I had a very enjoyable time working at Lubrizol, everyone was very friendly and more than happy to help out when needed. It was a great environment to work in and I had many opportunities to develop my personal qualities, and experience what a work place is really like. The skills that I have learnt during my placement are ones which I will hopefully be able to use in future careers and apply to new situations.
I have had the best year at Lubrizol and it has surpassed my expectations! Everyone has been so friendly and has made me feel part of the team like any regular employee. The company has great values and the site in Hazelwood is situated in the countryside, which is really beautiful! There are around 20 placement students so you also have a great social life. The canteen is subsidised and the food is amazing, we also have quite a few free buffet lunches! I have learnt so many skills and gained confidence in my own abilities due to this placement.
Lubrizol was a great place to work. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful throughout my time on placement. The relaxed but focused working environment aided this and I feel that this contributed to myself feeling comfortable through the year. The tasks in work and activities outside of work also made it a very enjoyable year on placement.
Being at Lubrizol was very enjoyable and also incredibly valuable. One of the things that makes it such a good company to work for is to do with the fact that there are so many students; this year there were 20 students so you manage to easily maintain a social life while on your year away from University.
The whole experience was very enjoyable. The working environment was very good. The way everything was handled throughout made the whole placement feel like it was teaching me something new without too much pressure being applied. The research itself was all very interesting and allowed me to apply my theoretical knowledge to actual experiments, helping me get a feel for the things I had learnt at university. The mixture of lab work to office work was also very good in that it always kept you occupied and interested.
The placement exceeded expectations. It allowed me to learn and perform a very wide variety of experiments. All placement students are treated like full time members of staff. Lubrizol as a company treats it staff exceedingly well with bonuses and rewards.
I really enjoyed the placement and working for the company. Lubrizol is a very good company to work for and the skills I have learnt during my placement are skills that I will use for the rest of my working life. Everyone on site is really friendly and there were loads of other placement students as well so I've definitely made some friends for life!
I have really enjoyed my placement year at Lubrizol. It's a friendly atmosphere to work and has a large student population. The confidence I have gained from working in the lab will help me greatly in my final year of university, and if I chose to persue a chemistry career,
I didn't know what to expect from my placement but I really enjoyed my time at Lubrizol and chose to extend my contract for another 2 months. As a student we had the same benefits as the other members of staff and when comparing my time on placement to students from my university at different companies, i got the better deal.
I was given full responsibility and encouraged to work independently on tasks. Everybody I worked with, in the purchasing department and around site were really supportive and friendly - it's a great place to work, as it has such a positive environment.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my year work placement. The job has been interesting and challenging with opportunities to get involved in a variety of different projects. Everyone that I've met or have worked with have been really friendly and willing to help which has made going to work something to look forward to.
