First day at Aggreko

Book an Expert

Posted by Martin Hinshelwood | 14 Comments | Me

Well, its my first day at Aggreko, and I am loving their efficiency…I was handed a laptop uplon entering the office, and they had my login ready :)

This is the first company that I have worked for that could get this right…

My first job is researching and deploying Sharepoint, which I will need to come up with a plan for…

Hmm, I think I blogged about that recently…

They already have a wicked farm setup, but with nothing on it. And there are masses of propriatory workflow and applciations to migrate…Thisis not a small job.

    Hey martin,

    Hi Martin,

    Don’t be silly that they handed you a laptop and your login ready upon your arrival.
    That’s understood they have to supply you something to start work with, overall they are paying you.

    Best of luck,

    You would not believe the number of companies I have worked for that it took 2-3 weeks to get a computer and a loggin :)

    I have a 2nd interview at Aggreko on Friday – here in the states – Do you still love the company? It would be over an hour drive for me if I get it and I’m not sure I want to drive that far!!!!

  • Martin Hinshelwood

    Its my second year at Aggreko as an Engineer for CES UK Oil Free Air…. Its a decent company in the UK, we work long and sometimes inconceivable hours
    when most people are asleep we are solving major problems. I kicked and screamed for six months then suddenly relaxed as i learnt the equipment and found problems easier to solve….like everything in life, you gain confidence and persevere….Thats what Aggreko is about….GOODLUCK!

    I worked at the company and we made good profits and they decided to close the location without notice….company sucks……..

  • Steve

    Six years ago they wanted to expand then decided to close stores now they want to expand again. George Walker could not manage a FRUIT STAND…..

  • Secret

    They suck trust me I would know. They treat there people like crap after do everything for the company. Then they just hire someone new and it starts all over again. There is a lot of better company’s to go to work for. If you are smart you will stay away from these idots.
