    I worked at Olleco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging but rewarding environment, great CEO and directors with vision for future and dedicated and highly knowledgeable engineering team who will surely cement long term investment and jobs for the foreseeable future for liverpool site.
    Brilliant staff, like a family all hard working with potential to be a top tier leader in oil and gas industry, second to non engineering dept with investment ongoing to future proof liverpool site. Not yet finished article but but with hard work and dedication from CEO to shop floor staff definitely a sure winner

    Cons

    Basic pension scheme, could be better employee benefits

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but just get that pension side sorted out and it will attract and keep the right people with right work ethic and attitude to take company to the top of places to work for in northwest england

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Olleco in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had numerous phone calls for an interview should of known about the company's management from this really very annoying, just send an email confirmation people have jobs and its very awkward answering the phone about a job whilst in work, two interviewees asking questions from bits of paper printed from the internet?
    The manager couldn't be bothered to come and meet me,?
