I don't recommend BT.
I signed because Bombardier is a famous name, because my interviews were very positive and because I had no job at that time.


I did a real mistake that I regret. Now a day I am waiting to learn enough and get experience to quickly move to a real company were I can be happy to work in.
Pros
Projects are interesting and challenging. Colleagues are nice.
Cons
HR are terribly bad, no training, no career plan, no management, very bad compensation and conditions, no recognition

A locomotive manufacturing company that really a hands-on job. Everyday I want to come to work to learn new things. I was lucky enough to work in this esteemed company. It gives me interest in acquiring more skills and experience. I worked with different employees with their own unique way of making things done easily and safely. The management provide us the needed tools and equipment needed for the job. Safety is paramount in doing our daily tasks. Everyone is adhere to it. My job is hard as I did not know yet but as I go along, it becomes easy and i found comfort and sense of understanding because there's always someone like me who are there to help and assist you in doing the job.
Pros
Equal opportunity and respect for everyone
Cons
Bad mouthing

Only due to the position moving interstate did the role become untenable as the local market became increasingly restrictive thus positions were rationalized and redundancies were introduced.

Starts with toolbox meeting and job allocation from service coordinator. I've learnt to work efficient and productively over a shift and to get tasks done safely and as correctl. Management, helpful and encouraging in productive and safe work. The workplace culture at Bombardier is excellent with a wide variety of cultures. The hardest ting is to keep to scheduled time for jobs so trains can run on time and the enjoyable thing about working there is that it does have a great work culture.
Pros
Great atmosphere and free coffee, tea and milo
Cons
none

Reporting to supervisor on arrival to discuss the jobs for the night.

Deciding on work procedure with other co-workers so everybody knows who's doing what and where we are working for a safer working environment.


Communicating with management reguly on any updates on the job.


Hardest part of jobs is making sure trains get out on time for their daily runs.


Most enjoyable part, working under pressure and completing everything that is thrown at us for the night shift.
Pros
Great co workers
Cons
Night shift

Greet workmates & start work, review current progress against projected completion date. Main task was building, wiring & testing Main Electrical Lockers for train driver cab. Keep Foreman up to date with progress. Learned to work quickly & accurately to a high standard. Had a great team who supported each other. Due to absence or modifications we often had to swap roles to complete more urgent work which sometimes meant doing overtime. Being unable to complete a job due to missing parts. Clean, friendly relaxed atmosphere & being able to work unsupervised.
Pros
new clean factory. close to home & town. r.d.o. variety of different work.
