Providing Support to our OEMs, i handled the on highway trucks (Leyland DAF)
I enjoyed it very much, Cummins is the best company that i have ever worked for. They invest in their employees and placement students receive the same treatment.
I have always felt vauled as i have been given responsibility to control my own work and on projects. i have been included and involved in many projects
my manager gives me freedom to manage my own work, and provides me with support when it is needed
i always had things to do and never really had a point where there was nothing for me to do. as the year progressed i got progressively busier
i have been given quite a lot of responsibility with my job, my manager gave me freedom to manage it how i wanted and he provided me with support when needed
i have much more technical knowledge and this will aid me in my future career. i have learnt how to stucture my work and day so that i am clear what i have to do and when i need to do it
very good atmosphere, everyone was always quite busy but had no issue in helping you out if you encountered a problem
my placement was more of an actual job so did not require much organising, my manager gave me freedom to experience other departments if i wanted.
i was taken out on jobs and trusted on large and important projects. we also where supplied with student development modules to develop skills of all sorts
there are many employment opportunities. some of which have the potential of being exciting as you may be exposed to new technologies and products
we had a very good social group in cummins, the placement students worked together on many things
there was some nightlife, dont set your expectations too high
yes depending on where you looked and what your interested in there where planty of things to get involved in
