Placement student in the combustion Performance emissions Department- Cummins, Daventry
very much, learned a lot and enjoyed it even when I made mistakes, which is the best learning opportunity
my team and my manager were very welcoming and patient with me when I arrived, and felt like I already knew then and didn't need much time to getting introduced to each other at work
the consecutive training modules that Cummins provide and pay for are extremely helpful. both my manager and my mentor had devised a plan to train me and help me through what I don't understands
differs from time to time, which is exactly what you need, you need to be saturated with work at times and relaxed at other times
responsibility to a certain extent, always under the supervision of a manager or a senior
definitely skills for life, skills in software programmes, knowledge in engine combustion performance, team work skills, presentation skills, business skills
typical office atmosphere , but warm enough for employees to have good working relationship with each other.
that is the best part, all your schedule is very organised, and you always know what you have to do , or you always have someone to ask
quite a lot of resources were spent on training placement students in Cummins, so far I have had 5 training courses, 4 of them were in business skills training and 1 course in engine performance.
unsure yet as cummins jobs are very competitive
yes very much, we became very good friends and spend the weekends relaxing from the hard work of the placement
Daventry for me wasn't as cheap as I hoped it would be, but for the pay you get from your placement its perfectly affordable
Daventry is a small town which I think could use some renovation and needs a train station , there are buses but the night life is quite, if there is any!
Cummis have a collaboration with stem ambassadors and schools where they send employees to represent the company at school career fairs and university recruitment fairs, and these activities were plentiful , even if you missed one, there is always a second one!
