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.

Standing long hours, not fixed shift timings, difficulty to go for toilet break if you work in the train. Always go out from home very early for 1st shift and when you work for 2nd shift, you go back home very late by 1-2am.

Not a place for Singaporean to work.
Walking here and there without work to do. All jobs were given to Malaysia, said "We are here to steal there job". Have not learn anything, there is no hardest part of the job.

Competitive and fast-pace environment
The workplace is not for the faint-heartened - It is truly a challenging work environment to be in. Nonetheless, should one overcome this obstacle - the personal benefits one can gain from this exposure is plenty.

No pain, no gain - that's what I like to think of.

Productive and fun workplace
To begin with, i record the data of bus timing, bus plate number, number of passengers entry/exiting the buses on the record sheet at various bus stops in Singapore.

I learnt to sharpen my estimation skills, hence providing a more accurate data. I also learnt that an eye for detail is very important, and hence, i acquired this skills.


The management is quite lenient and flexible.


Moving on to the workplace culture, it is teamwork based and accountability is very important. I have to report to my supervisors about my whereabouts and be responsible for my work done.


The hardest part of the work is that, it tends to get crowded during peak hours, and it tends to be challenging to keep track of the headcounts of the number of people entering/ exiting the bus. (required for data entry)


The most enjoyable part of the work is that this enables me to be a freelance worker, i can have worklife balance and work at my own will.
