Hello, I just wanted to add a post to say that after 18 1/2 years I am now leaving SKS .

It's been a great place to work and I will miss it loads .

 

Little story to get me back to me 😃

When I 1st started at SKS or I should say before , my real name is Tony ...

Sadly for myself when I started at my new job the MD was called Tony

Also there was a rep on the road called Tony ..

So I agreed to have my second name of John .

Strange to me but not really my family

My Dad was called Doug , but all the family called him John

My Granddad was I think actually called John ..

So now third one in the family being called John again .

This got a little confusing when my wife also started to work for SKS for a few good years there .

I was John during work time and Tony at home ..

Now after all these years I answer to both so easily .. Lol

 

So back to Tony .. Technical Tony 😝 I like the sound off that more 😃

 

I am sure I will post on here in the future but .. Think I will reopen a new user as Tony

 

See you all soon 🍺🍻

 

And again I will miss working for SKS , it's been a good 18 plus years and I wish them well

Finally! Just kidding, good luck John/Tony/Dave.

 

Hopefully I can be just as helpful in your absence.

Is this related to the recent 'security breaches' ?? SKS have become a bit too trusting with customers ordering stuff on an account number and allowing shop collection - meaning all you need is an easily obtainable account number from any old delivery note etc

 

How did they let someone pick up a machine over the counter who arrived in a taxi and had no proof of order, and drove off in Taxi with key machine???

 

The SKS rep rang me asking me to create an account password..... errrm how do I know you are an SKS employee I asked.... you can trust me, you've never met me but I need you to make a verbal password for your account....I said how do I know you are a genuine SKS employee....he just admitted it's crazy and said we want to photo all collections in the shop from now on..... that's fine I said - but we only buy blanks from you so it's not a serious threat.. £50 max.

A month later they delivered another key machine to Dunstable lock & key, and they knew nothing about it....never ordered it, didn't need it. But the person who ordered it asked for a different delivery address. SKS refused to deliver to any address than the account details. At least that one was saved.

 

Maybe you where caught up in this sandbox?

 

Regards

 

Mat
