Your expected to work faster, harder, more efficient than is humanly possible with no recourses or time for low money. They pick their favourites and if you don’t fit in then don’t expect to get much help.
Hours, pay, on call, mandatory weekend work
The company is very good at promoting that they care about their employees.This is far from true, All they care about is money. You are just a number to them!! Having said that the people I worked with were great! It's higher up the chain that spoil it! They don't give two hoots about the lower level workers as long as they are getting their fancy trips away and big bonuses! Would NEVER recommend working for them nor would I work for them again.
Higher level management is bad
Core values do not match what is experienced day to day. The culture is dehumanising and the attitude towards customers is that they are a problem to be ignored. This kind of mindset is rewarded whereas if you try to improve the situation you receive no support and are told to stay in your lane. Insufficient training and no advancement opportunities for current employees. Bad H&S protocols and now support from HR.
Long hours, no support
This is the worst company I have ever worked for! Especially the central finance department where the staff turnover is over 50%. The management are not qualified to do the job, there is no training and support at all! If they don't like you, they will destroy you. People either leave or are sacked and up with depression. If you are a good "game player" you might survive. Avoid this place if you want to be happy in your job!!!!!!!

Really lovely place to work. Modern and up to date. plenty of social activities, meetings and lovely people. Staff are really friendly. I was only a temporary contractor but was treated like all the permanent staff.The job was full on, time passed quickly the months I was there.
This job role gave me many skills on a daily basis. This was a very customer service based role as I was using the telephone, answering and making calls as well as speaking to customers face to face. On the other hand, there are many other skills I developed while being in this role, I was on the computer most of the working day using this for admin purposes such as inputting customer data and using different Microsoft Office packages. Scania also use the system ‘Autoline Live 8.35’ that is used on a daily basis. This role gives me a lot of confidence in customer service.
Not a bad word to be said about Scania, fantastic company to work for. Would happily return if given the chance. Great example of a together workforce working together to achieve their goals.
distance from home (not company's fault)
