First let me say that what I'm posting here is only my opinion as somebody who as never worked for Sam Smiths, I'm just a customer who likes travelling and visiting their pubs. My comments below are not aimed at anybody in particular, so hear I go again.
This forum as it good points and maybe there far outweigh the bad points. But some managers must think that this forum is making them live in a goldfish bowl. Every mistake they make can end up on here with "no right to reply*" for all to see. The trouble is, we the people who use this forum day in day out do not know how true these posts are.
A few days ago Antthe2 asked if it was true that this forum as 1300+ members, well antthe2 yes it is but I would think quite a few of the 1300+ members are just one post wonders. They come on here slagging off some manager or other maybe stay for a few posts then never heard of again.
I know quite a few managers dislike this forum as it is a sounding board for anybody who what's to do any s***stirring for them or the pub that they run.
In my working life I would not have liked every mistake I made, to end up on the internet, I would have been sacked weekly. I just wonder how perfect some of these posters are who call hell out of Sam Smiths managers.
* we all know the Sam Smiths manager are told by the brewery that they are not allowed to use this forum.*
Like I stated before, this is just my opinion as a customer and a user of this forum.
