Mornings start off busy three buses back to back, usually slows down. Gets really difficult when the weathers bad; best thing about working get a lot of down time and other workers are easy going. Its outside physical work that I like keeps me constantly in motion. Management pretty decent.
Ticket Agent (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – May 11, 2016
Was a fun place to be. the major downside to it was they lied about the schedule the buses would arrive and that management made sure we had to do so. Meeting new people of different cultures was a nice addition.
Coach Bus Operator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 25, 2016
Management was great and always offered compensation whenever needed. My co-workers are an asset to the company and most everyone tries to work together. Really no hard part to this job. It's all about being able to get along with everyone riding the bus and enjoying what you do as I do enjoy being an asset to the company.
Ticket Agent (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 5, 2016
Ticket agent for MegaBus. Worked at the stop and rarely had interference from management which left a lot of down time for reading and whatnot but didn't always feel safe from some of the shadier passengers.

bus driver (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – January 5, 2016
They gave us a 34 day notice of are routes being terminated witch put us out of work until further notice. Some of the drivers have kids car notes etc. They haven't offer no bonus or grievance pay due to the situation. A billion dollar company treat good employees like dead fish left in the sun.Loyal employees with clean mvr master thier jobs as a professional. This is a cold hearted business. They offered charter employment that pays 25 bucks per day to keep employees from filing unemployment. I believe they could have handle this alot better with a meeting not word of mouth. The chater work pay less then MCDONALD'S i never seen nothing like this in my life! Management suck i dont even no who to answer too!
Meet people of all nature and background good and bad it can be exciting or crazy .
no pay increase/ no holiday pay/ no paid time off/no bonus

when you drive a megabus you feel like the king of the road . every car that rides by looks up every stop you make in a small town someone comes up and ask how do you drive something this big.But to tell you the truth it drives like a car.
Operation Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 8, 2015
When coming to work you don't know what to expect. I have to prepare for the next day. As a manager I learned to except problem and not to be afraid to tackle the problem head on. It is a fun place to work with the co workers and drivers I have to deal with on a day by day basis. The hardest part of the job is when a bus break down in the middle of the night and we have to find drivers and prepare a bus to rescue the customers and driver. If that is not possible then we have to call other bus companies to help us with our situation. When everything is calm and goes as plan then we can do our job and relax afterwards.
Motor Coach Driver (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 29, 2014
co-workers are good to work with. passengers and management is the hardest part of the job and the double standards just don't work. They teach you some good Motor Coach driving skills. If you like to travel a lot well this might be for you.not much more to say
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 22, 2014
This job required us to manage over 160+ drivers. We had to provide a fleet report for buses going out hours prior to their departure so that buses were on time for their routes. We had to work with the shop/mechanics so that we knew when buses would be coming out of the garage and ready to go out. If there were legal problems with drivers and they could not pull their run, or for any other personal reasons, then we had to change the schedule and re-arrange drivers with enough time for them to have the legal amount of hours off and time to come into work.
Furthermore, other than managing, the other Operations Managers split the work. There are usually two per shift and when times got tough the atmosphere gets stressful fast. The toughest part of this job was to create a fleet report for our outbound buses when there were buses in the shop, broke down out of state, and older buses that could not complete the longer routes.
sometimes free lunch, request time off was decent
no lunch break, not enough room for personal area like a desk, does not pay enough
Productive and Exciting workplace with great benifits.
Coach USA (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – September 9, 2014
I enjoyed working with the company as a ticket agent. I wanted to get promoted to a manager or supervisor position but due to my car accident and company pay cut I was laid off. Dealing with customers face to face everyday coming into the facility and leaving at scheduled departure times I would say it was very interesting and quite a challenging experience everyday and night that I was assigned to work.
Coach Operator (Former Employee) – MD – July 12, 2014
This job did pay the bills but you work long hours. The benefits were lousy so you'd better not get sick. My fellow co workers were fun but don't get too close. Management was a joke. They were so unprofessional. They made up rules as they went along. They tried to use intimidation to manage drivers. I worked there for 3 years and they were the longest hardest 3 years of my life. I only recommend working here if u have no family and need to make some quick money. They are crooks and they have the union in their back pockets.
