    Just about to post the same. The fact that a messy workshop put him off is a massive indicator of his attitcude. I immediately thought I'd have taken the job, used some initiative and fixed the workshop up to help increase productivity etc.

    Unless there was serious OH&S issues, you're evidently too fussy. Try B2B, that'll toughen you up and get you thinking. Or even Dominos.

    Well there's a week of earnings right there. I've worked in warehousing and cold storage, and it was always a mess until I set it up the way I liked it to make my job easier in the future. Though my motivation was to make it easier on me personally, other people notice and appreciate it too, so it had that side bonus.

    Yeah what a perfect bludge job cleaning up is . I would have thought it was great .No hard work just picking stuff up & organising things while the others had the hard slog ....I guess we all see things differently

    No the bludge job , I just don't like working in a pig sty
    It's never taken me more than 1/2 a day to clean up a shop & start fresh
    I've just noticed the older guys hate doing it, thinking it's the apprentice's job :rolleyes:
    If everybody gets involved it want take more than 1-2 hours

    Why did you not do a drive by and at least visited him last week to introduce yourself and have him show you around.

    Get some smarts into your head..........

    At least you would see how a small spanner shop is set up properly.

    Yes spanner i'm used to a big workshop but thers no excuse even for a small shop to have tools thrown all over the place and not even enough room on ALL of the work benches to put a cigarette packet.

    Why should I be the one that has to clean up everyone elses mess because they cannot be bothered house keeping at the end of a days work??? :eek:

    Because they pay you to do it? Is it a trick question?

    Because a small shop is a different world & everybody does everything ;)

    I've worked in panelshops where the boss cleans up first thing every morning :eek:
    Why
    To see who would come in & help out or those who would walk in right on the dot to start work
    I'm usually at least 15 minutes to early .

    NOT in his world , his used to "ONLY" doing his job
    Most people hate cleaning up each day & develop an attitude after finishing an apprenticeship ;)
    Usually comes from working in big shops .
    You can't reprogram those types :eek:
