The shift work is terrible, bogey shifts are start at 7am, break from 11am-3pm and finish at 7pm, terrible! Getting verbal and physical abuse is part and parcel of the job. You will get the blame for everything that goes wrong, does not matter if it has nothing to do with you, you will be blamed. Avoid if you want a stress free life.

I believe that I learnt a lot during my time at Dublin Bus. I had the opportunity to complete a manual handling course. I became more proficient in Microsoft Office. My communication skills also improved. A typical day at work included general administrative tasks such as filing and data entry. The management were friendly and approachable while remaining professional. The workplace culture was open and inviting and no one seemed to be left out. My particular duties didn't prove to be difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job was being given some responsibility and the opportunity to learn from successful business people.
Pros
Free bus transport

A typical day as a bus driver is to make sure you get the passengers to and from there destination safely. I worked for 10 years with Dublin bus and had a good relationship with all staff and management.The hardest part of the job was getting up at 0400 in the morning but never slept it out.It was an enjoyable job because I was meeting driferant people every day.
Cons
Worked long hours

Salary is the best for a driving job, once you get settled in your garage your workmates (men & women) get to know you but the choice is yours if you want to socialise. Some drivers just do the job and dont interact but most are pleasent and helpful. Its the getting up very early (sometimes start 4.30am) and finishing very late (after 1am) thats the hardest to adapt to. In this job be prepared to get very little sleep. And get abused daily by passengers, because no matter whether you are nice and on time its always the "Drivers" fault that they are late for appointments or work. It can be stressful if you let it get to you, not a job for sensitive people, need to be tough skinned too.
Pros
Free bus travel, Free train travel, Free Doctor (when appointed) for you & family, periodic training and cpc, Social club and company sports days.
Cons
getting up b4 crack of dawn and finishing other days well after midnight, Also Not knowing what you are on until day b4

We start at 8 am and meet in the office where our boss , gives us are work sheets it's time where we can all have a bit of chat and crack, we then get our can ready for the day work a head, l learned a lot form this job , interacting with the puclic . Co workers are great but we only see them at morning and end of the day. The manament are I'm o Connell street so I wouldn't see a lot of them, the hardest part of job is leaveing work lol only jokeing . I don't think there is a hard part , it's work so u get on with it, but give it one hundred percent, I enjoy a lot about working with Dublin bus but pay is not great .
