    I have been working at Stagecoach full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you do your job you will get left alone
    Once on rota, you know what you are doing
    People you work with are amazing and a good laugh

    Cons

    Waited at least 10 months to go on a route
    Management is always against you and never by your side
    Passengers
    Some duties are too long, no social life or family life
    Pay structure is rubbish compared to other companies

    Advice to Management

    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

    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

    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

    There is nothing to say about any pros, there are none.

    They treat there staff like something you would step in. If they receive a compliant about you true or false the complainant is telling the truth.

    They all need to go on man management courses and start treating there staff as human beings.
