I enjoy working with Transdev. Although the training could be more comprehensive. I learned my route, but would be asked to help out with other routes. Which I was more than happy too of course, but I did not know the other routes and felt as though they were setting me up for failure. I believe if they train their employees on all of the routes that would not only help the drivers feel more at ease while driving but also give their customers a better experience.

They give you something to do and want it done with no guidelines or hope to reach a positive goal. They tell you one thing and gang up on you To make you the fall guy. They use other companies models to work for them. They won't let you share in the concept of your location. And the people that put information out forget that they once where on the floor.
Pros
Great co workers
Cons
No true understanding of the job focus

Management is very supportive and likely in total works harder than the drivers Easy when things are right but never are things "just right" I will say that I value my time there and while there is huge room for improvement the group as a whole is extraordinary. Make it through the first few years... things get better

Good place to work, decent benefits and work culture. Good place to work if you like flexible and an independent work environment. This applies to jobs that are mid level and above.

A typical day is very stressful, due to the "first come first serve" rule. Trying to pick up as many passengers as you can then get back to the airport as fast as you can to get more passengers. As a independent contractor, you will need a second income, as i found out after the fact, to make a living.

Great place to work, good working environment and lots of benefits. The people are easy to work with and there are opportunities for growth. If I did not relocate, I would still work there.

Need to motivate employees . most of the time new hired don't keep their job more than a year .Sometimes some of them leave the before six months. More training would help new hired keep the job.

Where do I start. Oh, let's start with salary. They start you off with $15.10/hr when most start you off with $17 or $18 per hour and the salary tops off at $18/hr so you can imagine how long it'll take you to get there.

They're under a new contract with Loudoun County with lots of stipulations from Loudoun County that is put totally on the drivers from missed trips to not wearing a belt. TransDev will lose money if something is not being done. Management makes sure we do our job so that they the company protects their bottom line which is that money but doesn't want to pay us what we deserve.


Health insurance is garbage as well. Besides the monthly premium, we have to pay an out-of-pocket amount of between $1,600 - $2,000 deductible per person per year and prescriptions have gone up as well.


You have to work 6 months before you see your first 8 hours of leave which also serves as your sick leave because they don't give you sick leave. As a result, you can't take a much deserved vacation because if you do and you get sick that you have to be out of work for a long period of time, you have no income to pay your bills, rent/mortgage or anything else. Plus, they'll point you for missing work, so in other words, you're screwed.


Finally, saving for your retirement, they have one under Fidelity but not only do they not contribute a dime to at least match what you put in but they don't schedule reps to visit us to talk about how to improve our financial portfolios, etc.


So, to summarize it up, this company doesn't care about their drivers and don't want them

The position itself as a franchise driver is a great job in general, but the fees that you owe the company are very high for the long hours that you have to work in order to take care of the basic life necessities.
Pros
travelling, meeting people from all over the world
Cons
long hours, low pay, high fees
