Not bad if you create a life outside of work
Transit Operator (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC29 November 2013
I can't say being a transit operator was a dream job for me. Evidently, as I quit, it wasn't. If you're the type who is okay with shutting most of their brain down for 7.5 hours (after the first two years - since it takes about that long to be REALLY comfortable driving a bus), then go for it! The pay is not bad at all, though overtime isn't what it used to be apparently.

The customers range from awesome to awful, just like in any field. Same with the co-workers, unfortunately. They're mostly a good bunch though. All a little crazy!

terrible management. lousy working conditions
Transit Operator (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC17 April 2018
Terrible company to work for. Management seems to exist only to harass workers. General Public has little to no respect for the system, or employees of the system, resulting in plenty of abuse.

Supervisor had no experience driving bus, so no awareness of job stressors
