Who To Work For ?
Every week we get a wine delivery from Majestic Wines, and almost every week the wine is delivered by a different driver. Each week we also receive a delivery from Black Sheep Brewery, the brewery seem to have only two different delivery teams. There may be issues of company size at play here, but Majestic's constantly changing staff rota doesn't hold the promise of staff who are contented with their lot.
I shop at Tesco three or four times a week, something else that will son change when I'm not shopping for a small business any more, often enough so that I know most of the checkout staff to talk to. Many of the people working in store in Tesco Ilkley have worked there for years, I see the same people stocking the shelves, staffing the fresh counters and working the tills year after year. It might be argued then that people find Tesco to be a decent employer.
I am looking for a move away from catering. I have been thinking about what I would like to do, one of the very best parts of my job has been working with my young staff, always bright and cheerful, happy and entertaining. With that in mind I'm having a look around in the education sector for customer relations types jobs. I have also been looking at various charities, not perhaps at the front line of fundraising, but again in customer relations/care.
If any of my select readership have any leads for me, answers on a postcard to the usual address....
