Great people, poor egomaniac executive management
Manager (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaDecember 7, 2016
Transdev has great employees that care about their performance, work hard in an environment that is wrought with executive management decisions that have poisoned the potential success of this company. Bad strategic direction, poor investment strategy, the top executives are clueless and now have positioned the company in a downward spiral of losses due to their incompetency. Guess who makes the big bucks anyway?

Security of your job is questionable, unless you are a sibling of one of the executives or a friend of the CEO. Communication to the employees is almost non-existent and with so many divisions that cross over each other you would think that this should be a strategic advantage to expand sales, not with this company, it is heavy in silos that do not communicate to each other.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Executive team is clueless on strategy.

Good place to work
Special Construction Lead Track Laborer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CANovember 28, 2016
Good place to work. Unfortunately showing your talents does not go far here unless you have a certain relationship with upper management.
Good place to learn and take your skills elsewhere.

Good company to get back into helping customers.
Coach Operator (Former Employee) –  Englewood, CONovember 20, 2016
Good company to get back into helping customers, but not good about split hours to go to work for because it would take 15 to 17 hrs a day to get the 10 hrs done. It did go along with my save things that need to happen at any work job. Did not get to spend much time with fellow employees, but I did enjoy helping customers.
Pros
Great helping customers and employees.
Cons
Split hours was not good for me because I lived 25 miles from work.

The Worst Place to Work Ever!
Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDNovember 2, 2016
Don't bother wasting your time working at the Baltimore transit location. That is the worst place EVER to work. They are ALWAYS hiring for bus operators which should be your first clue how horrid it is. They can't keep bus operators. Some of their buses are downright dangerous. Maintence is spotty at best. The management is in constant roll over. The schedules are a complete joke. Some days you work 5 hours and some days you work 12 to make your 40. Some of the dispatch team is just horrid, not to mention the "safety" and training team. They start at garbage wages, and don't think you'll get a raise anytime soon. That place is a circus. They're constant telling you that some clowns in California are watching your camera all day waiting for you to do something wrong. Just ridiculous. They're always looking for something wrong. I was never called in for an infraction.
Pros
none
Cons
everything!

The General Manager For Transdev Brisbane is unfit, uncaring and completely unreasonable
Road Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Brisbane, CAOctober 28, 2016
The job itself is rewarding. Helping those who rely on the services, ensuring their safety and well being.
To ensure that all bus drivers are operating safely and effectively as possible. The Horror is a closed minded individual known as the General Manager. This person has managed to run all top level employees out of the company, because she lacks the people skills to conduct herself in a professional manner. Instead of saving these valuable employees. We have all resigned our position including myself.
Pros
Great Clients
Cons
Poor GM.

Prepare to be miserable
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLOctober 26, 2016
The only good thing about this job is the people you work with. Management is horrible, the GM micromanages EVERYTHING and everyone. It is easy money if you are ready to conform to what they want. Raises are VERY hard to come by.
