Everyone here at Simply Sliding wardrobes would like to thank the young man from Mascalls School for his efforts during his work experience week with us.
Alfie showed an excellent attitude to his placement and although sliding wardrobes may not be every young mans most inspiring topic, he was able to see the efforts that are put in day to day in achieving an end product – a customer fully delighted with their fitted sliding door wardrobe.
Alfie was interested in Simply Sliding Wardrobes as a whole and, as he is taking Business Studies at GCSE, it was a good practical exercise in finding out the importance of all aspects of a customer facing business. From taking an initial phonecall or email to completing an installation and receiving payment Alfie was able to appreciate nothing is taken for granted and a good deal of thought is put in to every step so that our customers know exactly what to expect.
Accompanying an experienced sliding wardrobe designer to appointments he was polite and smart, carefully watching as the process of measuring, designing and generating a solution for our customers takes shape. Alfie certainly took on board the necessity for punctuality, presentation, consideration and communication and how they are so important when visiting a customer.
During the week Alfie learnt how to cut glass, not something you get to do at school, which he really enjoyed. He also got to take some part in making some sliding doors and other factory duties in which he showed he showed good initiative and application. Again Alfie was able to see that quality and accuracy matter at every step in the creation of a sliding wardrobe.
We congratulate Alfie on his flexibilty, attitude and application during the past week and hope that he enjoyed the experience of working at Simply Sliding Wardrobes and we wish him all the best for the future.
