In 1 hour I will find out if I have a job or not. :-(
Can’t say who I work for but it’s been in the news lately. Meeting in 1 hour. Maybe wasn’t the best thing to buy a new £1000 bike last week :-/
At least I haven’t got kids like my line manager though.Posted 13 years ago
Yowzers.Posted 13 years ago
Corus?Posted 13 years ago
PS from a statistical point of view I you can be certain of having a job or not but that probably isn;t much consolation.Posted 13 years ago
Good luck robdob.
I’m lookin for a new job having been offed a week or so ago.
Enjoy your new bike anyway.Posted 13 years ago
Sorry I can’t say.Posted 13 years ago
No idea what will happen TBH.
I am not worried much but I just want to get it over with!
I’m normally a consciencous worker but I am now finding it hard to get anything done now!!
good luck mate.Posted 13 years ago
Doubt it will be Corus, i got the news yesterday and i got the impression most units did. Final details of how they will make us redundant haven’t been released, really good for company moral, “your all to be made redundant”!
At least i have a few months to think before i need to worry.Posted 13 years ago
Break a Leg.
(You don’t work for a Labour peer do you?)Posted 13 years ago
Best of luck.Posted 13 years ago
Fingers crossed it all goes well, if the worst does happen at least you’ll have time to ride that new bike 😀Posted 13 years ago
i’m finding out this week too. Tempted to offer myself up for redundancy as i’m stuck in london doing something i don’t want to do thats not going anywhere anyway. Would be a good chance to go and do a phd and then come out more qualified when everythings picked up.Posted 13 years ago
Good LuckPosted 13 years ago
Best of luck mate, I got made redundant last Wednesday but it honestly isn’t as bad as folk are saying. I’ve already had two interviews, have another two lined up and a further six applications have been sent this morning. Just got to get one fairly sharpish and enjoy the two months gardening leave and the lump sum I’m getting next month!Posted 13 years ago
Maybe wasn’t the best thing to buy a new £1000 bike last week :-/Posted 13 years ago
away with yer. if you keep your job you can afford it…if you dont it will get used.
best of luck.
It’s an hour….Posted 13 years ago
How did it go?Posted 13 years ago
Just had a general meeting, waiting for individual meeting about my role. Then I’ll know more. Have to go, I need a wee. 🙂
Been drinking coffee since 6am, nowt to eat and I feel a bit weird now.Posted 13 years ago
hope it works out ok.Posted 13 years ago
My job is safe!
Off to get a KFC. :-)’
Might lose a role in our site, close friends too so that sucks for them. 🙁Posted 13 years ago
Good for you! Did they tell you how they worked out the numbers, or is it not your job that’s being made redundant?Posted 13 years ago
That’s good (but mixed) news then.Posted 13 years ago
That’s good news. BUT…. a KFC to celebrate? Are you mad?Posted 13 years ago
Good stuff robdob! 🙂
I’m in my consultancy period just now but reading between the lines, it looks like i’m gone! Not ideal when the missus works in the same office (and may be a goner) and she is due our first kid in a couple of weeks!
Oh well…plent of time with the baby for me (and hopefully a few cheeky rides too!)!!! Gotta look at the positives!Posted 13 years ago
good to hear posting here and running out for KFC doesn’t count when they do the redundancy calcsPosted 13 years ago
It’s my dinner hour, I started at six am!
And an iPhone is a wonderful thing. 🙂Posted 13 years ago
Nom nom nom (wipes lips) 😀Posted 13 years ago
Excellent news!! Nice one!!
Funny you mention KFC – on the day I got made redundant in December I had decided Iw as going to have a KFC for lunch as I hadn’t had one for probably over a yr. Then I got called into the office and didn’t feel like one after that.Posted 13 years ago
It’s gorgeous, it’s just opened and everything is hot and fresh. I must admit it can be a bit crap when it’s kept warm.
If I had lost my job I would probably had a KFC anyway, might have just gone for a 2 piece variety meal instead of 3.
Still would gave gone large on the fries though 😉Posted 13 years ago
Rob, well done! New bike coming, surely?Posted 13 years ago
He only bought a new one last week!! 😀Posted 13 years ago
New bike? That’s an excellent idea!!!!
Always remember people:
(the ideal amount of bikes to own)=(current number of bikes owned) +1
I fancy a dirt jump type of bike.Posted 13 years ago
Liking thr KFC idea, too.Posted 13 years ago
Rob you described something from KFC as “Fresh”, therefore you are clinically a bit mental and should be sacked anyway IMO…
;o)Posted 13 years ago
KFC chicken is fresh. Only the burgers come in frozen, the rest will be fairly locally produced to the store, and delivered fresh maybe 2-3 times a week. I’d imagine it’s fresher then what you buy in the supermarkets.
(Ex KFC Supervisor, still love the stuff)

My lips are still greasy. MmmmmmmPosted 13 years ago
KFC is ok. It’s at least tastier than McDs. And all fast-food stuff is probably no worser than poncy stuff like M+S; just that there’s loads of hype about fast food, because some people are too fat. KFC, McDs, Bugger King etc get the flak, because they are in the high streets of many poorer areas. M+S is probably just as full of preservatives/additives etc, they just pretend it ain’t.Posted 13 years ago
Actually, don’t read that last post in isolation, it sounds a bit dodgy. 😀Posted 13 years ago
Congratulations on keeping the job but a KFC to celebrate is a bit low key.
At least you can enjoy the bike with a clear conscience now 🙂Posted 13 years ago
I have a very low key job. KFC is an expensive treat, especially the amount I just ate :burp:Posted 13 years ago
