After been working for 6 months, They terminated my work without any valid reason. To be very honestly, I worked real hard as a high reach forklift driver in inbound at Ingleburn Schneider electric. I always presented myself at work on time with out taking day off without any valid reason. I always achieved my target (in put aways). Even I showed my interest in company for further training.

It was very fast paced and stressful in management but satisfying. As a leader you were given the opportunity to grow and make decisions right or wrong it was great to learn and grow as a team.

Schneider Electric is phenomenal place to see and work with the right circle of people around you but in any case every side has a down. Useless agents who promise the world but can only give you crumbs your bound to receive your pay a day later than usual because of irregularities at the very least 1 every 3 months. It's hard to talk and work without being told off and some High reach have a seat belt.

Top performers were given salary review on par with inflation.

Senior managers who wear multiple hats are too busy to know the reality, but rather only react on figures.


Good direct line managers who show respect to employees, with good work life balance. But their effort is undermined by mediocre pay rise for even top performers.

All the management are very seniors, and expect us to work 7 to 7 or 8. If you have young family, this is not the right company. Lack of management skills. Make you to work on everything(even if you don't know about it nor trained on it) and there is no job profile work. My JD was saying a Sales Support Specialist and they are making me to work as a data entry person. Under paid for more stressful work. I got told to work from home 2 days in a week, after i took up the contract they are not allowing me use this option. Micro management, lack of guidelines, I was leaving 3 pm one day because of my son medical checkups, and my manger asked me when i am covering those missing hours, but i work from 9 to 630 everyday and he never asked me why i am doing extra hours of work. I worked with a quite nice MNC's and i never had this kinda experience.

I learnt a lot in my year with Schneider as warehouse operator.
This being my first role in a warehouse environment, I had a lot to take on board and process as working in in a warehouse was an entirely different work setting to the one in the retail industry where I had been very confident and successful for the past 17 years.


I am a fast learner so i picked up on basic daily procedure and operations within the first couple of days.

I expected far more extensive training during the first couple of weeks, however due to my progress i was more than capable managing the workday on my own within the first week there.

I learn best when thrown in the deep end so this worked well for me.


The rest of the training unfolded in a natural progression throughout the year.


My two team leaders were extremely approachable and easy to communicate with making it comfortable for me to raise any questions or concerns , request further training in different areas and roles in the warehouse, and make suggestion on implementing better strategies for our working environment


A typical day at work would consist

- Coming in 15min early and preparing my work station for the day.

- Replenishment , general housekeeping , prioritising customer orders by area code ready for me to process . Shipment deadlines applied for some of the orders so they had to be sorted as first priority.

- Team meeting with team leaders before every shift

- Processing, invoicing and packing orders from picking slip

- When quiet picking stock using RF scanners or picking slips

- Sorting parcels

Pros
Occasional free lunches hosted by recruitment agencies
Cons

Days were interesting and Fridays were a short day which meant I could do shopping that afternoon if needed. Learned the ins and outs of working in a manufacturing plant, including warehouse work.

Difficult place to work in due the political chalanges and empire building throughout the senior management levels.

Good diversity of employees & integration.

Very capable & dedicated teams of good people.


SE Internal Business Units (BU) are difficult to integrate to provide a totoal solution therefore margins are erroded through xBU inefficiencies.
Pros
nice clean working environment, close to shopping mall & train station
Cons
Long hours, travel could be a royal pain, Not enough car parking spaces, Management Politics, Career advancement limited in middle to lower rnaks, the SE 5 star rated building is uncomfortable ... hot in summer and cold in winter

Management and business unit structure is fragmented, making it very difficult to pull together winning bids across multiple Business Units. Australian operation is more aligned to transactional rather than project business.

There is a family like atmosphere here.
