Decent company but ruined by management

Big boys club, alot of gossiping and back stabbing especially from management. If you have an opinion or disagree with instruction you are blacklisted. Massive emphasis on time management and efficiency but very hard to achieve as workshop is so badly run. A lot of promises made at interview that don't happen. Only interested in getting jobs out asap. and getting paid instead of fixing it properly first time, told to let safety defects go and let vehicles back on road. Over book work on a weekly basis, especially at weekends and expect people to stay late to finish. Very high staff turnover

Cons

Management very poor

Slow paced, weak management

The work is slow paced, the product is decent but the wages are the lowest in the industry. Scania still believe the privilege of working for their brand is worth more than a fair wage. The franchise dealers pay much better and have more rewards and benefits.Working hard will not be rewarded and you won't get promoted as management is an old boys club and they stick together, promoting friends and family over capable people. Office staff will be treated better and rewarded more than the workshop staff who actually generate the income.They continuously go on about being the "premium brand" but at the same time don't supply the workshop with enough equipment or PPE to last a full week and be safe. The brand and profits are infinitely more valuable to them than your well being.But, if you want an easy, no pressure workshop role, you can just cruise along doing the bare minimum and still get paid.

Pros

Decent product, low stress.

Cons

Poor wages, poor perks, management

More work than time

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.

Pros

None

Cons

Hours, pay, on call, mandatory weekend work
