Unipart Rail are on the whole an excellent company to work for with the main assets being the workforce. However feel the company is in decline especially as ageing vehicles are removed fleets and the reliance of train operators on Unipart Rail reduces so potentially challenging times ahead. Recently some of the Management styles have been poor and the overall direction of the business confused.
Some Management Styles
The good things A progressive and diverse organisation always looking for new ideas and seeking feedback from all levels of staffing to improve services. Given autonomy over your work and no micro-management. Feel like a valued employee and part of a team.
Lots of great theories and ideas put forward to customers, none of which are put into practice by Unipart Rail themselves. Culture of blame and zero support or direction given when needed. Typical old fashioned Public company culture with a huge silo mentality trying to apply itself in a market soon to be more open to competition. This business is a disaster waiting to happen. Some staff are great, others are dangerously hopeless yet completely unaware of it.
Close to the motorway.
Negative culture and direction.
Official response from Unipart Rail8 May 2018
Thank you for your review on Unipart Rail. We are disappointed you feel the way you do and would like to confirm that the company have robust internal policies and procedures in place to deal with issues similar to those highlighted. In addition, we have various employee forums which offer the opportunity for ideas and concerns to be raised. We would also like to add that the company has recently been awarded a Silver IIP accreditation and has achieved world-class employee engagement scores.
Good atmosphere most of the time. People work hard on the job and for each other and not just within and for the teams they are in. This isn't recognized enough. Excellent training but a silo effect still endures.Need to get more young people in as a demographic time bomb looms in the product knowledge areas.
poor wages comparatively

Jobs at Unipart Rail
Unipart Rail are very friendly, they are their to help their staff with personal issues as well as the workplace. A typical day was to go into email and arrange audits for the company auditor to go into its suppliers. Also get information from the buyers and engineers as to what they would like discussed within the audit. I learned a new system to use which was SAP where it held all information on the suppliers and how to upload information onto it. co workers were exceptionally friendly and would always help if got stuck on something. Making contact with the suppliers as not always happy to have an audit when they are required to. Sending out the certification when a supplier had passed the audit and knew they would not be required to have another one for 3 years.
The outside help offered such as health support
Management always clock watching to see if anyone was late without asking reasons why
