Pros: Management trusted the Team Leaders to do the best job possible and left us alone to do it.
Cons: Drop in work loads and shortage of materials to do the job.
Over the past couple of years the work culture has changed dramatically due to the announcement of the car companies closing, but before it was a happy place to work, the management were easy to work with and approach.
I was selected to learn business management, Cert 4 Engineering Cert 3 and also an electrical course,
The men I worked with were easy to get on with they knew their jobs and knew I was there to help out when necessary, I was a " hands on " Team leader and don't mind get my hands dirty.
Recently, because of the drop in morale, there were a lot of absences which meant we had to do the same job with less men or in- experienced men in my area
The most enjoyable part was the interaction and trust between me men and myself.
