May not be for you if you strive for the best
Typical day - You will be stood at a bench all day (minus breaks) using manual, electrical and pneumatic tools to assemble a variety of electrical components manufactured by Mardix and other third party companies.What I have learned - Nothing from any management however my team leaders are very helpful but seem to be overwhelmed, running around 'putting out fires' as one might say. Management - They appear to live in their own little bubble and come across as very rude and have a demeaning attitude and like to belittle anyone below them. The managers that I have met all appear to show zero people skills and shout very loudly which shows a lot about them as follows;1)Poor coping skills - It is their go-to coping mechanism in difficult situations. 2)Loss of control - they feel a loss of control over the situation.3)Feeling threatened - Bullies are often people who have a very sensitive core emotional psyche and they are trying to protect that core. Anytime they think this core is being threatened they react. Shouting is one tool that they proactively use anytime they feel threatened.4)Aggressiveness - They need to control their anger, I recommend anger management classes.5)It's a learned behaviour - They haven’t learned proper coping behaviours when they are faced with conflict and difficult situations. Shouting has always been their go-to reaction to situations in which they find any sort of turmoil.6)They feel neglected - They shout because they feel no one is listening to them so they resort to raising their voice instead of holding a private intellectual conversation to get their point across.I have almost zero respect for the management that so choose to raise their voices to shout and its a clear sign of their vulnerabilities and inability to carry out their roles as managers in a professional manner. Workplace culture - The average employee (not including the professionals in the offices) appear to hold very little academic background. I think the stereotypical grease monkey from any car garage would fit in nicely. It is a shame as I felt that being offered a position working for "The uk's leader in critical power system's" would offer industry standard training and potential career progression for any aspiring individuals. So in a nutshell if you have common sense, manners, a professional working attitude, respect for others, ambition and of course an education then I would suggest you look elsewhere or alternatively you could bring up some of the points listed above in your interview which may help you in your decision on whether to make the leap.Hardest part of the job - Having to switch off your brain when entering work to an almost idle cycle.Most enjoyable part of the job - I feel this has to be the sense of achievement in what you have done that day to high standards, seeing others learn and helping others that struggle.

Electrical Fitter in Kendal, Cumbria
An untrustworthy company.
I would avoid working for Anord Mardix. The Human Resource Dept are puppets to the directors. If you can go elsewhere do so. They are a international company in name only. Do NOT trust them!!!!
Dry powder paint sprayer in Preston, Lancashire
Dont work here if you have soul as the management will destroy it. Breaks are 7 or 8 mins long because you are expected to be back at your bench before the buzzer goes.people are bullied and forced into doing overtime if you dont do 60+ hours a week you are made to feel worthless. No social distancing measures whatsoever. People are made to share ppe. Avoid this place at all costs.
Factory Floor Worker in Kendal, Cumbria
Managers who haven't a clue about the industry who order people about to get the result they want whether or not its the correct way or not. 100 mile/hour to get the job out just for it to go into storage. People who don't know what they are doing hide behind experienced people and take credit for their hard work. You only get a promotion if you have been there for a short time and know nothing. If your a 'YES MAN' and don't know what you are doing you will certainly go far. If you are knowledgeable or experienced stay clear. Health and safety not sure this company knows what that is. Put it this way if you work at ANORD MARDIX you have had a magical vaccine that you didn't know you had taken because they think that everyone is immune that works on the factory floor. Only seem to have care for the office staff when it comes to covid-19, oh sorry they try to care about the floor staff when HSE turns up to do a review. Look up the word lie in the dictionary and it's says ANORD MARDIX underneath it. They advertise people jobs and offer more money to people coming in off the street who know nothing. I honestly can only say that the best thing there is the banter is good between the guys on the factory floor but if you get caught laughing you get hunted down, stared at for god knows how long and some body will get one of their minions to come and try to give you a wording to instill fear on the factory floor. If people wanted to have that atmosphere they would have attended school in the 1920's. The spying is horrendous its like these guys have camo that blends into panels you only know they have been watching you when the minions turn up and tell you that you haven't been working.
