What are the best and worst things about your company?
Flexible and open: The candidate is given the opportunity to go around the company for the first 6 months and explore different departments, how they work etc. - you will learn a lot about the industry and why they are desperate for new engineers! Each engineer will get a choice in which discipline they want to specialise in, after getting experience of each one (for electronic/electrical engineers, this will either be signalling/telecoms, or electrification and plant). Be careful about organising particular placements as some people are too busy and do not have the time or much work to give you (get advice from other/previous graduates, use the sharepoint for ideas).

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The best thing about the scheme was the flexibility and the best thing about being a shift station manager is the fast paced environment and people management.Graduate scheme - worst is that there are so many options, it can take a while to figure out what you like. Worst of being a shift station manager is the shifts.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Challenging. Variable. Always learning.Everyone is as busy as each other so it is difficult to plan anything at short notice. A reactive industry so often things can crop up at last minute which completely changes your plans for the day.
