Motor Coach Operator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 21, 2017
I worked for Greyhound back in 2002. It was a company that focused on the Motor Coach Operator first. I felt that I was always taken care of and that I was never under any obligation to compromise the safety of myself, the passengers and the equipment.
A typical day at work consists of being in an office with about 12 other people. We all have our own desks and work diligently. The management works well with everyone when they are not in meetings or out of the office. The workplace culture can be difficult at times. Of course any office management job has people who don't know how to focus on themselves or their own work, but it helps when you can stay to yourself and mind your own business. The hardest part about the job may be the stressful situations we are put in on a daily basis, whether it be in-office, defiant drivers or no properly working bus equipment. The enjoyable part of the job is you get to communicate with people all over the United States.
you learn a lot, they're willing to teach you what you need to know. management is not really open to new ideas even though they say they are. they expect you to work a lot but not get paid much. constantly in "tight budget" and no raises even with record breaking sales.
Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 7, 2017
This company is terrible you work yourself to death .management is the worst,I was a extra board driver when you drive and do a schedule you get 9 hours to rest then they can call you to do another job most of the hotels you stay in are dirty and lots of bed bugs. Busses are dirty and break down a lot and as for passengers they don't care about them once they get their money the morale is so bad I would rather work at Walmart DON'T WORK HERE YOU WILL REGERT IT.
Bad management bad hotels you dont get much sleep and busses that break down a lot.
Greyhound Package Express (GPX) Agent (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 6, 2017
Greyhound is an overall decent place but everything needs to be updated, they are out of date with everything. They are willing to work with you to make sure you have a set schedule if you go to school or have another job. The management is trying to make people do more work for the same or less pay.
Free food on holiday, metro cards, you get a bit more benefits if your full time
Dirty outdated facility, can get laid off without warning, bad management, disorganized

Motor Coach Operator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 1, 2017
Typical day at work was checking in, inspecting the bus, reviewing required paperwork, going over route, loading passengers, driving passengers. I learned how to operate a motor coach with passengers. Management was receptive to driver issues. Workplace culture was very good with all Greyhound employees. The hardest part of the job was learning a new route using only maps. The most enjoyable part of the job was actually operating the bus.
Bus Operator (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – May 24, 2017
If you want to work hard, this is the job, but you will deal with management issues from different cities, no home life when you start, and no pension. You'll work like a machine at times or wont work until they need you and pray your bus doesn't break down. Barely any security so pray no passenger decides on getting dumb.
customer service (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 22, 2017
