Back At Work

Back at work today after a few days peace and rest – it already feels like 10 years ago. I was booked in for training today. Started fine.

Went into work nice and early so that I could print off documents and change details for a couple of customers. Got that sorted then spent a nice half hour drinking coffee and doing the sudoko in the Metro. Then went to the training department.

Firstly it became apparent that there was more than one training class going on, and a few people were sent to the wrong one. After a few minutes we started. We were there for half hour before we got a call saying the phone lines were extremely busy so training was cancelled. Lovely.

The company offered voluntary redundancy last year and quite a few people accepted. This year they are short staffed. On top of that they are sending out mailings to customers for various things all at the same time. With a bit of a thought process things like this could be prevented. However, I’m sure that the higher echelons of the company have their reasons for doing everything at the same time when there’s not enough staff to cope with it. What those reasons actually are, are beyond my comprehension.

  1. Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planninbg tto start my owwn blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go forr a paid option?
    There aree so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Cheers!

  2. I comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or I have something
    to contribute to the conversation. It is triggered
    by the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed.
    And on this post Back At Work | Call Centre Memoires.
    I was actually moved enough to leave a thought
    🙂 I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it just me or does it look as if like some of these
    comments look like written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I would
    like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list all of all your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  3. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  4. It’s perfect time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy.
    I have learn this submit and if I may I want to counsel you
    some attention-grabbing things or advice. Perhaps you could write next articles referring
    to this article. I wish to learn even more issues approximately it!

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll
    try to get the hang of it!
