Hello, just looking for any current DRS employees to give me an insight into rugby or London depots
I'm looking to apply, seen they've had the post on their website for nearly 1 year. Are they struggling struggling recruit because it's a crpa place to work ? Any info, advice would he greatly appreciated

Thanks

1820 hours a year plus no RPS pension.

Why would any qualified drivers apply?

1820 hours is what initially put me off, a full 228 more then what is currently in my contract, and then worsened by the lack of decent RPS pension.

Potentially you would get to drive comfy new locos if that is your thing!

I think the total hours listed must include holidays as it's definitely a 35hr week at DRS.

Gb is only 1600ish hours a year though.
Correct it was 1616 excluding holidays. As of April this year the working weeks has been reduced to 34.5 and the total now includes holiday which is credited at 8.45 hours a day. 1826 is now our total
