Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Crewe, Cheshire1 June 2017
It's a nice place to work if you like sitting behind a desk for 8 hours. I can't fault the staff, employees or job itself, the sitting down for a length of time just isn't my cup of tea.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Doncaster16 April 2017
Good atmosphere most of the time. People work hard on the job and for each other and not just within and for the teams they are in. This isn't recognized enough. Excellent training but a silo effect still endures.Need to get more young people in as a demographic time bomb looms in the product knowledge areas.
Pros
excellent training.
Cons
poor wages comparatively

Unipart Rail look after its employees, the work is challenging and demanding and you are expected to perform your duties to a very high level.
Head of Sales (Former Employee) –  Crewe, ENG13 March 2015
Unipart Rail has allowed me to utilise all of my sales and managerial skills developed over many years in business.

To be an effect leader in the business you need the respect of all, it is important to be able to manage up as well as down but once accepted it is a great place to work. Developing strong compelling propositions for our customers and being in a position to support my staff and help them to broaden their knowledge and develop their account management capability is extremely rewarding.

Audit Support (Former Employee) –  Doncaster, ENG13 March 2015
Unipart Rail are very friendly, they are their to help their staff with personal issues as well as the workplace.

A typical day was to go into email and arrange audits for the company auditor to go into its suppliers. Also get information from the buyers and engineers as to what they would like discussed within the audit.

I learned a new system to use which was SAP where it held all information on the suppliers and how to upload information onto it.

co workers were exceptionally friendly and would always help if got stuck on something.

Making contact with the suppliers as not always happy to have an audit when they are required to.

Sending out the certification when a supplier had passed the audit and knew they would not be required to have another one for 3 years.
Pros
The outside help offered such as health support
Cons
Management always clock watching to see if anyone was late without asking reasons why
