I chose to do a week of work experience at British Hardwoods because I wanted to experience and interact with an actual business environment and I was extremely thankful that British Hardwoods were able to provide me with such an experience. British Hardwoods let me work on both the shop floor and in their office, which enabled me to see how the business functioned and the essential skills needed to operate in a business environment.
During my time on the shop floor I was able see what's needed to produce British Hardwoods' high quality timber products such as their skirting and flooring boards. I was even able to use the different sorts of machinery on the shop floor available to the businesses' skilled machinists to produce various different kinds of products.
After three days working on the shop floor, I was given the chance to gain experience working in their office. There I was able to gain a firmer grasp as to how the company operated on a daily basis. In the office I could see colleagues' devotion to customers and the use of blogs, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube to advertise products.
Overall, I've thoroughly enjoyed my time at British Hardwoods, mainly due to the many things I been able to experience. The skills I've gained during my time at British Hardwoods will hopefully prove helpful in years to come and the great business environment and hard working mentality of everyone who is a part of British Hardwoods. Thanks to this I believe this has been an experience I will no doubt never forget my time working at British Hardwoods.
