nelly, don't tell me you are givin up, i think its in batches. where is your faith? what course did u study?
anyway, was called ystday n asked for my course of study-which is food science n tech
d lady den told me to choose from 2 options from marketing or procurement department
i grudgingly chose procurement because i dint want marketin n was really annoyed because i wanted neither of d two, i would have preferred production or quality department
n to make matters worse i just got a mail from them to come 4 assessment on 8th october for supply role
im not complainin but amm worrid n confused

|Re: Guinness Nigeria! by dadp007(m): 1:30pm On Sep 19, 2008|
Congrats Bee cos u are been offered two of the best jobs u can get in a production company
I work in a similar industry in production and am not finding the experience funny, i keep praying so that i could be in marketing, procurement or audit
Marketing is also good cos u dont sell beer/drinks directly,but u work on all these TV shows, promotion etc and its fun
Therefore stop being worried and thank God for that, production is not an interesting area to work in this type of industry
|Re: Guinness Nigeria! by beee: 3:12pm On Sep 19, 2008|
tayo tfc : don't worry,remeber im not being called for a production or food science related course
dadp007: tanks 4 d reply, was tinkin of sendin them a mail to see if i can change d offer, but now, i wont
anyway, wats procurement all about apart from acquisition of tins like raw materials?. i hope u will reply this so that at least i will know what its all about

hi guys Dadp007 has said it all, for those of us that has had the opportunity to work in a brewery production dept, men its hell , for real guys, supply chain or marketing dept is where to be, supply chain entails sourcing for raw materials , ranging from brewing additives to office equipment and logistics u wont regret going there, excerpt u av a terrible boss. but production run away, cos its work work work and work till u drop dead.

Lots of love.

|Re: Guinness Nigeria! by engineerk: 5:50pm On Sep 22, 2008|
Pls can I know when Guinness started calling people?
|Re: Guinness Nigeria! by dadp007(m): 11:25am On Sep 23, 2008|
Marketing in production company has to do with branding and making sure the brand name registers on peoples mind programmes like gulder ultimate search, star quest, greatness stuff, love ventures by guinness, west african idols by ecobank etc are what people in marketing does, while those in sales sell in bars and have direct contact with the costumers directly
Da beast has explained what procurement does, the good thing about these jobs is that ur experience counts and becomes applicable any where be it production, telecoms,banks etc, but if u re in production then ur experience will only count in guiness,NBplc, consolidated etc
As per the group discussion, u guys will be given a case to discuss it as may be board of directors,it is just to test ur role in a team,how supportive u are to other peoples opinion,etc and how time consciuos u are
|Re: Guinness Nigeria! by desh(m): 11:59am On Sep 23, 2008|
Well, concerning procurement in a manufacturin industry like Guiness,it entails sourcing for local n foreign raw materials(including oil n gas),machineries n office equipments.I once worked wit a Big Coy like Guiness in dat Dept n it was fun (though i majored in Accounting).U get 2 mingle wit Big pple(Big time local suppliers)n register ur name wit foreign suppliers too as d coy''s rep and at d end of the day u could set urself up as a Big time contractor(also suppling ur coy when u leave).Its all abt procuring QUALITY stuffs at a GOOD N REASONABLE Price.
Unlike the sales dept wer PR r bin offered 2 dedicated n loyal customers,in procurement d odawise is d case,
In dos days(1999 wen i was on I.T,i dnt knw abt now),we wer d most envied in d organisation.
I wish u guys best of luck n see u all at d Top
