Cannon Fodder
No work life and home life difference if you work here be prepared to spend 16 of your 24 hours a day working and patience is a must otherwise look elsewhere driving in Edinburgh specially as a bus driver is a nightmare

Nice place to work
Different rota patterns, suits most. Quite good pay as for driving buses. New fleet, so no breakdowns. Lothian is good place to work, nice atmosphere there.

Depressing bullying culture, no morale
A typical day consists with clocking in a getting moaned at for what you didn’t do the day before.Management have a bullying culture which we striked for a few years back (nothing has changed). Long hours with no morale or thanks, pay was good but not had a rise in years so other places are now on par with here. Workplace culture is - get it done or go home!The hardest part of my job is actually having to get up and clock in, it wasn’t always like this, when I started many years ago morale was up and employee satisfaction existed, now the place is utter dreadful. The people in charge have no clue what there doing or how they should be treating employees.When a job post goes up you better be related to or know someone in management other wise there’s no point in even applying. I wouldn't recommend Lothian buses to work for. Money is good and that’s where the good stops. The best part of my day is going home.

Don't just don't the worst job you could ever imagine
Combative between the managers and the public nothing but stress form the moment you walk in the door until you take the uniform off pay a joke director's think everyone is replaceable except them If you want a home life look else where the worst job you can imagine
