    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

    you get a free oyster card but thats after a long wait

    I have been working at Stagecoach full-time

    Pros

    location of garage is good as i live in the east london area,travelling to the garage is the difficult at all as a bus route goes right by it

    Cons

    if you have kids,not a great company to work for as they want you to work all hours under the sun,early jobs middles and later and sign on times and finish times are all over the place

    Advice to Management

    make life easier for the spare drivers who keep getting undervalued on a daily basis

    Pros

    The security of working such a huge company, excellent holiday entitlement, strong sense of camaraderie among office staff.

    Cons

    Complete lack of dialogue between management and staff, red tape, cramped office conditions, horrible "them and us" type atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    More communication with "lesser" staff would be highly beneficial. At Stagecoach, it's incredible easy to feel lost in the corporate machine, and you'll never feel valued by those pulling the strings.

    I worked at Stagecoach full-time

    Pros

    Days off, and finishing your shift.

    Cons

    No prospects, no management recognition. Too much responsibility as a driver, for little pay.....

    Advice to Management

    The management at stagecoach in South Wales (Cwmbran) depot and possibly the company as a whole, need to have more people skills or at least be educated enough to acknowledge the importance of the people they employ. After all they are the face of the company. Look after your employees correctly, this includes wages, moral, respect, and career prospects, and they will want to work for you. Lose any of these and you will have drivers leaving for a better and more rewarding career.

    Pros

    Very very poor company. You are a number/ bus monkey. l had to leave work partway through my shift.My son was admitted to intensive care. I left to be with him, he was put on a general ward after four days he went on a general ward, l returned to work to face a disaplinary for absentism? ( They didn't even get spelling right on my nasty letter! They are soulless morons. Who will try to own you, you will become a ' nothing' a body behind a wheel,

    Cons

    Avoid this company at all costs, you will be forced to loose your self respect and familys health. BULLIES.

    Advice to Management

    None!.. you know your crimes.
