Something different each day

Friendly bunch of guys to work with. Always a story to tell at the end of the day. Plenty of work with minimal downtime. Supervisors can sometimes be nerve racking when something does not go to plan

Pre delivery technician 2017

Worked in pre delivery got stuck on hubcap changes all day. Very negative attitudes from the two older pre delivery technicians and a lot of favouritism in the pre delivery workshop, but the guys in the main shop seemed ok. Waste of time for me personally. Management/workshop manager needs people skills. Also noted very low worker morale, workers would often complain about not advancing after working in the shop for years and not being trusted on the job.

Pros

None

Cons

Hometime

Very productive and fun workplace, great people to work with, opportunity to learn operations in new sectors and grow.

Every day at work was rewarding, and I loved going. I would get to my station half hr early just to set up, to unlock my tools and get out what i needed and have it ready, to find out my line-up of different variant truck cabs for the day and order any small parts I needed if I wasn't stocked up for the day/week. I got along great with my supervisors, line technicians and co-workers which made my days even more enjoyable. If I wasn't hungry on my breaks i would just work through them and if I ended up being ahead I would take a walk down my line to see if anybody needed a hand with their station because I loved being a part of something so great. In doing so I was able to learn numerous different stations and add to my skills matrix. Volvo trucks was the first job that i was actually keen to get out of bed for at 3:30/4am and get ready for. So I guess the hardest part of my job was to leave each afternoon and most enjoyable part would have been waking up to start my day off. I also loved the hrs 5&6am starts with the odd overtime which i loved and the option to work over the christmas shutdown period which i always took.

Pros

Excellent canteen, regular learning experience and career development opportunities.

Cons

none.

Unacceptable work/life balance for management. A culture of under resourcing and overloading. Lack of support from overseas managers. Don't walk the talk, don't listen to managers on the ground.

Not treated with respect

Excellent Company to work for

High Quality Commercial Trucks are manufactured each day. The work is difficult, but rewarding. I have learned so much about building Trucks and what it takes to build quality into the product from the beginning of the Design process through to the end.
