Having spent 35 years at a bus company that merged to become FirstGroup, I was initially a Crew Driver, then One Man Operation, Supervisor, Depot Manager and ended in a Special Managerial Role. If you’re flexible it was a wonderful opportunity to learn and experience an interest and varied employment. As no doubt with any working experience there were complete idiots, average reasonable working colleagues and some exceptional work mates who were highly valuable with whom to work.
Overall I would give the people and the jobs a 90% success rate. They biggest significance is how you approach the job and your attitude to those with whom you work.
Where possible treat them as you would like to be treated. Nobody will please everybody, but if you try not to exploit your situation but do as good a job as you can and the bus industry is a good life.
