Professional Motor Coach Operator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 17, 2015
It's a fun work environment, people-wise. You meet new people every day, and have a ton of co-workers (as in all places, some great, others not so). Every day is different, and never boring. But the management is very top-heavy and not well trained. They pinch fractions of pennies (not just pennies). You have to chase your pay every day to make sure you are compensated for your work. And they will use you when they need you, but leave you out for the wolves come any other circumstance. Your always nervous to get fired over something ridiculous.
Decent pay, lots of new people, new scenery, every day is an adventure
Have to chase your money, will get taken advantage of on a regular basis, nervous about getting fired over anything
Professional Motorcoach Operator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 22, 2015
Greyhound was a great way to get my CDL B. I learned how to drive buses and really enjoyed it. Management isn't too personable but they are friendly and will help you if you really need the help. Once you're done with training, you work on your own for the most part. The hardest part of the job is being away from home, or on the go day in and day out. Wages are fair. Dealing with the customers isn't difficult even if the customer is being difficult.
Travelling, fair wages, good benefits, reliable, consistent work.
*Processing PO's for venders, reconciling bank statements, and *processing invoices for payment. *I have learned J D Edwards system and MCMS processor. *Management is excellent providing support in daily operations of the company. *My co-workers are great at being team players. *The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting the customers payments are processed in a timely manner.

Greyhound was by far the best employer simply because they take good care of their employees. We had excellent benefits, great working environment, and good company training and support from upper management.
This company is soo good that the opportunity for advancement has plenty of competition.
A typical day at work deals with at least one hundred people a day. Today I helped a customer as far as going to the extent to get the customer to forward me and email and me take things into my own hands. The customers were so happy that maybe five minutes later they brought me two drinks for helping them.

Accounting Clerk, Philadelphia (Former Employee) – New York, New York – January 16, 2014
Working at Greyhound Lines in NY was very rewarding. I love the culture, team work, and management cooperativeness. Working there was like a family environment. We stock together and I most of it had to do with the size of the terminal which is one of the largest countrywide.
I enjoyed the driving and travel to different states and cities.
Driver (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 9, 2014
A typical day started out with performing a preventive maintenance check on the coach, annotating all flaws, boarding passengers and various packages and correspondence for specific destinations. The hardest function of the position was physically loading and unloading heavy luggage and dealing with difficult passengers. Once reaching the final destination, some of the drivers would talk about some of the events on the road, passengers and new variations of directions due to some of the changes of the routes. For me, the hardest part of the job was the time on the road, long hours away from home, sleeping in different motels without always getting the proper rest and various pests that motels carry. At the end of each trip, I was happy to have safely transported people and myself to either part of or our final destinations.
driving, traveling to different cities, meeting new people and persons that travel by greyhound regularly.
