Very competitive company. Our managers tend to hire incompetent people that will never progress, so they don't risk to lose their role to a younger employee.

There was no typical day ! Due to the reactive nature of the work for the customer it was very varied. Learned all about refurbishment of company products, when to offer upgrades and give high service levels with a small local team, Management structure changed several times but was generally supportive of the Service Centre. Workplace was very good with very good local and National team spirit. Hardest part was to maintain Service Centre turnover despite many large companies shutting down in the area. the team managed to do this by seeking out new customers. I would like to think that I would be still in the job if the decision had not been made to centralise the Service function of the company in one centre in Manchester. Most enjoyable was all of the above and satisfying customer requirements.
Pros
Working with a good team.
Cons
None, very enjoyable.

I worked on the Night shift. I wokred as a warehouse operater. Booking in goods. Using the SAP system which was a skill that learnt at John Crane. The management were always supportive and helpful. I really enjoyed working with my collegues. We all worked well in a team. I didnt find any part of my job hard but there were challanges that I came across and facing them and solving them was satisfying and I enjoyed this.

Whilst at the company I was working within the Marketing Department. A typical day consited of updating marketing information on the company's intranet. Specifically covering literature updates for numerous products and integrated literature images from associated John Crane global companies. I also help correct the mistakes on their brochures i.e. spelling, images and format. I learnt that there is more to a company with different departments interweaving with one another, but not just internally, but also inclusive of external specialist companies that help design and print the various brochures. This developed my communicational skills by talking to clients and the various people that deal with projects. The co-workers in the Marketing Department were great to work with. They helped each other when neccesary and allowed you independece to learn and find your own way to sort things out. The hardest part of the experience was simply the first hour when I was nerveous and when I was set a new task that with limited experience, but once they had shown and explained the basics I was able to proceed quickly. The entire 2 weeks that i was there were enjoyable.
Pros
Experience with clients

A typical day involves dealing with customer queries; dealing with escalated issues from internal and external customers; daily re-organisation of work load to meet with the priorities of the day. I have developed my ability to thrive in a very pressured work environment. in order to strive to meet customer expectations. I manage a team and deal with the issues that this can entail. I enjoy the challenge that this can present. Colleagues are key; developing positive relationships allows you to nurture a network of contacts which can assist you to evolve in your role; knowing who to contact when you do not know the answer! The hardest part of the job, is delivering bad news and managing the response when the news is delivered. It can also be a challenge getting an answer that you need in a timely manner to keep the communication channels open with the customer. The best part of the job is the challenge. The fast moving pace of a dynamic work environment; meeting and exceeding customer expectations.
Pros
Share save scheme
Cons
Development opportunties

A typical day at work is hectic and very busy. I work within the OBM Team and we distribute the days work between each of us. Helping each other out whenever possible. Sharing knowledge and helping with certain Customers. The Team work well together, The hardest part of the Job is ensuring all aspects of the Order Book are given equal amounts of attention and timely manner and correctly. The most enjoyable part of the role is Customer satisfaction. When you know you've gone that extra mile to ensure the Customer is given the Service they should have.
