    I have been working at British Gypsum full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Friendly environment
    - Great focus on Health and Safety
    - Rich training program for new starters

    Cons

    - Salaries not in line with the industry
    - Little prospect for career progression within the department (Cross department or inter company mobility required)
    - Very political

    Advice to Management

    Work should be done to revalue technical positions within the company. The lack of career prospects for staff with a technical background is appalling and does not motivate staff to remain in the department and be fulfilled.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at British Gypsum (Bath, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview, with competency questions. They asked background questions, then previous situations in which I solved a problem, asked a competency question on how to improve efficiency of process.
