What is Looked After Child Limited

From the UK. this website shares Life Story Work, Blog Posts About Mental Health and Life Events Our Main Author is Li Jean-Luc Harris who founded the site as a brand. which spun of from his original blog where he used to write and publish his life stories.

Working as a StockTaker For Retail & Asset Solutions RAS (Formerly Known As OCS) | Life Stories 006

By |November 18, 2018|Employment Story, Life Story, story|

So whats a shift like with Retail Asset Solutions? It depends. management is where it's a letdown and the inconsistency of shifts. for example one day I could start a shift at 4 am finish at 12 pm and be on another shift that same day for 8 pm. and this was a common occurrence. breaks were under the discretion of the team leader and shifts could go over 12 hours on a frequent base. Whats Progression Like  For Retail Asset Solutions? Very small chance of progression. I had seen counters of over 15 years experience never being given an opportunity as they were too good of a counter... also if you don't drive or can't attend shifts on your own forget about it... is Ocs A Job Or a career (Find out the difference Click Jobs Vs Career) if you want to make a career out of OCS don't be a good counter get a drivers licence and friendly with the managers but for most people who get stuck as a stocktaker sadly stay there.
