If you haven't lived on a site it will be hard for you.
The people are good

at 90% of the safety is great but the unwritten code is hard to follow as I like to cross my tees and dot my I.

But over all good place to work.

I have no problem going back to work for them, if they have me

the shift can be long and drawn out, also working at very odd hours of the night. my depot supervisor was easy to get along with and very helpful yet the head office in Brisbane showed very little support for they're drivers and I found that workers only ever heard from head office if they were in trouble. still the pay was reasonably fair and the work can be rewarding.

Very negative management. The company has what it takes to be the world's best company but proves very frustrating.Managers are too scared to speak up and are usually employed from outside the industry. Rostering never was as per the EBA.

Bowan basin Regional and Operations Managers are very inexperienced on how you treat staff, Zero people skills and continuous lies .Your pay is never right so need to follow up weekly and you are only paid 8 hours for 14 hour days. Scedulars always get runs wrong and the blame drivers.I have worked around the world and Greyhound would be the worst company to work for. Better managment would make it a great place to work otherwise.

Being sent on long distance runs and not knowing the run. Manager of Mackay stating all the drivers are dickheads. Not having accommodation ready when I arrived was made to drive out of my hours and was breached. Too many shifts which breached hours. Poor maintenance.

As a female applying for the position of a heavy vehicle trade assistant i was welcomed and given incredible experience by the many very talented staff in all aspects of the company. I would highly recommend Greyhound to anyone who is willing to work hard because the support you receive in return is rewarding and the staff are understanding and accepting. understanding

Manager bullies staff. Staff are scared of him.
Staff overworked and stressed.

Staff (from all fields ranging from Admin, Workshops, Schedulers and Bus Drivers) resigning most days due to bullying tactics.

No work / life balance.

Told daily my Manager - 'Just make it happen' - which means stay at work until the work is done even if it's late at night.

Reasonable unpaid overtime means do the workload or your sacked.
Pros
It was a job!
Cons
Overworked, Stressed, Bullied, Not paid for hours worked

Great team work with the staff and other workers.

Living at the camp was a fun place as they have good gyms, and pools to relax in after work. Shops and good food on offer for the time your away at the camps.


A typical day was to check the bus over for any possible breakdowns. then ensure all passengers were belted in their seatbelts and no loose luggage or items rolling around the bus.


Then drive a 30 minute drive to the destination, and then back to the camp. Then do the same thing in the afternoon go to the site, pick up the passengers and drive them back to camp.


Shower then go to the mess hall for dinner and retire for the evening.


Most enjoyable was meeting people with different trades and qualifications and learning about the type of work they do.
Pros
Great staff, always helpful with new routes and rosters.
Cons
not being home to water the herb gardens.

After 10 years it was time for a change, I've enjoyed working at Greyhound and worked with a lot of great people its a very diverse company with a lot of different sectors, Its a very old company and is the largest Bus Transport provider in Australia, the pay is not bad but expect to work long hours and no family life balance with working weekends just the normal routine.
Pros
Eagle Farm Location, easy to get to.
Cons
Very long hours, no work life balance.
