A job till you find a better one
Driver operator (Former Employee) –  Kilbirnie5 February 2014
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

Most toxic work environment in Wellington!
Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Wellington Central, Wellington27 May 2019
Toxic work environment at NZ BUS Kilbirnie!!! Give this company a definite miss. Much better opportunities for bus operators out there. The operators are trained without taking any personal needs or circumstances into account. Drivers are not ready to face the unreasonable demands set by management. Very dangerous working conditions. Management sweet talks trainees, with NO support after you pass your exit exam.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to mention here.

Shut up and do as you are told
Duty Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Auckland City, Auckland4 January 2019
For the drivers it can be very challenging work driving around Auckland in peak hours. Getting leave approved is very hard due to staff shortage. No benefit or bonus for high performers. Union also not helping the company to be more efficient and positive. New route training wasn't enough and drivers were forced to carry lives to streets and areas that they weren't trained for at night. If you are not a white person don't bother apply for any management role. I have seen many coloured workers who are capable but weren't even shortlisted for interview chances. Run by australasian capital/fund management company enough said for staff welfare.
Pros
Pays salary/wage on time every week
Cons
Bad management and low staff morale
