Really lovely place to work. Modern and up to date. plenty of social activities, meetings and lovely people. Staff are really friendly. I was only a temporary contractor but was treated like all the permanent staff.The job was full on, time passed quickly the months I was there.

Hi. Started working for company as apprentice, then progressed as a HGV mechanic.
Apprenticeship programme is very advanced and teaches you from basics to high skilled level of education. It has helped me to become a Mechanic and gain a skilled job for life.


Scania works very organised to a high level of maintenance to keep trucks safe and long lasting. From smallest equipment to the high technical stuff, scania has it all.

Helped out many other mechanics in their daily tasks, I done this by gathering tools for them if they were busy or cleaning up for them. Sometimes i would be taught how to repair a certain part of a lorry.
Pros
Long lunches
Cons
Sometimes it was boring

Poor management, no room for progression, and if you're a woman don't expect equal pay to your male counterparts. Expect to make tea for visitors and inappropriate comments towards Female staff is commonplace!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Inequality

Loved the job hate the environment. This company will expect you to be pushed to the limits and ask for more. Wages are the lowest of the sector despite being the "premium brand".

As for management it depends if your face fits with them - everything is at managers discretion so you can find yourself extremely out of pocket.


There is no career progression for office staff other than having yet more tasks added to your job description, if your lucky you might happen to be trained by a knowledgeable member of staff but that's as far as your training will go.


Wage rises are limited to usually 2-3% a year so don't be expected to be paid for how much you actually do, not to mention you will take this job home with you so work life balance is impossible!


Not worth mentioning bonuses as they exist but never materialise.


Take this job if you have sadistic tendencies otherwise avoid at all costs!
Pros
The customers
Cons
How long have you got!

I was able to catch a glimpse of what it was like to work for the company and I was able to learn a lot about parts and retail from the members of staff that were training me.

Scania believe in satisfying there customers to the best of there ability and in order to do this the mechanics must take care and pride in there job as not only is it there reputation on the line but the company's as well. As an assistant mechanic there I was tested to my limits a lot to keep up with the standards set and to achieve the tasks given. working at scania gave me basic life skills to take with me,skills such as first aid, basic knowledge of hand tools and team work. the hardest part of the job given to me was learning everything from scratch and trying to remember everything I have learnt for when I was taking on a job on my own. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the work that I had done myself complete to the satisfaction and expectation of both me and my manager.
Pros
looked after by co workers and management
Cons
hours could vary each week

A typical day at work consists of placing stock orders, emergency orders and managing suppliers.
I have learnt many new skills at Scania such as negotiation, better communication, stock control, about logistics and how the business works operationally.

The management at Scania varies depending on what department you are in. Parts is very fast paced therefore deadlines are important.

The co-workers all work together very well and know how to make the day more enjoyable.

The hardest part of the job is delivering bad news to customers if we are unable to fulfil their requirements.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the team behind the operation.
Pros
Fast paced and busy
Cons
Dealing with unhappy customers can be stressful at times
