Very enjoyable job with some downsides
Wind turbine Service Technician (Current Employee) – Louth, ENG – 23 April 2014
A typical Day at work would be either carrying out a scheduled maintenance or fault finding. We usually work in teams of two or three people.
Over the years I have worked with some great engineers and gained alot of experience, not just on wind turbines but in other forms of engineering and even life. I have been on alot of training courses while at ecotricity. I would say that the training when I joined was a higher standard than what it has been for newer employees recently however.
The management is often the most dissapointing part of working at this company. Often organisation is poor and this causes inconviences to the technicians. Some incidents in the past have been dealt with poorly and this has been known to lower morale.
The hardest part of the job can be hectic scheduling and working late on faults that very little is known about.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the variety, travelling around the UK, and working with good colleagues.
Good money, Enjoyable work
Hectic Schedules, Bad management
