    I have been working at Transdev full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None of the rubbish you get with other bus companies like intentional underpayment, vehicles in disrepair, overworking professional drivers.

    Cons

    At times frustrating when they decide to pursue a fantastic new initiative which just does not work in the trenches.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to & understand the challenges faced by your people. Catch the bus occasionally.

    I worked at Transdev full-time

    Pros

    reasonable rate of pay, semi-sociable hours

    Cons

    working under supervisors who aren't qualified to make critical safety calls, who end up sending buses out, with faulty brake valves, steering faults, etc. (supervisor wasn't a mechanic of any stripe, who at times removed "Safety lock out" tags, to send vehicles into "traffic" while still being faulty; all to meet KPIs and "peak demand")

    Advice to Management

    perhaps, place people who are suitably qualified into supervisor roles, that are legally, and from safety stand-points, able to make proper calls on these things. you guys owe it to the public

    I worked at Transdev

    Pros

    Absolutely none! Staff are number, cheap labour and very little support. Management especially Human Resources Department are unprofessional, incompetent and extremely discrimative.

    Cons

    Staff are only a number if you are below management level. Cheap labour and very little support Senior Management and especially Human Resources Department are unprofessional, incompetent and extremely discrimative.

    Advice to Management

    Update your careers section of website. - you are not an inclusive company and supportive of those with disabilities. Shame on you ! Such misleading advertisement.
