    Pros

    With a committed working attitude comes exposure to Inchcape management training schemes and opportunity to progress to a role which suites you. OEM training is also mandatory in some roles, additional OEM training modules/courses are available through application. Overall attentive & well structured management, employee care & retention a high priority.

    Cons

    Some lack in planning with my (newly implemented) job role. However, good reaction to problem area from management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep high levels of exposure and training with those employees who show the commitment to progress and succeed.

    Advice to Management

I myself was diagnosed by my GP with chronic depression and after suspending me because of my medication and taking away my chance to qualify for master tech which in HRs words was a bad investment made life so uncomfortable I left .

    Director have no idea what management are doing Work there for over ten years then to be told your not needed no more Replacement is a bully and the company are aware of this even hr department was told but done nothing Has done me a favour as I now work for a company that looks after there staff You see the word bullying on here alot

    Advice to Management

    You train staff for years then make them redundant to save money That why your business are losing money It's a shame the share holder's don't take notice Don't waste the years I did You will be put on scrap list like I was and many more It's quite obvious all the recent good reviews have been done by higher management to try and raise scoring
