Desford Caterpillar

The job was extremly repetative and training was very poor the one weeks training turned out to be three days.Being sent home regularly because they didnt have parts to fit So no work no money.Agency workers get all the bad jobs a joke avoid this place.Your lucky to do a full week.

Pros

Weekly Pay

Cons

Zero hour contract

Excellent shop floor job

Caterpillar had its problems but all in all excellent pay and working conditions...if you can put up with the monotony of assembly line work. After 8 years I'd had enough.

Pros

Outstanding pay and working conditions for the kind of work done.

Cons

Boredom

productive and exciting place to work

cummings generator technologies or CGT was a fun exciting and pleasant place to work at. the people i worked with i still keep in touch with now. i had alot of fun times at cummins and would change my experience and time there apart from not liking being a temp agency worker. the rate of pay was great and it was brilliant doing set standar hours each week.

Pros

pay rate

Cons

temp work

Enjoyable to work for

Great health and safety, with good learning opportunities. work is fairly easy and great for those on a permanent contract. Generally a great group of guys. Time off sick is not advised as they come down pretty hard on those that do. hardest part of the job is the shift pattern. best part of the job is the ease of it for the hourly pay

productive and a safe place to work

my job was repetitive, i built the same part 31 times a day, but was moved to a different station 8 times during the year to prevent boredom. i enjoyed working in a team, i learnt how to function in a team very well. management were good, they made sure you were doing the work required without being to pushy. the hardest part of my job was getting up early in the morning but this soon same natrual to me so it became normal after a few months. the most enjoyable part of my job was hitting targets and working in a team.

Pros

three breaks a day, good holidays

Cons

long hours, repetitive work

assembly worker

The day was organized by the team leader with understandable, clear instructions.I learned the values and commitment of CAT procedures.Management were concise in their ideas and leadership.My co-workers were helpful and taught me my role within the work place along with the team leader.The job was fairly straight forward but the quality and job procedure was high.The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and working with the people.

Pros

the people, occasional free food.

Cons

no cons to speak of.
