I was hired on the cusp of 'Female Interjection", 2004/05 to increase the Genda equality. Training provided, then 'Buddy system' then out you go. Total 4-6 weeks.

Enjoyed meeting a plethora of cultures, ages and personalities, did not enjoy 'hostilities from 'homeless, street and troubled minded peoples.


Did not enjoy the idea, that at any time, anyone could be stabbed, bombed, spat on and abused physically, verbally, also mentally and I found having a cage was not the solution only that it exasperated the onslaught and isolated the loneliness further, creating a more heightened emotion of 'mental anguish' as there was no escape from the cab.


The idea that 'The driver' and ONLY the driver was fully responsible for 'every situation' whilst in the drivers seat, weighed heavily on shoulders and perpetuated the belief that something negative and untoward would happen and by thinking so, put into motion realism of accidents occurring.


More relaxation Techniques need to be implemented and more Back-up provided. Being left out to dry alone without fellow co-workers and management not believing and wiping clean records so as to be rid of a 'ball breaker' was, so say the least, very sad. I felt very betrayed and forgotten about. I hope that my service was not in vain. Thank you for the gold star of customer service excellence 2016 and the 'kiss off'

Management has no proper transport experience. They only care about KPIs it customers or ground staff. Even their training they called it journey maker academy. Words don’t make safe drivers proper training and procedures and running times which many drivers sai haven’t changed for 10 years
Pros
Yes you can make a good wage.
Cons
Management are only for themselves. They love butt kissing.

Not a very pleasant environment,

Management had racist overtones.

They seem more interested in reaching targets and competing for new routes.

And not interested in there staff

A typical day at work as split shift was start early in the morning (about 5 or 6 am), drove about 4 hours, then have a break for 2 to 3 hours, then drove another 3-4 hours in the afternoon,
Managers only talk to you when you have some problems.

The hardest part of the job was try to remember the new routes almost every 2 weeks which is very hard for new drivers.Still remember my first time route 370 back and forth 7 times in the afternoon, it was winter and gets dark after 5.30pm, up the mountain you can't see, you had to feel when to turn, it was pretty frightening.

The most enjoyable part of the job was during the break make jokes about the mistakes you made about driving with others.
Pros
Driving an empty bus still get paid.
Cons
On freeway you realise your left hand side of mirror has gone.

Good place to work, learning bus routes can be challenging for some people. You feel a but underpaid as trainee but once you are full timer you can earn well with overtime. The culture is very collaborative. Most of the people are helpful and easy to work with.

Transdev used to be a great place to work and I was proud to work there, but with constantly changing Senior managers who make poor decisions the place went downhill rapidly.
Constant restructuring created disharmony in the workplace, with a lot of good people losing their jobs

Stress in the middle management team is common and they’ll let you work yourself into the ground and still expect more

Too much politics never get to use my qualification and experience to full potential. Older workers are undermined by younger and new managers. Fair treatment is long way away for this company. Overseas managers have no idea about Australian culture. Wasted my time pushing myself over the limit. Fake appreciation, who you know not what you know. Mmanager

I need something more reliable. The need to be flexible and that's why I like shift work. The work is very safety based and needs to be as you are carrying passengers.

Management trying to get rid of full time drivers to cut costs. The more casuals and part timers the better for them. Drivers are not seen as humans. Managers seem to be trained at puppy school. Yes they are dogs.
Pros
Cant think of one
Cons
Lose your dignity and go crazy
