Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Southampton – 15 August 2017
I left first group due to new contract of employment, the new contract didn't suit my home life and working conditions, management can go over the top with employee's when dealing with customer complaints, for example (the customer is always right). And your made to feel guilty before proving innocent.
Driver/Trainer Neptune NJ Branch of First Student (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – 17 July 2017
Driving and training for the First culture was very encouraging and easy to understand. The requirements for employment were strict yet necessary. The ability to help maintain a safe culture was a highlight of employment
A challenging cultureand industry but great people
Management Assistant (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 13 July 2017
In administrational roles; every day is different. Colleagues at Management level are most supportive. The Rail Industry is old fashioned and struggles to adapt to change but TPE are learning joining the industry leaders such as Virgin East Coast.
Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Doncaster – 4 July 2017
this firm only cares about profit,safety, cleanliness and customer satisfaction is low on their list of priorities.The pay is good but the hours are long and the times to do routes are always being reduced,resulting in late or missing buses.The drivers are a great bunch but moral is always low due to the pressure put on them.
Uniform, wages, good workmates
stressful days driving, under pressure to deliver a service.
BUS DRIVER (Former Employee) – Bath, Somerset – 27 June 2017
If you like a job where you're being bullied by management this is the job for you as when you first start they tell you that the job is really easy but after about two weeks you are treated like a number not a person
Driver (Current Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 28 April 2017
Don't do it ! Worst run organisation ever, terrible old fleet that constantly break down, expected to drive with faulty bus,always late due to impossible run times and shouted and swore at by passengers for being late, don't believe what they tell you at interview because it's not a true reflection, the only happy drivers are the older ones on day shifts and they don't smile !!!! Look elsewhere for work is my honest advice

Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Colchester, Essex – 13 April 2017
The day is busy always different if you put into the job it can be really rewarding. Overall it is a good job but if you are young and want to progress I do not think that this job will give you the success you want. If you want a long career and know that bus driving is the job you want then First is the best company to work for regarding pay and long term job satisfaction and security. You have to be a people person and be quick witted in difficult situations on the roads and with the public.
Free travel for you and family and good pension
shift patterns and rota's do change alot so no consistency
Trainer/Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 4 April 2017
No room for growth at this location. That is all I'm going to say on record. It has been a great learning experience. I have trained well and with all my heart and in that process I have met some fantastic people,
Driver (Former Employee) – Bannockburn, Stirlingshire – 3 April 2017
Bullying management, knackered vehicles, dirty dirty vehicles and depots. Masonic orange order cliques in depots. Terrible shift patterns , scumbag passengers, no respect, no courtesy. Do not work for this vile company even if your desperate!
Trainee Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Rotherham, South Yorkshire – 24 February 2017
As I read in another review. Bus driving is something u either like or not. I did not. Infact it was a joint decision between myself & first for me not to progress to my test ( that was not first fault) My only warning is that if its not for u...u leave with no job to go to. Plus if u do qualify if u leave within 2 years u have a £2500 training bond to pay.
Financial Accouting Team Member (Former Employee) – Aberdeen City – 17 February 2017
Office had flexi time so there that was a good thing if you needed a bit more time to get to work. I learned so much during my time there, if you wanted to know how to do something you just looked for a course and they would put you on it if it couldn't be done in house. Management were very visible and spoke to everyone, you were always informed of company wide decisions The hardest part of the job was trying to progress, no one wanted to leave so being promoted was difficult. Very relaxed atmosphere, always someone there to help with a problem.
Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Uxbridge, Greater London – 10 February 2017
I enjoy my work, I'm a good team player, I am willing to embrace new skill sets, there is room for me to advance. The hardest part of this job is dealing with unruly/inconsiderate passengers. I get job satisfaction
