Overall Not Very bad

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good benefits, good bonus (low pay), low retrenchment, resulted alot useless staff who are on "retire" mode. Appraisal system is very bad unless u are very good with your bosses.promotion depend on years on service. high turnover rate this year, majority are age 20-40 prime age staff.

They do not take care of senior worker

No job satisfaction. Resentment towards older workers. Many unproductive workers got cold storage in a department which affect the active ones. Recent changes in the organisation resulting in changing for the worst.

Productive

Good salary and bonus plus there is monthly incentive. Working with the long timers is a hassle as they are insecure about their position and they won’t help you or teach you.

Pros

Free public transport

Cons

No ot

Not a good company to work

Nothing much to say good things about this company. Once you are employed as. Bus Captain be prepared to forget your work life balance and family time. Break time and meal time not fantastic. Worst still increment and bonuses sucks.They cut drivers increment and bonuses to save money. Please don’t come here to work .

Fun people to work with

Not bad environment, but very routine job. Too much of politics everyone keep comparing each and other, management nice to your face but behind their just as evil

Stressful but can earn money

Stressful from the management, Pay not bad but very easy to have trouble because i am a bus captain, Old school management from depot head. I am from ulu pandan bus depot. Worst depot head you ever ask for. Ask bus captain to do impossible stuff. Does not care about bus captain welfare. Serve him right to have legal case on him.

Pros

Free uniform and transport

Cons

Long working hours. dont protect locals well enough

Fun working

I like to work as a part-time job.But only that now they does not need any part-timer staffs as they would prefer to have more full timer. So we have to leave the company and find other part time jobs to work.

A good place to work and enhance your skills and knowledge but not a place to retire.

Sadly... The salary here is very small, most older staff here are being underpaid, they are not being cared, they are the ones who have been loyal. According to Google Survey, SBST Rail's basic pay is 28% below national average. More than 15 years of rail experience, with a recognised Diploma from a top Polytechnic, and your salary is not even $3000.

Pros

Good environment.

Cons

Salary.

Good place for retirement

They care for the older workers more than youngsters. They tend to take care of themselves first instead defending their own team. Once you made a mistake, you are being targeted. People working there dont take initiative, only know how to act blur live longer. Those who leave are either they can work very well, or they cant work at all.

Not A Good Culture

After graduation from University, I had gotten a job which is filled with lower education colleagues that had been working for more than 5 years. Extremely bad culture with seniors bullying junior employees regardless of your ranks upon entry. Extremely bad culture where bosses do not recognised your contributions but always finding your faults. If it was not for the better salary, I would have left much earlier.
