    I have my manual assessment for Wolverhampton EMC tomorrow and I'm really nervous. I've never done anything like this before as I'm used to office based work. Is it just a case of following instructions or are you expected to have some hands on experience prior?

    Thanks!

    Not done the wolverhampton assessment persoanlly just the Solihull one but for Solihull you get a demonstration to watch of what they want you to do and then given a step by step guide. Make sure you follow to the letter.

    My manual assessment email says it will take around 1 hour 30. I also read here that you can't have any metal on your clothes, but the eyelets on my safety boots is metal... Should I wear my trainers instead?

    Thanks in advance!

    FA = Final assembly 1+2.

    Last bits of car are added. Mainly track based ie car moves along conveyor to you. Can't just go toilet when you want etc. These 2 factories probably have the highest percentage of awful jobs.

    BIW (body in white)= Bodyshop ( 3 seperate ones in total) Very start of car. Just looks a metal car skeleton. Lot of walking in and out of work area, loading robots with light metal parts.

    Paintshop - Where they go after bodyshop and cladding to be painted of course.Fairly easy work but very hot.


    Where you ended up?

    Also very very slim chance you may end up in Plant Quality or Plant launch and if so you've hit the jackpot.
