Good - my great supervisor and the lovely colleagues I work with. My pay check. 30 days leave. Chance of redundancy in the autumn - please please please.
Bad - everything else: high stress, very short time limits on every single task, too many reports, too many changes, a bloody dictator woman at the top of the apex. In fact, all of it.
I used to love my job, before that unreasonable "bleep" was brought in from outside and appointed top bitch.
I'm not working now but for my last job:
Shift work love the flexibility...
Shift work very unsociable however after 17 years am institutionalised and don't think I could go back to 9/5
Good: Good pay, lots of time off, travel,free food
Bad: Weeks away from home, hardly ever working with the same people, no longer challenging but not many options left that don't require moving home. Long shifts, night shifts.
Good? Well I went swimming today.
Bad, I had to pay for it myself and I'm on the minimum wage.
Take a few other point - no chance of promotion. 12 hr Night shifts for £30. Unsocial hours, screws up training. No money to do the things that are needed.
I work from home
i dont clock in or out
i get paid direct every four weekly in bank
not much thanks for it though
Good: Everything I touch turns to Skittles
Bad: I dont like Skittles
Have to go now I think im being followed.........
Catching fraudsters knowing i am pissing them off...
Not bad pay..
30 days of holiday..
New Boss..micro managing ...
Commute..(the guy who sat next to me farted and the smell..)
Bad not being able to sleep after nights ! had no sleep for 2 days
Work at Vauxhalls theres a big annoucement tomorrow could be out of a job........
Its a job in these hard times and pays the morgage
Bad. I am now going to work for the night at zero notice to earn 2 buttons and a broken comb. To be yelled at all night. Joy. Not.
btw - the noisey people don't understand. They aren't being nasty just very loud. It's very draining.
the conversations not good either. Unless you think that repeating the same few words over and over is stimulating.
As a bus & coach driver ... good things: 1:Some of my workmates are total w****rs but most are ok, some are good personal friends of mine. Most I connect to on Facebook. A few I socialize with off duty.
2: Good genuine passengers who stick with us through thick & thin. We appreciate them!
3: While the pay isn't that good, it's not that bad either. A lot more than some people get.
Bad things: 1: Passengers who do nothing but moan & groan & abuse us no matter what we try to do for them.
2: Workmates who do nothing but moan about their 'rubbishy' job. There are thousands on the dole who would happily do it for them AND be paid for it too!
3: Our management! Our Union is brilliant & do a good job but the management are self-obsessed!
So there's good & bad things involved with our industry but I love driving buses & coaches It's a job & a wage which I appreciate.
