    Default Are you a Jobsworth!!

    Following on from this thread.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=72949

    I was wondering how many people out there would describe them selves as Jobsworth!!

    I would say I am 60-70% of the time.. I work in the Prison system and i like my 'customers' to stick to the simple rules that are set for them.

    I take it personally when I feel one of them has got one over me etc etc and will make sure all the nitty gritty rules are followed :P


    So come on then own up...... whos Jobsworth and who doesnt give a damn lol!

    It depends on who it is I'm dealing with - I am an IT Manager and have to approve any software/new hardware etc and depending on the attitude of the customer, I may simply approve it without question or I may make the user go through the whole business justification process etc. The same goes for it I notice a user using non-standard software - if the user is ok, I can turn a blind eye etc....

    Safety is very important in my job so I will always do my best when it comes to that, however I often don't get round to doing the lesser jobs which a jobsworth would get done. So 50/50

    Some of the time yes. But I'm a Health and Safety Officer too so if I say no you're not going to use FLT A to lift FLT B onto the roof it means no. But most of the time is spent getting tasks done safely, not stopping them.

    A few weeks ago I saw three young lads smoking on our car park on the CCTV. They were standing next to a modified Corsa. I went out and stopped them smoking because it invalidates our insurance and the company behind have stock right next to our fence. But I explained why and then spent 15 minutes talking about what the owner had done to the Corsa. Handshakes all round and they left. If they wanted to take Pics of their car. I'd have helped them do it.

    Outside of work definiatly not although I've tried to intervene on here if someone is about to do something which would end in a a ban.

    option 3.
    if there are silly rules at work, i enforce them if i have to, depends who is asking and who is watching. as long as the job is done right, i don't really care too much.
