The job as a whole is OK but if any complaints come in about you there is absolutely no backup from HR, the driver always seems to be in the wrong, you learn that its better not to talk to anyone while driving, management have no idea on how to run a bus company or talk with the drivers, the majority of the drivers are nice people,the hardest part of the job is dealing with managements incompetence, the best part was going home time
Pros
Split shifts if you lived close to work
Cons
Dealing with the general public was hard

As other people have mentioned.... it has changed hands to many times... Pay rates at present for an 'old hand' is just over NZ $21.00 yet some trucking companies start their driving staff on $25.00 plus allowances. No matter what is said, NZ Bus will not listen. Stupid shifts with long hours, we work all shifts all hours yet are not allowed to claim the extra weeks holiday or other allowances paid to shift workers... Absolutely no support from upper management
When I first started we had a great social club, good hours, subsidised cafeteria and had a real good management team.

Now it seems AT have their hand,feet and mouth in the pie telling the company do do it THEIR way only.
Pros
Non left
Cons
nearly everything one can think of
