It has been heard on numerous occasions, that allegedly, Mr H Smith is not a great fan of this website - especially because he would appear to want to keep everything very private and hidden from both staff, and customers. The onset of this started a number of years ago, when all external 'Samuel Smiths' livery was removed from all pubs and transport.
This website allows the opportunity to communicate anonymously, with the only exception being, if someone chooses to reveal their own identity.
As stated by Ian, I would strongly suggest that people uphold disguising of their identities, especially if they are currently employed by the brewery (as does Mr Smith with his external pub/company identities) to safeguard against any persecution.
I might add, that we have it on very good authority that Mr Smith does examine the content of this site - or have someone do it on his behalf - and occasionally it may prove useful for him, in his probably overstretched roll as 'area' manager (on top of other duties, like MD), to have an independent 'ear to the ground', and get a 'heads up' on any potential commercial weaknesses.
We all of course provide this service to Mr Smith, completely free of charge. And of course we also now re-advertise his current vacancies when possible - just part of our friendly service!
