Fun place to work minus the backstabbing jealous peers.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fun place to work and learn yet your executive and managers do not appreciate what you have done. Appraisals are based on 'who is next' basis. Very unfair.


Good working envirinment


Backstabbing colleagues and favoritisms.

Good people, bad management

Working with Good team if lucky. Management acts recklessly especially when it comes to customer feedback. Management will fault own staff if needed to pacify customer. Internal backstabbing is a normal. Too much communication issue.

Good foundation but you can do better

Good start for those who wanna join the workforce but you can do better . Ideal for those who are retiring soon . Working hours are hard to adjust so be cautious .

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 .

Operations exec low competency

Its hard to work with low competency exec and yet thinking how great he is. No sign of guidance or helping hand, uncertainty in himself. Management need to select executive carefully. We do not need an admin in ops role.

Poor and bias management style

Though salary is mediocre esp having to work on shift + PHs, what is not forthcoming is the mgt style from the female head for NEL with old school of thoughts. Not receptive to changes and bias in promoting younger staff at the expense of older ones. Also, during off rest days, be prepared to go back for training with no backpay of the hours spent. This is one reasons why I left this company.

Good company overall

My manager was very supportive, and I had very good experience there. The colleagues were helpful. However, the food in the staff canteen could be improved.

Army cultured and top down decision

It is a very traditional cultured company, where the top management mainly from the Army/RSAF. Thus, it is a top-down decision cultured and no work life balanced.Bosses like to micro-managed the middle management, seems no trust in them.


Free transport throughout Singapore


No work life balance for management role, as the bosses will WA even after office hours and weekend, and expect answer asap

Overall Not Very bad

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.

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.


Free public transport

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.


Free uniform and transport


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.
