Not much training when you start your role and you just have to learn everything yourself as you go. Very much a blame culture, no one looks for solutions when things go wrong they just look to point their fingers at someone!
Good company benefits
A good variation in working roles, great on H & S, friendly helpful workmates an enjoyable atmosphere to work in. A three Shift pattern of Nights (10-6) Evenings (2-10) and Earlies (6-2) with options for overtime in week and weekends as per workloads required. On site and off site training.
Sounded great, all the standards flaunted but management and customer relations below levels expected. Engineers treat awful. Seem unable to learn from mistakes and change. Old school thinking. Need new blood to implement changes.
Not a great place to work no time to plan your day or any training for the job,also very long hours as to meet monthly targets was near impossible, on the flip side working at that level was a good learning experience.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Usually parts are not provided at the key stages of jobs and then there is always a huge rush at month end leading to unsociable hours for shop floor because of poor foresight. Feels like constant pressure to cover other areas failings. Great workforce on the floor though.
Lots of nice people, OT when needed
good and interesting job.busy for your full shift which was good.poor organization which meant you had to leave one job and start another.management was friends of friends,some which had no engineering skills and were out of their dept.highly skilled workers badly let down from above
bonus sometimes, pension
not tooled up for the jobs
A proactive company with excellent senior leadership, with vision to succeed in their marketplace. Growth is through aggressive acquisition and integration of new companies can be somewhat slow.
excellent working conditions
average salaries inb some roles
Throughout my apprenticeship it has been a good place to work although with the downturn in oil happening it means there is now no job security. The working day is 12 hours although theres is a lot of time off so it creates a good job work/life balance. The training isn't always great what can make the job slightly harder at times although i enjoy the challenge. Overall it has been a good place to work but with the oil and gas downturn it looks like ill need to move elsewhere.
Good Interesting Job
No Job security.
