Train Manager (Current Employee) –  Swansea, Swansea22 September 2018
There is a low moral at Swansea. The majority of management working there such as the Guard's manager's - customer Host manager's are more interested in gossip and how they want to humiliate and report colleagues if any concerns have been done. At GWR in Swansea, there is not such thing as trying to confide in your colleagues and managers. Most of the senior managers are probably related to other people and as a consequence use this to try and uphold their ability to being a non follower of the GWR rule book.

There is a GWR rule book and the managers rule book. This doesn't get published in theory, but in reality, does fully exist.

With immediate effect:

Employ managers from an external company such as Capita UK or managers from other stations such as Plymouth to perform Swansea recruitment. - This makes the recruitment process fair for everyone.

On board bosses who work at Swansea should be sent to different depot's to work and have manager's from a different area, who are independent and less bias towards the substantial relations here.
Pros
Free Travel
Cons
Too many relations - two different rule books
