Don't do a good enough job of moving good workers from agency to contracted. And have lots of dead weight core workers who cost the company. Waste of 4 and half years or progressing and applying for internal jobs within and working into SVO and off the track to be leading a operation based at another site to then be sacked off with every other manpower when i should have been given a contract to safe guard me in that job position. Company leads you on from day one saying work hard you'll get a contract if you do, you dont have to do five years.

Working under pressure to hit targets.
Place is not bad place to work once you get use to it.

Local Management treat you like 4 years olds.

Money is good but they make you work for it non stop. Target goal post always moving
Pros
Very good Wages
Cons
Non stop from start to finish

You are expected to work contract less for 5 years before eligible for a contract. They can lay you off for as long as they want no job security what so ever. Treated like 2nd class by contracted workers managers have no interest in you unless your on a contract.
Pros
Good hourly rate
Cons
Zero job security

Enjoyed working there but unions always working against management not always for the right reasons. Car industry too volatile and can collapse at amazingly short notice.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Lot of hours and constant issues. Meetings can be very unpleasant.

poor management, only worried about bonuses, cars are put before humans and they constantly threaten you with your job to make you do things or say its a reasonable request meaning if u dont do it they go down the diciplinary route

As an intern I was mentored by two individuals which taught me a lot. They were very supportive and helpful which made it a stress free environment. I learnt how to program.

A typical day at JLR is very boring and repetitive as to be expected with a production plant, sometimes a struggle to keep up if you have a problem with a vehicle.
The management in my opinion have no people skills at all and do not posses any manners, their leader ship just doesn't show. I learned very quickly that no one cares about the quality of vehicle they are trying to produce, they just want the numbers out the door and ship a poor unreliable car onto the customer.

The hardest part of the job is coping with the boredom and of course the shift patterns.
Pros
money
Cons
shifts, if you believe in doing a good job right its deffinately not for you

Pros
pay rates
Cons

Its a good company when everything is going good, when it’s bad which is more often, it really puts you in a stressful mood and make you feel down, definitely not worth the money, starting to look for something outside the trade

No job security. We were promised a contract after 5 years and made redundant after 2 years. People I know have completed the 5 year protocol and been told they will not be getting a contract and that they didn't even say they would give a contract after 5 years. Managers can be real bullies and try to get rid of workers. They call manpower down if you stop the track and don't want to listen to any problem you have on the line. They don't care that your job is over 100 percent loaded and don't follow correct protocols. This is the reason people have accidents because there's too much pressure from managers and the company only cares about quantity not quality.

Avantages:
- Equilibre vie privée / vie professionnelle (semaines de maxi 40h, heures supplémentaires très rares)

- Salaires avantageux


Inconvénients:

- Qualité des projets est souvent ignorée au profit du respect des deadlines.

- Gros turnover des effectifs

- Lien très fort entre JLR et Tata, avec beaucoup de projets offshores (Inde) qui impactent l'efficacité et la qualité des projets.

Nice colleagues and management to work along with very effective work culture. Good environment to learn and develop if engineer is proactive. Improvements in process adherence and planning can drive the company to reach helm as it can improve the product quality drastically.
