    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.

    I have been working at Transdev full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Full time and plenty of overtime. Paid training. Drivers are engaging and fun to be around.

    Cons

    6 day work week mandatory (for over 2 years and counting). Management constantly changing. Management unaware of how services operate. Missed meal breaks due to lack of drivers. Very high turnover rate. Management trying to implement unnecessary splits. Management frequently alters work schedule. Operations manager hostile.

    Advice to Management

    Replace operations manager. Corporate needs to step in and see what's happening at this location before losing more drivers.
