April 14, 2006
Today at work I noticed that the results of this year's Viewpoint survey (basically a 'What do you think of Tesco' survey for their employees), and noticed amongst the list of 'What's Good':
68.7% Feel like they are respected at work.
The percentage may not be exactly right, but it was around that area. But anyway, to me that doesn't seem that good. To me, that says that over 3 in 10 people don't feel respected in the store, which basically means that 3 in 10 are made to feel either feel like they are bullied, under appreciated or unimportant in the company. Which surely isn't good.
And trust me, that has happened to me in my time, although thankfully the 2 (by far the) worst culprites for it (out of not very many, to be fair – no names named) left last year.
I can't believe the 5 and a bit weeks of Easter are nearly up, and it's back to Uni on Tuesday. Just done a 9–6 at Tesco today, which for some reason absolutely flew by, probably because the store was quite busy and I spent most of the day slicing stuff. Terribly exciting I know. Plus today I didn't have any irritating customers for a change (although someone else did!). On Tuesday a guy threw a big strop at me cos I threw a little strop due to him being flipping arrogant and awkward (you know, those type of guys that deliberately try and act big and cocky in front of their wives). However, that is about the only time I have lost patience with a customer in that way! My whole Tesco motivation seems to be rapidly slipping away, although I've only got one more shift on Monday (time and a half, wahey!!) then I'm done until Summer, by which time I may have regained some motivation!
Going out for a birthday meal tomorrow night in Bolton with some of my school friends, which should be fun. My birthday's not until Wednesday (make a note in your diaries….), but it's such a pain to start back on my birthday, although it does mean my I get my student loan paid on that day….
Oh, and Happy Easter to everyone too!
