack of communication. Not paid enough to be a Road Supervisor. $12.30 to start as a Road Supervisor? Really? Management is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out soon or you'll be the next contract cut short.

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity for advancement. If you have a good idea, they will listen.

    Cons

    Transportation is a tough industry. They need to figure out how to last in this fast changing environment. Like any business, you must stay ahead of the curve.

    Pros

    Excellent, thoughtful management who really care about the people here. They take an old fashioned approach to solving problems which often results in a solution that is appropriate for the problem.

    Cons

    See pros: We are moving far too slow to achieve anything meaningful in the marketplace today. The average age of the company is about 15 years too old.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside! Hire some young people to carry the analysis needed to build a forward thinking strategy. Stop being reactive to current market trends and focus on what it is that we really do to add value!

    Pros

    Insurance, stable schedule and 401k

    Cons

    Lack of communication, management more interested in petty issues like how much time someone is logged online, road supervisors making less than those we supervised, backstabbing is a major issue, putting in long hours and working hard and not getting the recognition deserved. Salary exempt employees are treated as if we were hourly employees, and not being paid while on administrative leave despite federal regulations stating otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Quit worrying about the small things, give a damn about you road supervisors and being petty about issues that in the grand scheme of things really don't matter.
