Thanks for that, delighted just can't wait to get started now, I've been driving for a small bus company the last year and love to drive busses so I know I'll love this.

The one after a couple of months I can understand, But the guy who left just after probation!! Strange to leave after that length of time, then again maybe a better opportunity came up.

1 it's a job for life
2 I'd imagine you need to be thick skinned
3 I've dealt with drunken fist fight on board aswell as rowdy teenagers trying to rob cash among other situations so I think I'll be ok dealing with the public so long as I don't let it get to me?

Hope so anyway
