Poorly managed

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Forever changing the rota and daily duties. Meal breaks are limited because of time pressures. Never have enough time to do your runs and often left to your own problems with no back up.

Look elsewhere

Couldn't find the time warp button anywhere on the coach and believe me you will need to find it working here regularly 2 to 3 hrs late finishing, constantly tired as worked to death by this company Open door policy not worth a w ankTimings done by Google maps complete joke as these vehicles can only do 60mph top speed legallyShort breaks and asked to work through these (TACHO MANIPULATION)vehicles all dented as company will take anyone on with a licence as they have fast turnover of drivers wages ok but mileage driven absolutely crazy You will be worked to your limit and if your vehicle is a long way away from the depot with passengers on and has a mechanical issue expect to be begged to carry on this happened to me on 2 occasions in 5 months Shame used to be a good company when national express but now flixbus and everything has gone out the window tbh I don't think the management really care at all anymoreNo training no route learning no cpc training Driver trainer nice guy but doesn't hold a pcv licence anymore and no time available for any training for drivers Don't do it don't risk your licence or freedomControllers decent

Pros

Not many

Undervalued

In all my years of work I have never worked for such a poorly organised and unprofessional operation, you are completely undervalued as a staff member and generally treat like dirt. There is a total lack of courtesy and manners all over the business and basically anyone considering this as an option for employment should carry on looking
