Driver in Coventry City Centre, West Midlands
on 4 July 2022
Fast paced
Ok but it's public service driving so it's not always easy but it's how you bake it work for you. Need to not let passengers get to you and you need to be able to keep driving even if traffic makes you late!

If like driving buses
Its a job for people who has strong nerves. Days can be long, especially Sundays. Best to do this job is to switch off .Birmingham is hard place to drive bus.

Satisfactory. It’s a job at the end of the day. Either stick at it or find somewhere else. It’s not worth the hassle most of the time. You’re left to fend for yourself.
Coach Driver in Stansted, Essex
on 24 June 2022
Average pay with long shifts and no support
They promote the controllers as being helpful and understanding..this couldn’t be more wrong….ur expected to know every road in and around London and every diversion if u don’t know it you call control they advise you to use Google maps!!! Google maps doesn’t know height/length/width/weight of a coach and this caused a lot of issues while I have been here. You are a bum on a seat as soon as u don’t do what is asked of you or you break any rule(no matter how insignificant the rule) then ur fired! Pay is ok for the job but after 3 months they still can’t pay me correctly or payroll messes up and lose your paperwork etc etc….If your new to the industry then I would recommend paying for you license yourself and join any other company if you use National express to get your license you will be tired to them for 2 years and you will hate every minute of it….
