Driver review
Ok place to work. Hours can range significantly from 4:30am start to 1am finishes. Stressful and lonely at times with little help from management but union supports well.

Challenging and every day is different.
Working for Translink was a great opportunity for me - I did enjoy the job, my peers were lovely to work with - Helpful to the newbie like myself -
However, it was fast paced and can be stressful if this is something you struggle with, though if you like fast paced, time management and working with all types of people then I do recommend the job. Pay is brilliant, Benefits are brilliant. They really do seemed to look after their employees.

Paid minimum wage which was in £3.50 pet hr i was on part time contract 16 hours but I had to work at lease 55 hours per week go get a reasonable wage. Thief included 2 late nights maybe Tuesday and Friday and sunday at just time and half. So this was Traslink looking after it's drivers who worked for them but didn't pay a descent wage.

zeer gezellig bedrijf met jonge collega's maar ook collega's met kinderen.
Ik heb het altijd naar mn zin gehad bij Translink. Met name m'n collega's. Ik ben daar ooit begonnen bij de receptie en heb ik mijzelf ontwikkeld naar de functie IT servicedeskmedewerkster. Geen dag is hetzelfde daar.

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.
Pros
Free public transport.
Cons
Long hours, told when to take holidays, poor morale, useless management.

grand.
Good atmosphere in the room. The job was a bit repetitive due to the limited nature of the work in train and bus times. Although it was tough to get to this point with the amount of information.

micro managed
The benefits are good but management likes to micro manage and run down employees. Overall a very stressful workplace. They pick and choose which employees they are going to demoralize each week.
Pros
great benifits
Cons
management is awful

Not bad
Please think long and hard before you take a job as a metro bus driver . The managers will always take the passengers side all of the time . Days are long and you will work two Saturdays out off three and one Sunday out of six. It will take you up to three years to get your only set of dutys so you will be a spare driver works more weekends. As a new driver your summer holidays will be in October and November for the next three to four years . It's far from a family friendly job please think long and hard before taking it on . Metro 1 dutys are 04.45 start one week the next week is 1500 till 2345. Metro three dutys are spreads 7an till 1900 with a few hour off in between and metro two dutys are a bit of each of the other dutys all mixed in .
Pros
£11.55 per hour
Cons
Long hours, Translink tell you when to tell your holidays

Fast paced environment
Constant interaction with customers and vendors via e-mail and telephone. Strong importance of attention to time and detail. Very strong company to survive over 30 years in an unpredictable field.
