Any Oxford Bus Drivers Out There???
I was wandering if there were any Oxford Bus Drivers knocking around in the Forum, either Stagecoach or OBC. The reason I ask is this. I am moving out to Oxfordshire from London in March. I have always wanted to give Bus Driving a go, so much so that I have been trawling through the internet and researching the job for a good few years now. I've found very mixed opinions of what life is like as a Bus Driver, some hate it, some love it. Seems like a Marmite job to me? And I love Marmite, so I may well love driving buses? I'm going to take the plunge anyway and see what becomes of it!
Anyway, I digress. I have applied for both Stagecoach Oxfordshire and OBC, with an offer of assessment from companies. I cannot find a single bad word about either operators in Oxford on the internet. I know that OBC is owned by the Go-Ahead Group and that their staff generally have good things to say about the company. So to that end, are there any drivers here that work for either operator? The pay for both companies seems pretty good (compared to my 22k I'm currently earning in London) and I'm taking the lack of unhappy rants online from Drivers is a good sign. Maybe.
