You are in the wrong job I suggest you apply to this council they will only be working a 4 day week. Nice work if you can get it.

Ha I've experienced this. Same salary reduced hours SAME WORKLOAD. After all, with the same service to provide and no extra staff who else will do it?

When you mention local government you usually cite bin men. However they are generally private contractors these days. What they should cite is front line workers like adult social care and child protection who are not the type who down tools at 5pm.

Why? More fool you. Most people I came across in local councils did the bare minimum then less and maximised holiday and sick time.

Not even close to my experience. There were some of that type early doors but they were hangers-on from a much earlier time and were soon persuaded to retire.

Very little difference from the private sector where i also worked save less long hours - although I am told by those still there that this ethos has spread into the public sector but without matching rewards - and nicer management motivated by providing better service on a pittance rather than aggressive bullying styles I frequently encountered in the private world.

I suspect your experience is either isolated or out of date.

Thanks.
Wilko decided to close the store due to the rent apparently being increased when the lease came up for renewal.
Sales have been down since covid too which is a shame as we were one, if not the best store in the south east region during lockdown.

Iíve only ever found wilko staff to be very friendly and helpful so you must have had a good training regime. Iím sure with that on your resumeí you will find another job.
Good luck.

I doubt I will ever work in such a friendly workplace again. We didnít get much training though, just lucky to work with such a good bunch and a good manager (I didnít miss a single Palace home game in my 14 years there which is very good going when you work in retail!).
