I am a professional in retail purchasing, procurement and supply chain management.
I had enough one day and wanted a break, after 10 years with one organisation.
I took 2 months exploring central Europe on my push-bike. I returned to Australia determined to find a job I love.
I am now an SA at the Airside duty free store at Melbourne airport. I get to meet interesting people from all walks of life, and talk about something I love all day.
On the other hand I see a few of my colleagues in action, and sometimes cringe at their service, or attitude.
So, I do see both sides, but what I find most annoying is when I am ignored or told where to go.
I know some of us are not worth your time, but give it a go, we may just hit it off and find a great sharing of knowledge. Not to mention samples, and discounts.
Just don’t be too quick to judge, or tar us all with the same brush, please.
