A typical day at work working through careerlink was catching the bus to the placement working 8 - 4.45 and working with some interesting and different people. I learnt how to manage with set backs and how to push on when things were not going the way they had been planned. The hardest parts of the job were never knowing what was going to come in, having to deal with the majority of the problems within the factory and getting the brunt of the blame when parts were not in stock although that wasn't my role as goods in. The best parts of the job were being able to do things to the best of my ability and seeing success for myself and my colleague on goods in. I enjoyed working with everyone there as I get on with all people but also because they took me for me and enjoyed the spark I brought to Assa Abloy.
Horrible attitude from the conductor. Information from various staff members contradicting the advert and each other whilst I'm in the room. They are script readers, I filled in the form exactly how it asked me to,yet the conductor was adamant that I 'HAD' to fill in these other bits, until I pointed out she was wrong. The conductor was not pleased to be made to look foolish and proceeded to argue with me about my reluctance to fill in the DBS form they provided me, even while I was holding my current and valid DBS obtained the last time I worked at this position. The conductor had no idea how to do their job and was treating me like I was the idiot because they didn't know how to go off script.
worker (Former Employee) – Smethwick, West Midlands – 26 November 2019
The people working there are stuck up. Considering I am a reliable worker I work all the shifts they give they still treat me like nothing. I called once to let them know I cant make it, she was stubborn and and argued over the phone. Rubbish place to work, people don't care about you, Individuals are discriminated and marginalised due to race. So many of these people are racists. THINK TWICE BEFORE WORKING HERE.
