Ok, but could be a lot better.
Disorganised company with far, far too much lower and mid level management all out to make names for themselves by walking all over the drivers. Every manager or inspector has their own interpretation of the rules so drivers have no idea of where they stand. Useless new radio system and disinterested metro control room leading to driver stress, especially for the huge number of new drivers being churned out of the training school and thrown straight onto the BRT scheme.
BRT driver morale is through the floor, drivers feel that their concerns are being fobbed off by management and the Union is toothless against them, unreliable hi tech buses forever breaking down and never fixed, constantly changing policy on operations contradicts itself on a near daily basis leaving drivers in limbo and constantly expecting to be disciplined. Drivers now have the mindset of being expendable when being sent into West Belfast knowing there will be no CRPO staff as their management pull them out at the first hint of trouble. Huge turnover of drivers as a result.
Good holidays but dates are fixed for you, decent wage but long hours, very poor work/life balance. Not a family friendly job.
Free public transport.
Long hours, told when to take holidays, poor morale, useless management.
