    Pros

    Great management, time off allowed whenever

    Cons

    No employee benefits, no paid time off

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management. Owners are doing a fantastic job. Adding employee benefits would be a step in the right direction.

    Pros

    Not a single thing !

    Cons

    Management a joke all they want to do is point the finger. They never back their drivers and have no duty of care. Your an easy target expected to put up with people spitting swearing and abusing you without saying or doing anything if you do your in trouble. If you like a managment that uses the big stick this is the company for you. HR should be asking why so many experienced drivers are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Back your drivers stop the big stick approach

    Pros

    Good, firendly colleagues at the lower levels. Good pay for easy work. If your face fits you will go far.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and follow all of the procedures set by group regardless of cost. You operate a big, money earning business so act like it.

    If you do your job you will get left alone

    Waited at least 10 months to go on a route
    Management is always against you and never by your side
    Passengers

    Stick by your drivers, listen to your drivers, don't max us out because that makes us too tired which is bad because we focus less and let us have some family time
