Great guys, if you arent from a certain area of town, forget promotions

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The good: I really liked everybody i worked with, and the pay was decent. The Bad: They force you through temp agencies for literal years with no raises to maybe have a chance at getting hired. A lot of people just ended up getting fired after years of temp agency service though.

Fun place to work, plenty of skills to learn

Major point here is Having time management skills, u must pay attention to details and come to work. If you have the ability to do these things you will be ok.

Pay is good

If you like not knowing when you’ll get off work this is the place for you. Your expected to treat the job as if nothing else matters including family and any other things happening in your life. There’s a lot of favoritism and they do not care about the safety of their employees when it comes to COVID.

Pros

Great pay, good benefits

Cons

Favoritism, no work life balance

Good place to work with some bad management

Great place to work. The employees are very supportive in helping you succeed with getting the tasks done. Great benefits and pay really worth it. Only some of the management could use a little work but over all their is some good that comes out of them.

Pros

Great pay and great environment to work

Cons

Minimal management issues

High expectations and low communication.

Its a job. Don't expect to move up unless you can kiss butt well. Expected to work overtime at the drop of a hat. Safety program overrides common sense.

Pros

Its a paycheck .

Cons

Breaks are short, pay is low for skilled workers, Communication from management is terrible unless its a group scolding.

Corrupt and discriminating

Discriminate against mental health. Just a number. Will sack you for not brown nosing. Management are a joke and selfish and won't collaborate. Staff will backstab and trip you up to get a contract (if you can get one) as some lads have been there 12 years without one but someone who knows a desk jockey can get one straight away. Pretend to be the lords and saviours of the North East just like Nissan, the Japanese work culture doesn't work with the UK workforce. We work to live unlike those poor souls!

Pros

None

Cons

Everything! AVOID!

Easy work , no progression opportunitys , lack of permanent contracts

The work to be carried out is simple however this is reflected in the poor salary, there is also slim to no chance of being given a permanent contract and there is no room to progress within the company

Avoid

Main assembly is a horrible place to work. Lads are very clicky, don't like new lads and are unwilling to share knowledge of the jobs. Management are inconsistent, lots of sloppy mistakes with regards to production and planning and quick to blame assemblers that they rush for thier mistakes. Overall, half decent money, no job security, no overtime (4hours in 6months), bprepared to be treated like

Youre married to your job.

Without the possibility of getting hired on. They play favorites. This place is full of work drama. They thrive on miserable people. They choose attendance over skill and knowledge. Also prefer people from certain geographical locations.

Pros

It pays the bills.

Cons

Your chance of getting hired on is very unlikely.

Not sure if company is still in business

I am not sure if this company is still in business because I had to relocate. I did enjoy working there when I was there but that was quite a while ago so I am not confident I could give an adequate review.

Decent workplace

The job is secure and has great people to work with. Management isn't the best, have been made to work overtime constantly with disregard for family or life outside of the plant.

manufacting, assembler

It was a good job but wanted more chances to move up in the work place! The co-workers where great but some of the management was not. But it was a good place for the most part.
