Stagecoach is a Hire and fire company
Bus Driver (Current Employee) –  Dover, Kent10 September 2017
the work life balance is very poor working 12-13 hour split shifts over a 4 day week you may start a 05:00 and finish as 17:00 and will be asked to driver for 5 hours without a break. you may finish at 21:30 at night and then be back for 06:00 start the shifts are not good you also start and finish at different locations and have to travel back to get your car in your own time. This is the reason for wanting to leave.
Management poor no communication from the Director's down to local management no one listens. The buses are in very poor state and you as asked to take them out with minor faults.
Pros
good pension and healthcare packages
Cons
long hours only paid for 10 hours a day for the driving but working 12-13 hour shifts

Good company run by bad people!
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Yorkshire and Humberside31 August 2017
The title says it all! On paper it looks great, it's just a shame that the "big-wigs" who do the hiring of managers/directors don't understand or care what us "earwigs" have to put up with!
Pros
Free training
Cons
Bad management

PCV Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Northampton24 August 2017
you are just another number to them
no one in management actually goes out on the road to see the prblems the drivers face on a daily basis
and it seems no one from Stagecoach Head office is interested in the problems at the depots as long as they dont loose mileage.
Pros
good rate of pay
Cons
long hours, some rotas 60+ hours, no overtime rate every hour is paid at the same rate

Ok for single people with no family
Bus Driver (Current Employee) –  Chesterfield, Derbyshire12 August 2017
No good for families particularly younger people. Work well if need shift swaps etc but it's all bed and work. If your face fits you will have a job for life. If not then watch your back

Terrible job
Driver Ex (Former Employee) –  Nuneaton3 August 2017
The only benefit to working for stagecoach are the friends you make in other drivers! The management it terrible you truly are just a number within this organisation never valued or respected.

Avoid this as any kind of work life choice your never home and worked to the bone. Family life means nothing to them

Nuneaton depot is an absolute joke stuck in a time warp it is reminiscent of being back in secondary school. A huge turnover of staff.
Pros
None
Cons
All the worst an employee can offer

The job is ok, but you do work long hours and tend to not have much time at home, which can be a bit detrimental as to why we go to work in the first place
Pros
Free bus travel
Cons
Not much free time

Terrible regime to work under
Driver (Former Employee) –  Herne Bay22 June 2017
I am 64 years old and had quiet varied career but have honestly never worked anywhere as awfull as Stagecoach. The turnover of drivers is staggering. Long duties short breaks,often just one 45 min break in a 12 hr shift. Forced to work bank holiday at the same pay rate, oh you will be given a lieu day but hardly ever allowed to take it.
Treat like an animal by the management. They keep control by keeping everyone in fear for there job. If you think you can cope with being employed by Stagecoach I wish you good luck.
Pros
Regular pay
Cons
Were do you start

Don't do it
Driver (Former Employee) –  Lancashire3 June 2017
Nasty back stabbing company, full of brown nosers and management that talk to you like dirt. Avoid this company. Good points is they put you through your test for free and you might have a good depot with good management in your area but the experience with the depot in my area was disgusting.
Pros
Pay is okay
Cons
Everything
