Long hours and weak management

Very easy to secure a driving position, however pay is very very low for Dublin living expenses and i could only survive through excessive overtime. Senior management very out of touch with realities of the job and keep demanding more and more.

Pros

Free uniform

Cons

No support from management and very long hours

A fairly decent place to work with decent co-workers.

Go Ahead is a good Job for Job security. Come in, do your days work, go home you will have no issues.Many shifts are far too long, 10hr days can be the norm. This can be tiresome. Many rosters have 6 days in a row over two week periods for 3 weeks in a row.There is fair opportunity for promotions.

Pros

Subsistence allowances, bonus payments, 15 days paid sick leave per year after 12 months service, Company pension plan.

Cons

Long hours.

Great for training and learning, terrible at listening to staff

Allow you to work with own initiative, allow you explore where you fit in service, training is excellent however shifts are not linear, pay is minimum in market and overtime rate is only 1.25 the hourly rate. No fee GP like in CIE companies.

Pros

Free gym

Cons

Can't pick holidays
