Look at today’s virtually laughable post http://www.kentonline.co.uk/kentonline/news/2012/april/26/shirkers.aspx
(these views are my OWN, not km or their afiliates - this post will NOT be removed unless the insults of the jobless are retracted with a humble statement - i see this being an impasse)
Carl Cooper. You are a 26 year old man who refuses to grow up? Why do I say this? Because you used social media to slate the so called axis of evil seven who did not turn up on their first day at work. Using social media to slate the unemployed is playground stuff. Was you bullied for wearing glasses at school? Was your satchel taken off your back and unceremoniously thrown around the concrete vile pit of doom or was your sandwiches in your lunchbox with a faded picture of a superhero plundered by bullies?
YOU SIR are a bully. What you are offering in wages is purely laughable. HOW can you justify saying that your lemmings, that’s right lemmings who will be making Carl er Cold Calling to sell whatever you are selling, make 2 to 300 pounds a week? In a double dip recession? - whatever your on can I have some? - please?
This slating of the unemployed was just a vehicle to sell and promote your company. And it was such a crass way of doing it. Filling the twitter feeds with your disdain and that you was going on the half 6 news - more self promotion. Why don’t you hire a flipping Cessna with a huge banner on the end of it saying BUY MY STUFF.
Did you ACTUALLY vet your potential clients or was you just bored sipping your Costa packet coffee whilst these people who are so morally twisted
“stooges” BS their way through the interview? No and you know why don’t you? Because you know absolutely nothing about business and job climate and most importantly PEOPLE.
You live in deal. Deal has a lot of people “between jobs” I think unemployed is a derograty term especially with YOUR “unique” way of looking down at them. After your Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes of shame, can you actually expect someone to work for you with that empty headed attitude? They would be expecting you in a pair of jackboots, SS uniform and a Lugar pistol.
What sites did you go to? Some telemarketing positions through recruitment websites and the Jobcentre website. Well that’s really gonna get you what your looking for isn’t it? What about Reed.co.uk or monster.co.uk. What about agencies.? These people WOULD turn up even if it was the monsoon like it was yesterday. Why did you not try further afield? Forget bums on seats when your modus Operand I is pounds shillings and scrofula.
Oh yeah, the monsoon! Well carl (can I call you carl but as I’m dole scum is it mr cooper or sir or mien fuehrer?) Heresden isn’t exactly the easiest place to get too is it? What about the weather? What is some bimbo with a face of a full blown Jaffa orange has a cheeky little prang whilst fixing her make up with a trowel and a cement mixer. What if the 7 deadly sins who were on their way to prefab heaven get stuck? Then you will be turkey on xmas eve wont you? (insert expletive here)
There are contributing factors to why maybe some did not turn up:
BS their way to get that interview result
They might of ACTUALLY found something better
Car broken down
Trains had a one under, landslide, signal failure, power failure
Be arrested for some misdemeanour
Why get the so called Twitterati to help you? Do I scare you carl? Is it because I am a dolie with what the locals call a BRAIN. Yes a brain. I have actually read the manual that tells me to pull in the clutch get selection and actually ENGAGE IT. Whilst you would probably flood the engine with your pithy bleating like a lost lamb in Dartmoor.
“Lost, alone and afraid the creature tries to enlist the help of lord sugar and dragons den by saying “I’m in business, I’m wounded- no-one showed up” well boo hoo hoo carl - deal with it - its business. Did lord sugar cry if one of his old Amstrad stereos was sent back through poor manufacture? No I don’t think the ice man melteth or Theo when he was formerly chairman of mill wall. Did an extra cleaner make him want to cry like a baby? Er….no (it made me cry being a Charlton supporter to work for them at the turnstiles at the away end in ‘85 - but I am a man and not an island Carl)
So carl according to you and the gospel according to automobile-quite -thick-innit (do you honestly want me to advertise someone who is a =s vacous as you - no!) we are all dole-ies, we don’t want to work. We sit on our computers and BE FAT! Is that it BE FAT! Is that a subtext is it. So what merits did these people get in the first place to land that “dream job” (chokes in derision) What plaudits did they have? Any of these by any chance?
Transport link knowledge
Qualifications (yet you end with “willing to take on people “weather” sorry whether or not with experience” - negates you argument if you want sales people by advertising on telemarketing sites
Knowledge of the job
Achievments in the field
Loyalty to the company - did you ACTUALLY follow up their CV’S ? did you ACTUALLY contact mentors and referees? Did you ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEM? You question the unemployment of people when its your judgement that is MORE than questionable.
Did you get advice about your business? Or like Lauren Goodchild of http://www.myjobguru.co.uk/ actually DID the above? She has had loads of experience in business and has started her own and her attitude is unlike yours, its POSITIVE. Why don’t you used your hard squandered to contact her and talk turkey? And her business is SUCCESSFUL. Why? Because she has empathy, she knows and understands PEOPLE. All you know is to use a Smartphone (its smart cos you are not so are you gonna insult it too?)
(I did an employability course with Lauren and PASSED because I am unemployed and proud to be armed with my 3 a levels and POSITIVE ATTITUDE to finding work Herr Carl)
On the question of office space and the room for your SURFS. HOW can you make a snap decision of hiring more space when this actually could have happened these so called 7 deadly sins of dole-dom so called NOT TURNING UP. Good business sense would have prevailed if you had actually thought it all through instead.
Planned your office space beforehand
Allocate collateral to various areas
Have a positive exit profit target
Logically think about growth but in your case SHRUNK sorry sunk.
Think about what workforce you need
What is your work catchments area
Finding out which places have a better worker-job ratio then just going headlong 5 months after last Christmas
Lastly treating your workers with respect. If they read your frankly pathetic posts on twitter - WHO WOULD WORK FOR YOU?
We are NOT in a something for nothing culture. That is frankly bobbins mate. All the questions below are answered with a small word (even you can say it) no.
Did we ask to be unemployed?
Is it great that we are labelled shirkers?
Do we have kids for the sake of it?
Do we sit on our butts all day eating the gross domestic product of Malawi?
Are we all followers of the church of giro?
Do we like being bored, with no life, no future, suicides, repossessions, family break-up etc?
Well Herr Carl the great financier? Well……….?
Another thing Carl the plastic entrepreneur. Dragons den would not pee on you if you was on fire as you did not do ANY of the above. Especially peter Jones would have a major problem for a start.
Carl, the party you love so much has turned London into an elitist, white and right wing environment were the rich and the privileged get to buy and live where the hell they like whilst those so called freeloaders.com (thanks to the oh so jolly rent capping ceiling) have to move to at least 160 miles away so these “shirkers are in your manor me old china - deal with it. I call it racism, I call it ETHNIC CLEANSING. I call it TREASON. And insulting your own kind is treason. These are your future workers and they may have a reason why they don’t work mr Enoch Powell wanna be.
I am NOT defending those who didn’t turn up (if they actually did - I think you were just capitalising on the recession thing - timing? Oh well timed, well done, spot on (claps slow and sarcastically)
Read my blogs carl - put the abc 123 book down and actually LEARN to read:
These are WHO you should be berating http://blogs.kentonline.co.uk/post/intolerence-injustice-and-insurrection.aspx
These are who you should be employing
(and the guy mentioned in the post is going hungry, learning to drive to work for imbeciles like you)
Companies with your attitude have the same mentality - do you want to train them all as bulldogs?
This is what’s happening LOCALLY
I have wasted 3 hours constructively using surgery to de-construct you. Read those blogs and then come back to me and argue. Just let me finish off my huge pie, case of beer, skin a Quaalude, fart and play skyrim (one of those statements is true which one?)
Goodbye Carl im now off to go somewhere and BE FAT just for you.
And that is free and non-taxable - now you have something for an argument about NOTHING.
PS 2.7 million people out there to choose from, all have qualities and merits. To call them all lazy is an indictment to their integrity. You have INSULTED 2.7 million people. I hope you are pleased with yourself.
PPS. The DWP used to pay cash incentives to employers who for a few months be a unpaid worker. The national insurance used to be paid for. But now because of job agencies like AVANTA, G4S And Kennedy Scott who have long term unemployment people on their books) , the goal posts have been stolen and not moved. The Governments 18 - 25 policy (sounds like a bawdy package holiday) is putting anybody in vacant positions. It might be some of these people who were sent to Mr Coopers premises from these vendors. It would be better for Mr Cooper to set up as one of these agencies and make some money instead of breaking bread with the big guns on twitter.
