    I worked at Transdev full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Received pay during the pandemic even though they suspended operations (most likely due to Waymo/Google's commitment to paying their contractors).

    Cons

    1. From the start, I knew I wasn't going to stay long. I was so excited about the project initially. The interview process was so generic and they literally hire anyone with a driver's license and a heartbeat. 2. Unorganized in the hiring process. They also promised a sign-on hiring bonus to all new hires and I never received that bonus. 3. When we were on site, other employees of Waymo/Google didn't interact with you and I felt very unwelcomed. 4. There was no communication from Waymo or Transdev leadership about the important work we were doing and how Transdev contributed to Waymo's goal. We were there to be test dummies and log miles. Doesn't really sound motivating. 5. The pay is low. 6. The supervisors talk to employees like trash. They are quick to fire and will let you know that. They also foster toxic work environments. Supervisors and managers need some serious people skills and management training. 7. Communication is terrible. No one knows who is responsible for what. My HR related questions weren't answered and there is no one at corporate to help you. I was there for over 90 days and never signed up for benefits. 8. The benefits are crap compared to working onsite with a tech company. I mean there is a huge difference in benefits offered and Transdev doesn't offer much. Sometimes Waymo offices close and you won't receive pay.

    I have been working at Transdev full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Cons

    Terrible healthcare plan and benefits. Awful management that wants you to put the job over your family and life. Along with their client Waymo, they exploited a non-essential business to resume operations by saying they would be doing donation charity drives. Nothing but a farce with fake news. Safety measures have been thrown out the window post-COVID, they claim to be vigilant with their disinfecting when that is a lie. Employees who have not been properly trained are made to disinfect the cars without proper PPE. Change company policies on a regular basis without informing employees. They are more focused on autonomous miles than your safety, even if you’re tired or not feeling well. They will send you home without pay. You get deducted points by AVOS managers for speaking out about how things are poorly handled by either them or their client Waymo. Multiple layers of channels you have to go through to accomplish anything work related, no clear concise point of contact. It’s all over the place, you never know who is in charge of what.

    Pros

    There are no pros. They don’t care about their “employees”.

    Cons

    Absolutely terrible response and handling of the covid pandemic. Safety has been thrown out the window to fill the pockets of their suits, and employment partnerships. They put every single employee at risk.

    Pros

    You get to watch googlers get treated like Gods.

    Cons

    Change their policies every other week and let their employees know with a little all hands meeting and pretend their way of screwing their workers over is an “opportunity” They care about their client, Waymo more than their employees. They fire their employees with false accusations Favoritism No way of moving up if you’re not friends with the AVOS Managers tell you “that’s your problem” if you have personal issues They lie about being a transportation company to get around being an essential company when they don’t transport anything They don’t care if you’re tired, keep getting those miles Your opinion means nothing, miles > sanity Safety is not their main priority, miles are You’re expected to act like a robot at all times All of the managers curse around each other and if you say any kind of curse word as a driver, you’re scolded Management talks to their drivers like they’re children They expect you to put your job before your family The list goes on
