Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Arriva full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good Money for the Job
Worked with some great people

Cons

Management were oblivious to Staff Concerns
You were disciplined at the drop of a hat
To get anywhere near justice you had to fight
Union reps were worse than useless

Advice to Management

Listen more to your staff than you ever did to your passengers
Get off your backsides and get out at least once a week to do a driving shift, see it from the other side
