Adversarial relationship between mgt and employees.
Coach Operator (Former Employee), Everett, WAAugust 25, 2013
Pros: great benefits and salary
Cons: almost no breaks.short times for turn-arounds.
A typical day is split shifts, and there are split days off every week. There can be as little as a half hour up to 4 hours between runs. Management is adversarial. And that is the hardest part of the job. Every day the drivers go out and risk their livelihood and maybe even their lives And the company has written the SOP so that everything is always – more... the driver's fault and mgt is never held responsible

I learned so much working for CT. On the positive side I learned how to handle large vehicles, be alert for anything, and how to deal with the public in almost any situation.

My co-workers were great. They all worked very hard to do a good job.

There were so many great things about the job. Driving any size bus in all kinds of traffic and all kinds weather was challenging and exciting. And I loved working with the passengers and the other drivers. – less

Our clients make you want to come to work everyday
Safety Supervisor - Operations (Current Employee), Eddystone, PAMarch 30, 2013
Pros: friendly people, family work type atmosphere, good attitudes
Cons: healthcare, could provide better wages to the drivers for the amount of work expected
My work day starts at 4am and I always start the day with a formal greeting. I'll ask everyone from drivers to management how can I make their day better or what suggestions may they have to make our office a better work place. The expectations from our clients is our biggest task. Every personality is different which post a challenge on how you interact – more... and find out how they would like to be treated. Listening and communicating makes a difference on how your day will go. The drivers are the core of our company so understanding how they feel is essential. If you don't take the time to ensure that they are in good health, happy or may have a situation at home that could affect their job performance. Then I haven't done my job as a safety supervisor to care about their needs or well being. We are all human and have feelings and whether you are a co-worker, a friend, a family member or someone who is need of a helping hand. You should always take the time to listen and understand what they are going through. Words of encouragement can make a difference in our daily lives. The hardest part of the job is disciplinary actions. It's finding the correct method on how to explain to the driver what he or she did wrong and how they will take it. If you confront the individual in a harsh or negative manner, their attitude will change which may cause poor job performance. Always discipline an employee away from anyone and in a private conference room if available. The best part of my job is having someone approach you about a situation and finding a way to resolve the issue. That normally brings a smile to their day and makes them feel that just because you are part of management that you do not take the time to care. I started as a driver and I don't forget as a safety supervisor what can of days a person can have with challenges that can make the work day difficult. Take the time to communicate and never forget the people who helped you along the way in your career path. – less

Toxic Environment
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee), Everett, WADecember 21, 2012
Pros: good salary and benefits
Cons: constant fear of persecution; zero job security!!!
Management regularly engages in unfair labor practices. They manage employees by ruling by fear. Employees are not valued or acknowledged for their accomplishments, but are quicly and severely punished for errors or indiscretions. There is discrimination and persecution, targeting and constant pervasive fear of the managers and the power they hold. – more... Grievance procedures and disciplinary hearings are a Kangaroo Court. Union Officials there are OVERWORKED because they are CONSTANTLY defending their members from personal attacks by Transportation Managers. – less

Drivers a great group to work with
coach operator for a public transit agency (Former Employee), Everett, WAMarch 11, 2012
I enjoyed my time as a driver. I worked with great people, who I am proud to still call my friends. Unfortunately, there is a huge division between the drivers and management!
