Bus Driver in Victoria, BC
on 6 August 2022
Helping people

Pros....helping people with disabilities, driving, work on your own Cons....low pay for work performed, too long to wait for benefits, non guaranteed hours to start

Dispatcher/Customer Service in Victoria, BC
on 24 November 2022
High stress low pay

No actual defined job description and no coaching of company philosophy or expectations. High staff turnover for a reason. The clientele was nice but the staffs level of entitlement was very noticeable. Lots of work if you want it do to high absenteeism on a weekly basis.

Very cliquey and dead end

Working in the Victoria BC for awhile and this local office has gone downhill quickly . Many staff quitting and communication is pretty much non existent. Asked to work overtime quite a bit but now people burning out .

no thats it

Management is awful. Not supportive and disrespectful. Pay and benefits are good. Company is only concerned with one thing. You guessed it making money!

Driver/Maintenance in Surrey, BC
on 11 March 2022
Fair and approachable management

Fleet is well maintained, Management is approachable and fair. Can take time to get a balanced full time work schedule depending on position. Most drivers enjoy the job but there is little opportunity for other positions.
