Under pressure to obtain sales on a daily basis. As long as you acquire your targets then you are pretty much left alone to get on with things. Otherwise things can become a little prickly
Past good performances are quickly forgotten if things get bad
Typical day at work. vehicle checks load the delivery on then deliver . Most mornings the deliveries was not ready and you would be waiting for over half a hour. Branch manger was unwilling to listen to you concerns and opinions. Favoritism by the branch manger if the face fits. Two drivers and one office staff allowed to take company vehicles home. On quiet a few occasions the vehicle taken home by the office staff was left empty.Health and safety was non existent only when it suited. The vans were often unsafe to drive ie Tyre with a nail in it for over 6 weeks or more large cracks in window screens. One vehicle clutch had gone but was still driven for up to 3 months. on all occasions this was pointed out to the branch manger who ignored the concerns. Branch manger acted in an unprofessional manner. . The enjoyable part of the job was meeting your customers.
Often working over your time with no thanks or pay.
Have worked in the engineering supply chain since 1986 "started with Brammer in 2004 who then went on and purchased Buck and Hickman in approx 2014 i dealt with the MRO on engineering side with Brammer Buck and Hickman were the tools side
40 hr working week between 8.30am - 5pm Free onsite parking and onsite cafe plus games room Good location for public transport, close to Manchester Airport Metro stop Everyone works hard but supportive of each other European Company but good working relationship throughout the company
a person will get a disainary for being found guilty of sabotaging the whole business but another person will be fired for being accused of verbal abuse and the person had a ‘witness’ who’s probably their best friend. Management are ok but there’s always a blunt tool in the shed. One or two employees seem to infulence one of the managers decisions. They sit in their comfy office all day and come out at the end and go on like they been co-ordinating everything but really they’ve been just sitting on their bums scratching their privates
One or two numbnut managers who can’t do their job
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Working for Brammer was an experience. I learned a lot while I was there. Management used to be unsavoury but a lot has changed and improvements are being made. During my 3 year employment I saw a very high staff turnover, which is unlikely to change.
