Decent holidays and pay

Cons

Long long hours

Bad place to work

Bad place to work. Employees being treated like trash. High employee turnover, 20 mins breaks, no place to park and its your problem, minimum salary and no opportunities to develop if your face doesn't fit.

Pros

nothing

Cons

everything

Avoid.No respect for staff at all.

Toxic working environment.Management are shocking.They seem to think you can do more than one job at once while the lazy workers get away with doing not very much.Instead of dealing with slackers they expect you to do your job and help them at the same time.No team work at all.Childish antics on the line allowed.Certain staff leave their position to walk about talking to others but because they're in the clique it's allowed.Never worked in a place where screws etc are chucked up and down the line as if your back in high school.Promoting from within isn't any good when the line leaders and pc's have no man management skills and your more likely to be treated with contempt rather than respect.High staff turnover with new starts walking out mid shift.A lot don't even last a few days.There are plenty of jobs about and you would only want to work here if you were desperate, even then you will leave pretty quickly. The wage advertised should be NMW plus shift allowance because if you do overtime on dayshift it will be your standard 9.50 per hour.Didnt think sweat shops were allowed in the UK but it feels like it when it's hard grafting for 11 hours of a 12 hour shift.2x15 min breaks and a 30 minute breaks your lot

Pros

3x12 hr shifts.Nothing else

Cons

The list is too long

Physically and mentally draining

There have certainly been pros and cons at Mitsubishi Electric for me so far. I don't believe it's anywhere near as good as some on here make it out to be, but don't feel it's as bad either.Working on nights, you're there for 12 hours 3 nights per week. Plus an extra Saturday every 4 weeks. It's hard, hard work and isn't just a case of doing 3 shifts. It takes a lot out of you because you're standing pretty much all night with a fast-paced line (considering things are running well). By the end of the week your feet will be killing you but there's plenty of time off afterward.The work itself isn't difficult, at least the jobs I've been given so far. Pretty straightforward but keeping up with the pace is the most difficult part. They'll train you to an extent but really you're just kind of thrown in after being shown something once or twice maximum. It's very sink or swim and the truth is that the high turnover symbolises that it really isn't for everyone.The most frustrating thing for me so far is the amount of times I've been moved to different areas. I've gotten to know people who have become good friends on my line only to be plucked with no prior warning or notice to another line or another building on the site altogether. All of a sudden you're never seeing those people again and you're then trying to build up new friendships in your new area. The most frustrating part is that you effectively feel as though you're back on day 1 of the job. Very frustrating and makes you feel pretty uneasy.At the interview they also went on about company progression. And whilst they - 

Pros

Helpful colleagues. A good way to stay fit.

Cons

Break times very short, Progression within the company not as likely as they make out. Favouritism, Can be moved to different areas without any warning.

Good Hours.

It’s not exactly interesting work, but the hours are very good and supervisors and managers are nice. Pay is okay, would recommend to working there to anyone looks for work in that industry.

management was unfair

some managers made it feel impossible to have a healthy mind at work, especially if you’re young they tend to pick at younger audiences. when things are made clear that you’re uncomfortable about something or the work you are doing you’re struggling, they don’t understand how you can’t do something as fast as them or are even struggling. you’re made to feel stupid, the higher management need to be paying closer attention to supervisors, line leaders etc. the things they say and do can be horrible

Pros

free coffee, holidays are paid, good experience and job improvement etc and overtime is an option

Cons

the management, the system

Repetetive

All the production operator jobs are extremely repetitive, if you like standing about doing the same task daily without any change then you might like working here. At first you think it's easy money, but give it a few weeks and the novelty of doing the same repetitive job quickly fades.You will find line leaders and "so called" higher up people are like mini-hitlers, they only get pad a fraction more than you but they think they are something special, and they will have favourites, and often never talk to others, just whatever takes their fancy really, and they never seem to be doing much other than turning up the line speed, walking about, or sitting at their desk.The place can be a joke too in how everything is run, expect parts to go missing, parts to not be ordered, equipment to break down as it's all old and ancient, and then if no work instead of sending you home they rather you just sweep up and pretend to be busy.The pay is decent, but you can get similar jobs where you do different tasks so each shift is a little different, you will not get that at Mitsubishi Electric, and get used to looking at the clock so you can enjoy your long 10 minute breaks.

Pros

Free Hot Drinks

Cons

Repetetive Work

Company

poor company to work for. They don't care about the workers at all. All they are bothered about is getting the products out the door. Had a work related injury to my hand and they didn't fill out apporate paper work that should of been done to company policy. Was singed off sick and then they sacked me for been off. Due to an injury that happened because of them not doing apporate checks on equipment.

Cons

Company doesn't care at all about employees

temporary job, it wasn’t for me

This was my first job after leaving school, I felt this job wasn’t for me as I don’t think the workers were treated fairly, the hours suited me well and the company was local.

Horrible company to work for.

Absolute horrible place to work, job is not secure as they make it out to be. Worked here for a few months but Was constantly sent home early for machines being broke. Team leaders are useless too.

Pros

Good people that you meet.

Cons

Poor wages. Useless management.

Would be an ok place to work with regards to the easy work but very boring repetitive jobs and the management are a bunch of mini Hitler's.

Tedious and Painful

A typical day in the bush is spent rushing around due to things not being prepared. Management in the bush is clueless. Best part is the people you meet

Pros

Collegues are Great People

Cons

Management Team doesnt think before they do everything
Was this review helpful?

Productive, friendly, welcoming

Working on the line within a team building parts and keeping the line running smoothly, carrying material and moving stock to designated areas. Being on your feet in the same place for long hours isn’t the best, but having three break times and the environment makes up for it.

Pros

Days off at weekends, and paid every two weeks

Cons

Repetitiveness

Excellent hours, pay, perks, tiring work.

Mitsubishi Electric is a standard Factory/Production Operation job. The pay is great, the hours are great, and the perks are okay. the management is questionable, however, as it's a large place with a lot of employees, so it's hard to tell. If you enjoy standing up for 9 hours a day with barely a chance to stand up until you get home, then this is the job for you. The pay is great and the company provides a lot of opportunities to work your way up.

Pros

Excellent pay, opportunities, hours, cheap breakfast.

Cons

incredibly exhausting work, depending what you do there.

Job review

A typical day included working as part of an operation team assembling heating systems, I learned various skills which progressed me to become team trainer when new starts arrived. the work place culture was OK but sokn became very robot like with not much interaction as a team which became the hardest part of the job, there wasnt much team interaction or conversation throughout the day. The enjoyable part of the job was the good hours, it made balancing family life a lot easier.

Pros

hours

Cons

no team interaction
