    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default Anyone see todays Mirror, page 23.

    This is a photo of page 23. This is absolutely correct, and is the Company I work for and at the same site. To say it is part of Cummins, a worldwide company with sales in excess of 7 BILLION DOLLARS it is a disgrace. We all agree on that.






    If it wasn't tragic, I would laugh.

    Something's better than nothing. We can't accept anything these days. The merest hint that we've had a free bag of old chips at midnight and it's hello jobcenter.

    Apparently, it would mean we were corrupt!!!!

    To be honest, I think it comes down to the old saying,

    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right !


    That was an insult to people by a company who claims to have a business objective of making it a 'great place to work'.
    It probably would have been better not to have done anything at all.

    companies seem to be going out of their way to not give something worthwhile these days - my last firm tried to give a yearly bonus instead if a pay rise, great we thought, but then we didnt think of pension contributions, how to prove you atually earn it year in year out etc. then of course one year we got sweet nothing and was told "well its just a bonus!"

    *lol* Macdonalds and Catering, in the same sentence ?? I work for Aramark, an American company. Like Ste said you would prefer nothing than an poxy offering, it is more like an insult, I guess a curry is better than a sandwich ..

    I have learned my lesson with bonuses as well, they are in my experience unattainable with the goal posts moving all the time ..
