    Anyone Work or Has Worked For Lothian Buses?

    Just wondered if anyone has worked or currently works as a bus driver for Lothian Buses? I'm starting work as a Trainee Bus Driver in a few weeks. I've read a bit on their site about the training but just wanted to hear what it's like from anyone that has done it and what the actual job is like? If anyone has any insights that would be greatly appreciated.

    I got bumped for a job by them a while back despite driving the bus and reverse parking it no problem. Good luck in your new job buddy.

    Was it in the 5 week training you got bumped? That’s the thing I’m worried about the most is getting bumped from the training as I’m giving up my job for this and there’s no guarantees. Read a couple of stories about people getting told they aren’t up to tye hob after 3 weeks of training, those were down south though.

    My mate got bumped at the final hurdle, he telt me the final test (I think it was the final test)was taken by a burd that didnae like him. He said he’d had a wee difference of opinions earlier in his training and she defo had it in for him. Said he passed her after his fail and she had a big smirk on her face... that’s when he called her a ****.


    Think I might nip over to Gorgie Farm and count some Chickens before they've hatched

    Nah, i went for an interview and they asked me to drive a bus round this wee track and then reverse park in between some cones. I didn't hit anything, not even a cone and I got a rejection letter. Maybe i was supposed to destroy everything in my path

    That's messed up in both instances. I'm feeling more nervous now about it, hopefully I've not made a mistake going for this.
