If your face does not fit you not move on within the company regardless of previous experience. So if you just want to go to work and do the same day in day out this the place for you

Nightmare

The manager at Newark depot is toxic and makes working uncomfortable and not at all enjoyable. Staff turn over is proof of how she makes people feel and try’s to create discourse between colleagues

Pros

Colleagues were brilliant

Cons

I loved my time at A-Plant

The management team can be approachable and listen to your concerns. I found my work life balance towards the end of my time at A-Plant horrendous. I miss my time there and wish I could go back.

Pros

Great people you work with

Cons

Long hours

Good place to work new manager was ruthless in the right way gave me a great opportunity to drive hiab lorry’s and I will always be grateful for that chance

Pros

Easy shift

Cons

Some amount of two faced guys in the place

poor management

Working as a mechanical fitting in A Plant I found the management to be poor, often been managed by underqualified people such as joiners and cleaners. unable to understand the mechanical job role and failure to supply parts when needed. the management in this organisation is poor and when pulled in for any failure of mechanical components they will ask HGV drivers for advice due to there connection / friendship with them, which yet still to this day leaves me puzzled. there bullying technique towards there staff is very atrocious and yet there HR department fail to investigate or act. having been giving the chance to attend a disciplinary meeting as a witness and see a fellow college being verbally assaulted with abusive language being used towards him and being unable to act leaves this organisation as the worsted one I have ever attended having worked over 2 years here it is safe to say this will not change. I hope this helps you understand a small part of this originations way of carrying things out.

Pros

you get left alone when at brake downs.

Cons

management is poor.
