    I worked at Stagecoach full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The drivers all help each other out,the majority of passengers are nice people and a pleasure to be with. The pay is good, although you tend to work long hours.

    Cons

    Drivers never get any support from the management and you are automatically blamed for any accident until you are proven innocent. The hours can be very long on local service as the don't use a tachograph and are not under the same rules.

    Advice to Management

    value your drivers, without them you have no business.


  2. "Not the best or the worst"

    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.

    Backstabbing staff members looking to worm their way up the ladder

    Advice to Management

    Clear out a lot of higher management and replace with people who know the job and respect their staff

    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

    I worked at Stagecoach full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work out on road on your own
    Manage your own time
    Meet and help new people every day
    Nice to be driving everyday
    Good bunch of drivers

    Cons

    Lack of development for new drivers
    Erratic rota never same shift in 3 days
    Unpaid dinner break
    Poor customer service training for many driver and managers

    Advice to Management

    There has been 1000's of pounds of customers and drivers possessions that have gone missing from lost property. The investigation had shown incompetence and fraud from many managers this still hasn't been resolved for the customers and people. These people are still in their jobs.
    Also poor leadership and management to manage the staff effectively and competently

    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

    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.
