Production Operative in Cheadle
on 6 July 2022
Poor Management
Poorly Managed. Health and well being not considered at all. Will happily work men into the ground as long as they get machines out they just don't care. Lads i work with are really nice just need to take a long hard look at the management structure.
Warehouse Operative in Rocester
on 4 July 2022
Way too many team leaders. No appreciation for hard workers, if your face fits or your a mate or related then you're ok. With cost of fuel, no longer worth the distance travelling. Hardly any overtime to make up wage...always capped. Agency staff treated very differently than contracted staff. Union are useless .

Productive workplace and to learn as well
Job it was the most stable job I had, I just quit (with open doors) because family problems, cancer, otherwise I would be still there for sure.Work there was fast paced with the breaks its very doable, you can take you own pace if not working in the production line, and even the production line, you have time to do your jobs and rest 2 min or clean your mask or so ever.I recommend this place to work.If I have opportunity maybe I'll try to join again.
Assembly Operative in Uttoxeter

Interesting Job at times
Not a bad job, pay is decent although agency get paid far less than their permanent counter parts.10 hour shifts with early finishes on a Friday aren't too bad.With so many factories and many varying jobs/shifts etc it is difficult to give JCB a fair review as experiences vary so much.Contracts can be difficult to acquire.

Good place to work
Better than most if not all places to work around here. Until you try something else i.e any of the million warehouses around here, you dont realise howgood it is. I would go back !!
