It is a hard place to progress in.
Mechanical Technician (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen, Aberdeen City7 November 2017
Arnold Clark is a hard and challenging place to progress in. It offers many roles with an ever changing environment. It's not a bad place to start a career with but there is not much room for progression.
Pros
Plenty of benifits
Cons
Never think about their staff as the equipment is outdate.

Hi – Lynne here! Thank you for your review of your time working for Arnold Clark. It seems overall that it was a pleasant experience!

I was happy to hear that you had such a rapport with your colleagues. Having that positive morale is always beneficial to any type of role you may be in. Your only con was hard work, it is a challenging role but I’m happy to hear this didn’t seem to hinder you too much!

Hi – Lynne here. Thank you for leaving this review and I’m sorry you’re having a troubling time at the moment.

I was concerned with many of your comments. I take on board your comments regarding long hours, and I know our valet teams have a challenging role as there are strict deadlines to be met. However, while sometimes it’s important to go the extra mile, even if it means staying a bit later, things should run more smoothly than the situation you describe. Please remember our People Team can be contacted in confidence if you have major concerns in your role; we would be more than happy to help.

I really hope you find the right balance soon and things start to improve in your branch.

Lynne McBurney,
Arnold Clark Group - Head of People
