Work was engaging and kept me busy with a team who is happy to help. The management is done well and it was enjoyable being able to get work done from start to finish and they is plenty of breaks. It was hard to keep up with the hours and my personal travel however.
I was pleased to start work there in 1998 . I enjoyed the work either Soldering , Winding or working in Impregnation for 7 yrs . But a few yrs TT Electronics Brought out the previous share holders . Since then it has been a shocking place to work . The upper management have not got a clue . But As long as they see money coming in . Sod everything else . They say they care about the staff . But they couldn't care less as long as they get a % of the jobs laid out the door . My attendance over the last year wasn't good as working there gets you down so much mentally . If you want to Backstab people . Then TT is the place for you . The one plus is like many a person at the moment who are thinking the same as me but I left . So Happy
Good Work . You Get To Go Home .
Managment . Very Little Space To Work . Training is none existent.
70's manufacturing company alive and kicking in 2018
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 27 September 2018
Having worked in various Departments here for over 10 years, I can confirm that the place hasn't and will never change. Old School attitudes are still prevalent even though the upper management has changed umpteen times and the company has changed from sole ownership (Roxspur Measurement & Control Ltd) to a cooperation. The new owners have talked a good talk since taking over but nearly 3 years down the line and very little has changed (other than around a 40% continual staff turnover). TT Electronics, in my opinion, have a Tickbox mentality to everything from Health & Safety, through quality control to staff moral. It really is a shame as I used to enjoy my work and have a real loyalty to the company but this has been eroded over the years with good work going unnoticed and stagnation of the company.
Secure, generally decent folk, childcare vouchers
No progression available, top heavy workforce, whole company run by Sales Department, Poor upper management
assembler (Former Employee) – Barnstaple, Devon – 25 July 2018
Worked in cell 4, management are useless, no people skills, even picked on employees while there, it wonders how people like that evan have a job. Had training at first and evan the guys that was supposed to train you didn't have a idea what they was doing.
Operator (Former Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 6 September 2017
I worked for them for a couple of months. The team that i worked with was very nice people apart from some that like to be the boss aldo they are not and like to spread bad info about other people just to put themselves good with the management. The management is one of the worst I saw ever, asking to achieve the impossible with antique equipment and understaffed team. Also you will not have eny review of your work and when they to not like something of what you do they just sack you.
Production Operative (Former Employee) – Bedlington, Northumberland – 2 June 2017
I was unfortunate enough to waste years of my life working at the Bedlington site of this company. They pretend that they want to do things correctly but only do it when an audit is due. Management are a ridiculous bunch of losers. They make up rules that other companies wouldn't even contemplate. If you work here you'll get nowhere because there's no incentive to better yourself and will just chug along and end up thinking what have I done with my life. STAY AWAY. PLEASE.
I worked in the Rogerstone IMS location. Its near my home, with in 20 minutes. I liked the manufacturing hours 8:00 - 4:30, 30 mins lunch Half day Friday worked well for me.
The pay was ok, market rate the employees where excellent, focused and eager to do a good job when given clear direction. The management however where appalling. Everyone could see the bad decision making which resulted in a loss of customers and mass redundancies. The management team felt that they were autonomous but in reality they where governed from Global HQ which resulted in power struggles and delayed decision making.
Personally I am glad to have left. Unfortunately I can not recommend them as an employer.
Good hours, reasonable pay
Bad Management team, indecision, poor career growth

Document Control Engineer (Current Employee) – Rogerstone, WLS – 25 March 2014
I am in charge of reorganising the Customer file structure and ensuring the Build of Materials are separated and distributed correctly, Another part of my Job which I enjoy greatly is implementing a Document management system into the company to cut down on archived documents.
You learn something new everyday here on maintenance at tt electronics as there is so much work to cover which makes the job really interesting. The management is not to bad got its pros and cons maintenance manager is great which makes my life easier. The maintenance team are great always helping each other and sticking up for each other if mistakes are made maintenance manager helps out alot too. The hardest part is when your afternoons as you are on your own and there are a few machines down with big problems then your in for a long night. The most enjoyable thing about the job is that your continuously learning which makes it interesting and makes you a better engineer.
