Manger is a BULLY!
Mackay Office staff (Former Employee) –  Mackay QLD4 April 2019
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

The company was well organised in their rosters.
Coach Captain (Former Employee) –  Mackay QLD19 March 2018
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.

A great place to work
National Control Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD17 November 2017
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.

Dont put yourself through it
FIFO Coach Driver (Former Employee) –  Onslow, WA23 December 2015
Like the greater majority of GHA employees at wheatstone (Onslow) without doubt the worst job I've had.
Good camp, majority good people, but the management onsite are way out of their depth & OK to follow the barbarian regime set by GHA Brisbane. Long days back & forth your on the go clocking on & off 16 hrs a day yet they wont pay more than 8 hrs. So many staff lied to about this before going to site. The site is a 10 hr site simple as that so you work out the rest. Discrimination is rife there & the chosen ones get away with anything while others are fired for the slightest issue. Think very carefully this is a hot remote site you will be giving up a lot to be paid half what other contractors are paying their staff.
Pros
Good camp & food etc. Very interesting project.
Cons
Bullied, Victimised, Discriminated, Stressed, Depressed

DRIVER (Current Employee) –  ONSLOW WA11 March 2015
AVERAGE day ,starts bout 4.30 am two runs to site finish about 6.30 go for breakfast.then back at 8 for a tool box meeting and 2 .3 hours of yard duty's cleaning buses etc or you do a shuttle service in the day , then back about 3 or four two runs from site back to camp,its poss that you don,t do yard duties could be airport.runs or dinner runs,most drivers are great,but there are a thew who don,t give a dam about the safety of the others drivers..management on site are out of they depth,and always blaming the client for their mishaps and their plenty of them on a daily basis..so this can reflect on the work force..Brisbane head office management have no idea how to treat the drivers at the Wheatstone site, you get used to the 4/1 roster its, great food and camp life style.and the beers are cheep to.,..all other company's, pay overtimes rates but not greyhound here or on public holidays, good sporting facility,,fun to have
