Bad place overall

4AM finish, 8 hours work for £11PH.No one knows how to do the job except 1 or 2 people.Management hates cleaners.Have to work 8 nights in a row, management regards cleaners as 10 a penny.There is absolutely no life/work balance. You work 2 weekends on and 2 off. However, you really only get 1 weekend off as the other is just a Sunday off. The Saturday before, you work. So once you get home and sleep, that's the Sunday gone.Originally the union tried to get night cleaners £12PH and was told be high ups, that they wasn't worth it.

Pros

The engineers

Cons

Late finishes for terrible pay. Managers. No life just work.

Shirt evening shifts

Working 6 days a week 6.5 hours in the evenings might suit you if you for example have responsibilities in the day times. However in terms of a career, unless you are likely wanting to either learn to be a driver, or have a passion for vehicle repair and will look for a apprenticeship in engineering, there is no other scope for progression or learning and the job will stay the same, day in day out 6 days a week.

Pros

Free Bus Pass

Cons

6 days a week

Fantastic place to work, great team and a really good work atmosphere

I had no experience when arriving at Stagecoach. They welcomed me in and made me feel like one of the team straight away. Full training was provided on the first few days and everything was explained and easy to understand.This is a great company to work for you get well looked after.

Pros

Flexible Hours, all PPE supplied, full training provided

Best place I’ve ever worked as a shunter

Buses could do with being maintained better prime example I drove into the bus wash and it cut out and never started again that’s with the bus in nutral i regened the bus never worked so I phoned up the manager told him what’s going on and there is a one way system around the yard and I was told to break that system and it led to me finishing at 5am instead off 1am if you want long hours this is the place to be if u want the money again it’s the place to be but if u crash a bus your out the door quicker than a deer jumping a wall that’s for sure

Pros

Pay, free pass, great people to get on with

Cons

Long hours and low maintenance on buses

Fast paced work environment

A typical work day for a cleaner at Stagecoach is a busy one. It starts before the first wave of busses come into the yard where you get the required equipment and machinery set up like brooms and mops to the bus wash if you're qualified to use it. When the fleet starts to come in you get busy with sweeping the first lot before the main rush happens where the yard drivers shunt them through the pumps, the bus wash and into the yard for the next day. My job was to deep clean the interior surfaces of the busses like chair backs and that was busy yet easy work.

Productive, but can be stressful.

Nice people to work with. Easy to get to. Don't have much contact with management working nights. Not always able to deliver what is expected of you.

Pros

Free bus pass for you and your immediate family.

Cons

Long working week based on my rota.

Not great

Not the best place to work. They are about to be took over and possibly shutting down. I enjoyed the job when the buses were available to clean which wasn't always the case can be a lot if down time and then I are expected to rush in a short period of time.

Great company. Can be flexible with hours on request.

I love working here, everyone is friendly, helpful. I have made a lot of great friends. It makes up for the low wages. Overall a good company to work for.

Corrupt managment

Corrupt management that want to take advantage of their employees. 90% of other staff are friendly and understanding. Good place to work if you have lots of experience and aren't afraid to put management in their place when things start going south.

don’t have a clue

You’re always on edge, management making excuses for your work not being up to standard and don’t have evidence to back up their claim, trying to force you out by saying we’re over staffed but we are definitely understaffed and want 100% cleanness but getting rid of moppers. The managers don’t have a clue how to run the cleaners. And saying we’re all getting made redundant but they are saying need more staff

Pros

Easy Money

Cons

Bad Management, Being Threaten, Forced Out, Bullied by Management, Redundancy.

Poor management and bad work ethic

The back shift team don't work as a team they claim they can't speak English to the managers but they have plenty to say to the workers when they aren't happy. The managers are clueless they allowed them off with assault and other types of bullying.

Pros

Good amount of holidays

Cons

Working with stagecoach is a great way to meet people as well as it gives you a free mode of transport, unluckily it does not allow you on mega busses but it does provide on the stagecoach city link busses.

Pros

Free Bus Pass for any stagecoach busses

Cons
