I have been working at Arriva Trains full-time
Excellent benefits - free travel on ATW network and discounted rail travel in the UK, Europe and World Wide. Generous maternity pay and one of the best paid employers in Wales. Plenty of opportunity to progress within the Arriva Group.
Annual leave allowance is low, have to take annual leave for bank holidays. Little or no opportunity for part time working.
Advice to Management
Offer family friendly/flexible working hours for parents, increase annual leave allowance.
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Arriva Trains.
Interview was okay. I was interviewed by two employees, they were very pleasant. The main focus of the questions was regarding the company, the roles within it and how it worked. There were almost no questions about my experiences and my strengths, which is what I had prepared for, so unfortunately I lacked the answers they were looking for. The interview lasted around 30 minutes.
