Crown UK

Hi Chap's,

Was wondering if anyone had any info on working for Crown? What are the trucks like? Is there much electronics on them? What is the diagnostic software like? Do you get many courses at Basingstoke?

Any bonus schemes in place?

Many Thanks.

Training is all done through Warrington.
Quite a focused initial training package and buddy system from what I hear.

Also a big recruitment drive in the Midlands at the moment due to growth

Thanks BurtKwok. Could you tell me the typical training structure for new starters? Any boot camps like Toyota?

I start with Crown in May and just wondering what to expect.

Many Thanks.

Do they sell many engine trucks? Heard they almost entirely electric now?

Trucks are very good, lot of electronics. Most use access 1,2,3 across the range. Diagnostics are all on board or Curtis handset. Decent company to work for.

Trucks are well built, electronics are not that complicated. Most training is at Warrington no bonus schemes
