Is the automotive industry a stressful environment to work?
Roles within motor vehicle businesses tend to require constant effort and can be highly demanding for their employees as you are consistently dealing with complex data throughout the day. However, you will receive full training on how to prioritise tasks and strategies to minimise stress levels. Employers will also be aware that you are a trainee and will not throw you in at the deep end.
