Challenging and Rewarding

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The typical day requires a lot of initiative. You plan your own day and targets. The Management structure is loose, being a family business, the culture is very much conservative and the hardest part of my job is the lack of training or guidance, the most enjoyable part is the freedom in the Role.

Pros

Freedom in Role

Cons

Long Hours, Little Training

Bus driver

Weekly roster sent out on Fridays. Drove set route to Dublin Airport gets very boring. Passengers are usually fine but as always you come across people who are annoyed with the company but take it out on you as the driver. Wages are awful relative to the hours you have to do, most of which is hanging around in Dublin Airport waiting to swap buses

Pros

Reasonable fleet, money paid on time

Cons

Long hours, boring work, very bad salary

It was a Job

The company does not value its employees, Never received an uniform (even though they took measurements), you were expected to fund your own uniform, I did ask about it months later and was told is was on a boat from Pakistain, a very slow boat !!!!!!No sick pay, if you take a day off its at your own cost. When you needed a to update your driver CPC, you had to at your own cost, So losing a days pay and costing you another €55 and expensive day off, I had to pay for my own First aid course, the company didnt really care w

Pros

I enjoyed the crack with the regular passengers and other drivers

Cons

long unpayed breaks through out the day

Great place to work

Friendly staff easy routes and well looked after buses. Only down side is the roster. Monday and Tuesday you could start at 230 am and finish at 1130 am but then on wednesday you start at 1130 am so ypu vertually have no body clock. But that is the only thing. Everything else is great and easy to talk to management.

Pros

Eeverything

Cons

Roster
