Mechanical Engineering Apprentice in Portsmouth, Hampshire
on 26 September 2022
Steady work, never rushed but keeps you going
Great name to have behind you on any CV from an apprenticeship point of view, many places will see the name and be impressed and will probably expect you to have done more than you actually have on the apprenticeship. Very relaxed work environment and could always have a chat and a laugh with colleagues. Salary for an apprentice was very good when I went through as was earning more in the last year of my apprenticeship than in either of the 2 jobs I moved onto following my completion of the apprenticeship. Company is very health and safety driven and makes sure everything is done by the book meaning you can feel confident you won’t be asked to do anything that will be a danger to yourself or anyone else. Great company benefits and if it’s still going advise anyone going there to sign up to the employee shares scheme, great way to get money behind you for a later date.
Apprentice Manufacturing Technician in Blackburn

Slow paced
Very slow paced and takes too long to perform any job, the work itself is very easy however the workload is that little that you find yourself clock watching all day.
Electrician in Glasgow
on 10 September 2022
Reasonably good pay, but believe me, you'll earn every last penny of your salary as management will squeeze every ounce of work out you and you'll go home exhausted every night. This is why they give you Fridays off. You'll need three days to recover from your 4 days at work. You'll need to feel comfortable about working at speed. This is not the job for anyone who likes to take their time and work at a slow pace.

Nothing technical. The interview process was to short and didn't focus on my capabilities.
