Good lads to work with in maintenance department, maintenance management were awful though, no management skills or experience between them.
Don’t do it unless you are looking to get treated like rubbish. The place is full of lies, false promises and bad management on the maintenance side. All the normal staff were great lads but the management were awful.
If your face doesn't fit or you speak your mind then they will use underhanded tricks to get you out so you dont upset there apple cart. Lots of theft that management cover up and turn a blind eye to. Raise your concerns and they close ranks. Plants falling to bits and zero investment. Operators undertrained and ignorant in there inability to accept there limits then covered up by production manager when serious problems arise and blame shifted onto maintenance. Lots of back biting and stabbing usually started by the production managers(its a family thing) H&S is a joke,as and when it suits. Group never hear about half the things that go on as its covered up and swept under the carpet. It's a real shame that the very few decent guys there that care about the product have to continue to put up with it.
The people that work on the shop floor are brilliant and hard working. The job itself is enjoyable. However there has been no stable management since I have worked there and with each new set of management the respect for the hard working people seems to get lower. The money is not up to par for the skills required to do the job and the dangers involved with the work.

The company do not support or back their employees I work continental 12 hour shifts. 4 days on and 4 off These are long shifts in all weathers
Area over doubled within 2 months of starting the role and not given much choice but to take it (even though 2 months was the total sum of experience in the role). New managers wanted more paperwork than previously meaning every meeting notes had to be duplicated in different formats.
