Electrical Tester (PAT) in London, Greater London
on 6 March 2020
Was actually allowed to do the job properly
worked there for a long time, typically a day for an engineer consists of travelling to your first site (sent to you to previous afternoon) testing electrical equipment using a basic but serviceable tester and tools and completing minor repairs as necessary ( replacing plugs , fuses, trimming back damaged flexes ) reporting any unsafe equipment to the site contact then recording all results, getting the customer to sign for the work and accept the invoice amount on a PDA then uploading it to the office and getting your next job. I learned a lot of customer service skills and generally got on very well with the clients and I became confident in upselling additional services. Management average: Immediate supervisors all good guys who know the work, handlers all pretty good and try to keep you earning, scheduling was sometimes not ideal as you can arrive at the wrong time/day/address occasionally but it can normally be sorted. the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to test equipment (almost always 9-5 and weekends optional) to an acceptable standard and not be forced to produce a ridiculous amount of results which means you are forced to take so many short cuts you aren't doing your job properly. working at different locations and meeting new people was great and helping clients to understand how to keep their premises safe was rewarding. basic salary plus performance bonus as is pretty much the norm but working in London and having proved myself reliable and capable reaching a decent bonus was never a problem. this is hard work - you have to put the effort in but if you don't then you wont enjoy it or earn good money.I made a decent living here and would work for them again

Worst place to work
Worst place I have ever worked Wouldn’t call it a profession place when your manager greets you in the morning saying morning you slag’ as well as many other names

Avoid at all costs
There are better jobs that pay more that are just as easy to get. The management is appalling, there’s next to no training and if you do anything wrong the manager will immediately blame you as if she wasn’t the one who forgot to teach you 90% of the things you’re “supposed to say” on the phone. The customers are rude and arrogant and I wouldn’t wish this job on my Worst enemy. If you don’t mind being treated unfairly, constantly watched and scrutinised for everything you do (because of the complete lack of trust they have for you), be taxed more than you should, have an uncaring HR department who will do nothing about your problems (I handed in a 2000 word official complaint about my manager and they did nothing about it) then feel free to apply. They’ll hire you. (Unless you’re foreign because the old floor manager asked my manager not to hire any Muslims as they “cause trouble”. If that gives you any idea of the kind of workplace this is.
Portable Appliance Engineer in United Kingdom

The harder you work, the more you earn.
I spent 7 years with UKSM ltd. During my time I had ups and downs. Made a lot of money Didn’t have to worry about fuel costs to work (company vehicle) Great Christmas parties. Met people from all walks of life. But where there are good points there are also bad points. I worked very long days. I worked away from home 75% of the time. Personal life took a massive hit. Some customers were very abusive when handed the invoice (pricing structure is nothing to do with the engineers)
