Not a happy work environment
Bus Driver (Employé actuel) –  Vancouver, BC29 octobre 2019
Dealing with the public Can be very challenging. As a driver we are held accountable for everything from accidents to people not liking the tone of your voice or the way you look. The company calls you in and you have to go on your own time to deal with issues. No coffee or lunch breaks and sometime no bathroom breaks.
We are treated like machines.
Points positifs
Pension
Points négatifs
Dealing with the company and you have no life. 12 hr days for 7 1/2 hrs pay

Union a criminal organization
I can't tell (Ancien employé) –  Burnaby, BC26 octobre 2019
If you have any ideas about improving the system the union will hurt you.
The management is coming from the floor with no influence in union dealings. A long history of abusing good workers

A good company, but drivers are treated unfairly. Customer over Employee...
Coach Operator (Employé actuel) –  Surrey, BC18 octobre 2019
Depending on the route, day of the week, time of the day, quite of few runs are poorly scheduled, creating a stressful environment to work in. You can either end up with some or all of the issues. No bathroom breaks, food breaks, aggressive or hostile passengers, drivers.

And if you do get the opposite, you can have a very pleasant day. It seems the culture is of the employer is to take direction, ideas, suggestions from drivers lightly.

Waste of life, supervisors are like gangsters, they behave aggressive, bully enviorment
Bus Operator (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC8 octobre 2019
I dont recommend this job to anyone who have family and small kids, your life is important for you. Operating supervisor behave like gangsters. You make one small mistake on road being as human, they investigate as you did some murder and you will feel like you are a criminal sitting with 4 -5 investigators. There decision is always same before investigation. Union is no support, they just beg votes, union and old people working have mutual understanding so no matter what happen, fault is urs only
Points positifs
Fake satisfaction
Points négatifs

I love my job
Operator (Employé actuel) –  North Vancouver, BC13 septembre 2019
It's a great company to work for but the job can be very stressful at times. The management is supportive but rotates quite often. My supervisors change frequently. Once you have a few years of seniority, the work is flexible, as well as days off, and shift hours can be selected to fit your needs.

It is what you make it, pros and cons
Conventional Transit Operator (Ancien employé) –  Surrey, BC7 août 2019
I enjoyed working as a driver, meeting and greeting all day long. Working with most of my co-workers was great. We tend to get sick more than the average worker due to the amount of people we encounter and that doesn't bode well with management and we are punished for it.

Horrible toxic environment
Can’t devulge (Employé actuel) –  New Westminster, BC28 juillet 2019
There is no support from management unless your in the inner circle and willing to go after your own people for every and any little thing they do. It’s sad that there is a saying that goes around the company “ they work hard to hire you and even harder to fire you”
Points positifs
Pay and benefits
Points négatifs
Too many to list

Good secure job.
Commercial Transport Mechanic (Employé actuel) –  Vancouver, BC13 juillet 2019
Overall it’s a good company. The environment can be taxing for outside mechanics. However training is good & the four day work weeks are nice. It’s not a place your gonna get rich. Deductions add up to around $3500 clear a month for a certified mechanic. However the pension plan and benefits are great.
Points positifs
Work life balance, training, benefits, pension plan
Points négatifs
Cliche environment, confusing management

Unhealthy and toxic environment
Transit Operator (Ancien employé) –  Surrey, BC30 juin 2019
Love the people I work with as most operators have an understanding of what you are going through. If I had a choice to not comment at all, I would take that option as I don't like talking negatively about any employer but that is mostly what I have to contribute. Often, the passengers can be quite rude and verbally abusive without provocation.
Points positifs
connection with other drivers
Points négatifs
Because the company keep cutting the running times, there are constantly decreasing breaks between runs.

Work for the income and benefits.
Transportation Bus Driver (Ancien employé) –  Surrey, BC8 juin 2019
Great place to work because of the staff . Management was great
up to 2017, thereafter they started to focus on employee harassment.
I believe this was to remove as many senior employees as possible because we earned more vacation time and other benefits .
Points positifs
good income
Points négatifs
senior management

Stressful, fast paced training program.
Trainee (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC7 juin 2019
Seems like a decent company, but the training is very tough and fast paced - you need to be able to learn very quickly. If you already have your class 1 or 2 license and air, you STILL have to do the ICBC courses and tests for them over again. Count on 1 to 3 hours of homework every night. Instructors are very good, company culture is 100% by the book - if you don't get with the program and be a team player, you're out. You'll be scrutinized very closely, every little thing you do that isn't company policy or procedure will be recorded and held against you. Any prior transit or bus driving experience means nothing to this company...very arrogant attitude, as if they're the cream of the crop, and they monitor employees Facebook accounts - if you say anything negative about CMBC on FB, it will land you in the managers office. Major Big Brother syndrome. Trolley training is very tough, and they expect you to learn how to drive them on route in revenue service within just a few hours behind the wheel, and they don't have A/C (none of the buses do, except the very new ones). Also, everyone goes on about how you can make 100K per year, but the deductions are around 30% per cheque. Average cheque during training is $1225 every 2 weeks, at $22.85/hour, 75 hours. Do the math. 14 Hastings route is an absolute freakshow, and driving a trolley around downtown can be harrowing, especially in Granville Mall. During the recruitment process it's all roses and sunshine, but that changes as soon as your training starts.
Points positifs
Good money after 2 years, good benefits and pension.
Points négatifs
Horrible shifts with huge splits, lots of drug addict passengers, major deductions on your pay, very demanding training, trolley buses, buses have no A/C.

Worst culture.. outdated systems ... tons of grey areas... no life
Operator (Ancien employé) –  Vancouve22 mai 2019
It is a job where they want to to become immune to things, loose your personality, keep working and never get sick.. especially during probation. All the time you would be given a feeling that you should thank the Lord for getting this job. Work culture is fear based. You do this .. they will fire you . You do that they would fire you... they invest time and money to hire and train and then want people to work in fear. Guess they want scared drivers not confident drivers.

The environment is for someone who doesn't want to have a life. The aspect of work and life is far fetched and operator is treated like lesser mortal.

Money isn't great either... for 1/10 th of the stress you would get similar pay in any other company or field.

Hiring new people doesn't mean culture would change. It's an old school culture and they seem to be not interested in changing it. If you are new you have to live with split shifts.. basically you are at the depot all day, do a small run and then after couple of hours do the second run. Keep listening to the stories of old timers at the bull pen who have nothing fruitful to talk. Everyone wants to be a trainer and keeps telling you things everyday, Union... let's not even talk about them.

Most people leave in training and few in the first few months. It is certainly not what they talk about during the interview and training.

Hiring too many people. If someone wants to leave they dont even bother (the HR) to call and do an exit interview for feedback. They are living in a myth and shall keep doing so. Wake up.. next century is here.

Stressful workplace with unpaid split shifts
SHUTTLE BUS DRIVER (Employé actuel) –  Vancouver, BC17 mai 2019
It was disappointing to work for a company that encourages using transit but makes it almost impossible for their employees to get to work by transit. Thought accommodations would be made if you didn't own a vehicle but not the case. I was encouraged to buy a car, rather than use my bike and transit system for the benefit of the company's needs
Points positifs
Free Transit pass for you and family, Blue Cross benefits
Points négatifs
12 hour split shifts that you only get paid 7.5

Micromanagement obsessed with disciplines
Transit Operator (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC13 mai 2019
They spend up to a year to hire you, and they will spend the remainder of your career trying to discipline, suspend and threaten to fire you - the company culture is built upon fear and punishment - keep your head low, keep your mouth shut, show up to work everyday, try to smile and drive the bus - nothing more and nothing less. Management needs to show they are hitting their targets on managing frontline employees, so expect to get called in and punished for little things like leaving late from the terminus because you had to take a dump or finish your sandwich, having a conversation with another fellow passenger, cutting in front of a car that didn't want to let you pull out of your bus stop, being sick for over 3 times in a calendar year, etc. If you ever get verbally or physically assaulted on the job, you are expected to stay in your seat and take the abuse, then deal with the aftermath later on by yourself. Operations will call you at home to "fill out the paperwork" and "go through the standard procedure", once they hand in their papers, check their Ts and dot their Is, you're then on your own......you're just a number on the computer for all that they care.

Everyone pick their work hours and routes based on seniority, expect to go to work twice everyday over a span of 12 hours, or work late nights over the first 1-2 years, and the work hours gradually become more consistent as you earn seniority. Work quality is going downhill as quickly as your seniority goes up, so don't expect to land yourself on cushy runs anytime soon at all, as they are becoming increasingly
  plus... rare these days. Run and recovery times are getting cut left right and centre, and guess who definitely gets yelled at by passengers if the bus is late? Lol.

Statistically proven - over 40% of all sick book-offs are due to mental stress and depression - the number speaks for itself about what kind of job and employer this organization represents.

Your a number
Transit Operator (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC16 février 2019
If you want good pay and benefits then this is your job
If you can handle high stress and abuisve passenger and problem solve on the go here you go. The job as a bus driver is high stress with a high turnover but you can make it amazing experience for yourself. The inaction between fellow drivers is great and as for mgmt your a number and not a person.
Points positifs
Good money and benifits
Points négatifs
Your only a number and not a person
