Autism Revolution has been an incredible audiobook. So much so I don’t feel right using the domain name anymore. People need to know about this audiobook. Which is why? I sent a paperback to my autistic Step brother.
Purpose: To establish our own unique Graphic Design brand in Greater Napanee Ontario.
Outcome: We are operating an aggressive Social media campaign to protest issues, fix local and franchise businesses. As well as making the community aware of the problems currently facing us.
#Liberal style #Socialism should be the Social Democratic theory of Economic Expansion. How do we achieve meeting the needs? While also incorporating a model of working to prosperity.
The fridge & food metaphor: I am using this to explain how uncontrolled rent & rising costs to live are interdependent to a work to prosperity Economic model. If the work for the Prosperity model dies, then with it dies the culture of ambitious workers. You just have people concerned with owning the means of production. Nobody will want to support it. Think of it as highly volatile and overly idealistic capitalism.
Ashton Deroy writes: This blog is about one of those nagging questions I have been asking myself since I was 18 and the answer is always different. It has gotten to the point where the answer almost sounds unimportant. “What do I want to do when I am done college?” As I talk about in my post If we don’t change this I will die… I talk about how worried I am about keeping my head above water!
Lets get this straight. I have been in the new graduate role before. What do I know from this? I know that Social Media Marketing is a fictional job. Or it is so rare, that I will not be sending out special resumes for it. I know that web administrator is a service I will struggle to sell in Quinte West & Belleville Ontario because people have no idea what I do & why they need me. I figure this time around I will try to find real jobs, where I use my real appeals?
What do I want to do when I am done college? I want to be with my partner when I am done college. That is what I want to do more than anything else. I love my relationship & my family. There was a time on this blog when I would of wrote down an incredibly ambitious career goal that I would make the center of the dart board of my life.
What have I done in the past? Here is the summary of my background. I have a background in Advertising, Market Research & Telecom. Whatever I do, it has to fit in to my current goals. Which is to take care of my family & better my survival. I love my boyfriend Kaylib Drury. I think he is the first boyfriend who has ever really understood me.
So if the job you are are offering is an Unpredictable schedule with insanely high demands. I have 0 interest. People will have questions about my call center history & short term employment experience. Let me summarize that by saying I am not looking for a lifestyle, I rather enjoy mine. People might pause at my short term experience at Hinduja Global Solutions. To that my reply is, “They had lifestyle expectations that were exchanged with no job security, unpredictable scheduling & limited perks.” It was in no one’s best interest to continue on this road. For one the company thinks their employment offer is adequate and accommodating enough. It is not! For me the job was an insanely high demand on my life that I was exchanging for a pay check.
What am I looking for? I am looking for a job. 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week with some wiggle room. I am available Monday to Saturday and require 2 consecutive days off for quality of life reasons. Not for nothing but telecom has costed me too much of my life. At my age to have had high blood pressure & 2 nervous breakdowns. I am very serious about self-care now!
One thing I learned from my time in Manufacturing? I don’t need to fall in love with a job in order for things to run smoothly. I liked working for Manpower for Hawkins Cheesies. However I just need an employer that understands that you can’t buy my entire life. At Hawkins Cheesies they understood there was time for family & time for work.
I listened to Be Obsessed or Be Average
Whilst I was captured by the charisma of the man. I realized Obsessed culture is more than just unhelpful. It literally summarizes the problems with most modern day employers! Employees burn out, Employers use no compromise strategies and there is no consideration for the long term welfare of the stakeholders. I also agree with the assertion that while yes this book will change you. I believe the result from the book is creating a delusional man ready to risk it all, use blind determinism & use a family second life strategy. I choose average, because the obsessed are sick. Also his success secret? “Own property.” It is not that difficult.
When I am done college I want to make a better life for my family. I don’t want an unpredictable schedule, or to create a goal that drives me off the deep end. My education, experience & drive is valuable to any employer. I also believe I have the self-respect and self-actualization to say to an employer that I like my life. I do not need or want a job that escapes my life & I reject the premise I need to become obsessed!
Ashton Deroy Writes: Hey readers I have the opportunity to seek employment again after leaving HGS for being a bad fit. I am releasing my resume again to allow for me to be indexed and for me to be head hunted. I have always maintained I am a talent in the workplace and I deserve to have employers competing for me. Even though I was at a call center I was a bad fit for. I want to continue on the success of 2018 when I was working at 10 Fitness and continue to build my employment success.
If you can think of employment I am a good fit for. You are welcome to grab my resume link above and forward it to employers seeking talent. If you have any questions, please contact me at 647-850-6802 or email me below. Again I consent for viewing parties to send my resume to potential employers.
Ashton Deroy writes: Hey guys, so the last review I wrote on Google was for HGS where I was employed from May 6th 2019 – June 17th 2019. Unlike the review which focused on problems with the employer & company that outsources customer care. This article is going to focus on the issues with Fido as a company. This article will not reveal confidential client information, aim to hurt operations of the telecom company or be used to make HGS seem like an unappealing vendor to other organizations.
To start Fido is a company with a lot of issues. This is a company Trust Pilot rates as a 1-star bad company. As an ex-employee of an outsourcer, my remark is, “No kidding.” The company has been poorly handling customer communications, it blatantly disregards ethics in both call center operations and at sales vendors & lastly the automation practices of the company come off as inconsiderate cash grabs.
First off let us talk about Fido poorly handling customer communications. Say you are with Fido & you happen to be a senior. You have become used to receiving and paying a paper bill. Now you just stop receiving a bill. You don’t know how much you owe, you don’t really understand what happened & now all the sudden you are being made to register Fido.ca to view your bill. The Fido.ca point will be touched on later in this article as well because it is apart of their automation problem. This practice is nothing more than negligence and as a customer service rep, I think Fido shares the blame with certain delinquent customers for using poor business communications practices and being sneaky in their executions.
Secondly, Fido is blatantly disregarding ethics. What is the overage rate for Fido Pulse plans? $10 for 100mb. National Post goes as far as to claim 47% of Canadians go over their data cap. Cellphone bills are also generally criticized as being 24%- 27% cheaper in the United States. Want to know the real kicker? Fido has no ethical way to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt to a reasonable person that you used the data we claimed on a bill. It is the truth because in order to prove your data overages we would need permission to see what applications, browser pages &, etc use what data. That means we would need to totally surveil your phone. Data usage is an inexact science and it needs to be thrown out of use by cellphone companies! Fido, in particular, deserves the blame in this case for continuing to use outdated practices after the introduction of Shock free Data by Koodo & Unlimited Data by Bell Mobility and Rogers Communications.
Lastly, let us talk about harmful and disgusting automation practices. What is wrong with this company? Now just for taking a bill payment over the phone customers have to pay a $10 account handling fee. It is disgusting! Why does Fido do this? So they can encourage customers to make payments on Fido.ca or the interactive voice system. Therefore not requiring the interaction of any kind to accept payment. Here is the gross part. I speculate they want this practice to work because Fido wants to eliminate customer checks and balances which lead to conversations like usage disputes. It is my feeling Fido is acting in such a way to punish customers for not simply laying down and agreeing to pay over inflated bills.
I want to conclude by also stating there is plenty more wrong with Fido. They still continue to practice high-pressure sales tactics by enforcing agent stats such as MRC (Monthly recurring costs.) They also force agents to make sales offers with their Telli system and make customers wait hellish amounts of time to speak with supervisors for consistent billing issues. There was also an incident where I worked for Fido where a man scammed his mother by having his device balance placed on her account. The sales representative also participated in this. Never the less to conclude Fido was terrible to work for & it is terrible to be a customer of. They poorly communicate with their customers, they disregard ethics & they are automating payment practices to selfishly eliminate cost disputes and fair billing practices. If you ask me I hope this company goes out of business before 2030.
