    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.

    Large company, opportunity to travel/branch out.

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

    Pros

    I cannot see any other than it is only a job and helps to pay a living but other than that nothing.

    Cons

    The staff turnover is very high & that fact proves that they don't care about the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Change the bullying culture.


  10. "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.
