Old school culture at its worst.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Doncaster, South Yorkshire17 April 2018
Lots of great theories and ideas put forward to customers, none of which are put into practice by Unipart Rail themselves.

Culture of blame and zero support or direction given when needed. Typical old fashioned Public company culture with a huge silo mentality trying to apply itself in a market soon to be more open to competition.

This business is a disaster waiting to happen.

Some staff are great, others are dangerously hopeless yet completely unaware of it.
Pros
Close to the motorway.
Cons
Negative culture and direction.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Doncaster16 April 2017
Good atmosphere most of the time. People work hard on the job and for each other and not just within and for the teams they are in. This isn't recognized enough. Excellent training but a silo effect still endures.Need to get more young people in as a demographic time bomb looms in the product knowledge areas.
Pros
excellent training.
Cons
poor wages comparatively

Audit Support (Former Employee) –  Doncaster, ENG13 March 2015
Unipart Rail are very friendly, they are their to help their staff with personal issues as well as the workplace.

A typical day was to go into email and arrange audits for the company auditor to go into its suppliers. Also get information from the buyers and engineers as to what they would like discussed within the audit.

I learned a new system to use which was SAP where it held all information on the suppliers and how to upload information onto it.

co workers were exceptionally friendly and would always help if got stuck on something.

Making contact with the suppliers as not always happy to have an audit when they are required to.

Sending out the certification when a supplier had passed the audit and knew they would not be required to have another one for 3 years.
Pros
The outside help offered such as health support
Cons
Management always clock watching to see if anyone was late without asking reasons why
