I had a fantastic year at Knorr-Bremse. For one, my EHS placement was highly rewarding as I was able to contribute to many different areas of the business. I was also lucky enough to regularly shadow and learn from the UK EHSQ Director, which was highly beneficial in enhancing my skillset for future employment. Finally, I can only admire the social work ethic at Knorr-Bremse - Every day was a challenge workwise but I was always laughing, and I can only thank the wonderful colleagues and friends I made here for allowing me to be myself and guiding me during difficult work-periods.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement at KB! I was able to experience a large number of different HR related tasks and was given large amounts of responsibility when completing these tasks. Everybody in the company was extremely welcoming and accepting of the placement students. Overall I would recommended KB to anyone wanting a placement
For many of us a placement is the first 38 hour a week type of job and so it gives you such a good opportunity to immerse yourself in a job role that you find interesting. The experience gained has been second to none and the skills and confidence it gives you will definitely set you up for your future career!
Overall, I really enjoyed my placement. To start with it was difficult getting into the new routine but once I got into the flow of working life it was good - it depends on your course but for me I have much more free time on weekends and evenings compared to at uni. Knorr-Bremse is a really friendly company with great people and the company offers many perks to employees.
I enjoyed the placement very much. There was a clear structure, from day one. I have received a thorough induction and every day I felt like I was a part of the company. I was also given a lot of responsibly and had been a part of many projects some individual and some group ones.
Really enjoyed my years placement at Knorr-Bremse. I was originally on a three-week placement however when I asked if I could stay on for a year, they were very accommodating and accepted. I learned a lot during my time in the Customer Services department and was given my own process improvement project to manage. I attended and organised meetings, interacted and collaborated with members of all departments and gave presentations and updates to members of upper management. Towards the end of the placement, a position opened up in the department I was in and I applied and got the job! I now work here full time and still really enjoy working here. Great place if you want to learn a lot and get loads of experience.
I enjoyed my placement year at Knorr-bremse. It was a great introduction to a professional engineering job and all the staff were very welcoming and ready to help you with whatever problem you have. The company also made a great effort to make sure all the placement students settled in very well, holding various workshops were you learn how to behave in an office and get to meet the other placement students in different departments. There were 20 placement students here during my year which made settling in and making friends very easy.
I fairly enjoy my work placement. The working environment is very good, Knorr-Bremse has the appropriate professional manner that a student can learn from. Managers and colleagues are supportive and have expertise in various aspects. However, since I have been living in a bigger city, the location of the company would be personally considered as a drawback.
I enjoyed it very much. It was great for making new friends and having new experiences in situations and places that I'd never been in before. It will really help with my final year at university because even though it's not directly related to my degree, I think about things differently now and take a different and better approach.
