    Pros

    flexible hours, easy to get adjusted to the work

    High turnover rate causes stress on management. They will do anything to get a shift covered so they dont have to drive. Including calling your phone several times at all hours.

    Hire more people than needed, rather than ust enough. Set up no call hours with drivers

    Pros

    Friendly people, a real focus on safety in the transportation services that they provide.

    Cons

    No understanding of how to leverage software or data science to get ahead of changes in the transportation industry. Very top down management style, wrapped in rhetoric about openness and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge and focus on your core fundamentals, and invest in leveraging software and data science to keep up with the rapidly changing transportation landscape while you still can.

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

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere for the most part but comes at a very high price

    Cons

    Management is astoundingly disorganized. Absolutely none of it is on the same page as the others. Too many chiefs and not enough braves at the Anaheim location.

    Trainers are OK people but absolutely none of them are on the same page as the others. Coach operator trainees are told a thousand different things by a thousand different people and maybe 10% of the information is accurate. Trainees must fill out the same form 50 different times because "lost" is a big thing at the Anaheim office. While I was there, 15 new trainees had to return to the DMV for their H6 forms because either the trainer and/or outgoing HR person "lost" the forms. And we all know how wonderful the DMV is in CA. You spend 3 consecutive days standing in line trying to obtain a form that should be available online but is not.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and C O M M U N I C A T E with each other. To an outsider, you appear to have it together. To employees, not so much.
