    I worked at Transdev full-time

    Pros

    Mostly nice trainers and coworkers; great managers.
    They pay and train you to get a CDL B.
    Very tolerant of sick days off.
    Lots of overtime opportunity, and decent pay.

    Cons

    Split shifts will run you ragged.

    You start work around 4-5am and return 9am, then you start again around 1pm and finish at 7-8pm. You might get around 4-5 hours of sleep every work night, then they expect you to make-up the rest of the sleep between your split shifts. This is why bus drivers fall asleep and crash.

    A small mistake on this job can result in multiple counts of involuntary manslaughter.

    You deal with people of all walks of life; believe it or not, the rich and entitled are the worst.

    Bathroom breaks are far between; sometimes not at all.

    I have been working at Transdev full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The clients are what makes your day. OT is in abundance.

    Cons

    This company does not care about the drivers.Its all about the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    They should really come up with a plan so the different departments can work together instead of against one another. Safety does not care about scheduling and scheduling does not care about safety, operations doesn't care about scheduling and so on.
