Terrible place to work, specifically within production, long hours, shift pattern plus over time sucks the life from you, lack of tools and resources for the job roles, production managers unprofessional, they challenge minor details as to avoid real production issues, highlight a real concern and they scratch their heads in despair, treatment of agency workers is shocking, no opportunity to progress, poor training and poor conditions. Avoid if possible.
A great place to work and very health and safety conscious. High quality products but not very organised with training in new skills. Good pay but sadly due to a drop in sales they have made a lot of redundant.
Good rate of pay
Slow to train people
Many difficult and long days. Access to management is not good. Some departments rarely see their team manager. Training is limited, no training structure plan in place for many departments.
Long hours, poor training
My shift starts off with paperwork checks on the process machines. I have to check that all dimensions are correct and within spec, check that all product used has been put on the sheets for traceability. I do this on 2-3 process areas. I have to sit in morning meetings and go through the production and any other issues in the last 24hrs. I have to do goods inwards inspection on various parts, whether its for test and terminations, production or maintenance. I work closely with test & terminations witnessing any tests being carried out and reporting back to my manager with any concerns. Sine working here I have learnt a lot about power cables, umbilical's and subsea parts. The people who I work with are very professional at the scope of work that's in place here. The most enjoyable part of the job is probably when the cable leaves the factory, either by sea or road . This to me means that everyone has worked together and completed the task in hand and also provided the customer with their product with no problems.
Continentil shift work
typical day at work would be driving forklifts to load/unload lorries, packing cables on the drumsdriving a 52 tonne forktruck around yard.ive learned how they make cables and drive bigger forktrucks and cherrypicker.i got on with the management and done what was asked of me.got on with all the lads a good bunch of blokes.hardest part of the job would be driving the 52 tonne forktruck fully loaded being guided by three other people telling you where to go.the most enjoyable part would be looking foward to new challenges.
