My first Mahindra experience was long before I joined Mahindra. I was on a road trip to Leh in a Mahindra Scorpio; the beast rode right up to the slippery slope of the Manali-Leh highway while others looked over stationary in their cars. Another instance was when I attended a photography expedition where I saw a picture of the Mahindra Tractor worshipped alongside a deity’s frame. I instantly felt a connect with the brand, and wanted to experience it up-close.
A New Beginning at Mahindra
A campus recruit into the company in 2012, I was a fresh graduate brimming with ideas. I was never asked to slow down or reconsider my ambitious ideas. My manager always motivated me to experiment without holding me back. Even if he thought I would fail, my attempts wouldn’t be dismissed under the ruse of failure. That helped me learn a great deal.
After the initial training, I was moved to the Fatigue Test Lab where I currently work as a Deputy Manager. Customer satisfaction sits at the core of my profile. We make sure that a car travels from point A to point B without facing the slightest snag in the delivery process. We ensure that our customers don’t frown upon their car’s performance. I was excited to be a part of the lab, and after four years of work, I am still in awe as when on my first day.
A Gradual Transition
Mahindra has not only made my work easy but also made my transition to Chennai effortless. Moving to Chennai was not as comfortable as I had expected. But it was only when I stepped foot in MRV did I feel at home. The intercultural environment helped me be at ease. From accommodation to food, the company aided my settling in phase till the last minute.
I cherish my freedom at work. Mahindra has always given me opportunities to flex my wings. My most meaningful learning at Mahindra is to never stop learning.
