I was not expecting the first prize to be mine. In the first two weeks of the contest, the guy from men’s department was leading the list of top sellers. I did not even saw my name in the list. But one morning, when I was scheduled to open, a customer bought a couple of truffles. Then I started to get more sales in a couple of days. By the end of August, the final list of top sellers. I was stunned because my name is first in the list of top sellers. Well, I just did my job. I offer Godiva to gift wrap customers, and even to the children who come look around in Customer Service area. This is another way of improving sales as well as my selling skills, huh. I am liking it. You might ask why there are fragrances and body essentials in the gift. The home and cosmetics department partnered for the contest.
Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract’s sick-leave provisions.
One morning at the bargaining table, the company’s chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, “This man,” he announced, “called in sick yesterday!” There, on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.
A union negotiator broke the silence in the room. “Wow,” he said. “Think of what kind of score he could have had if he had not been sick!”
Job performance review is a way of evaluating employees pertaining to their work assignment and work environment. This also the basis whether an employee deserves a salary raise or incentive. And speaking of incentive, my manager gave me a gratis (summer bag) because I am so good, she said.
