Eleven Tips on Getting More Efficiency Out of Women Employees:
There's no longer any question whether transit companies should hire women for jobs formerly held by men.
The draft and manpower shortage has settled that point. The important things now are to select the most
efficient women available and how to use them to the best advantage. Here are eleven helpful tips on the
subject from Western Properties:
1. Pick young married women. They usually have more of a sense of responsibility than their unmarried
sisters, they're less likely to be flirtatious, they need the work or they wouldn't be doing it, they
still have the pep and interest to work hard and to deal with the public efficiently.
2. When you have to use older women, try to get ones who have worked outside the home at some time in
their lives. Older women who have never contacted the public have a hard time adapting themselves and
are inclined to be cantankerous and fussy. It's always well to impress upon older women the importance
of friendliness and courtesy.
3. General experience indicates that "husky" girls - those who are just a little on the heavy side - are
more even tempered and efficient than their underweight sisters.
4. Retain a physician to give each woman you hire a special physical examination - one covering female
conditions. This step not only protects the property against the possibilities of lawsuit, but reveals
whether the employee-to-be has any female weaknesses which would make her mentally or physically unfit
for the job.
5. Stress at the outset the importance of time - the fact that a minute or two lost here and there makes
serious inroads on schedules. Until this point is gotten across, service is likely to be slowed up.
6. Give the female employee a definite day-long schedule of duties so that they'll keep busy without
bothering the management for instructions every few minutes. Numerous properties say that women make
excellent workers when they have their jobs cut out for them, but that they lack initiative in finding
7. Whenever possible, let the inside employee change from one job to another at some time during the day.
Women are inclined to be less nervous and happier with change.
8. Give every girl an adequate number of rest periods during the day. You have to make some allowances
for feminine psychology. A girl has more confidence and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied,
apply fresh lipstick and wash her hands several times a day.
9. Be tactful when issuing instructions or in making criticisms. Women are often sensitive; they can't
shrug off harsh words the way men do. Never ridicule a woman - it breaks her spirit and cuts off her efficiency.
10. Be reasonably considerate about using strong language around women. Even though a girl's husband or
father may swear vociferously, she'll grow to dislike a place of business where she hears too much of this.
11. Get enough size variety in operator's uniforms so that each girl can have a proper fit. This point
can't be stressed too much in keeping women happy.
HOW OLD DID YOU SAY YOU ARE??????
If you're 50/over (not that you have to be)....This is for you!!!!
OK if you are not over 50 then send it to someone who is I'm sure they'll love ya for it :)))
We were born before television, penicillin, polio shots,
frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the PILL.
We were born before radar, credit cards, split atoms laser
beams, and ball-point pens.
Before pantyhose, dishwashers, clothes dryers, electric
blankets, air conditioners, drip-dry clothes, and before man walked
on the moon. We got married first-and then lived together.
How quaint can you be?
In our time, closets were for clothes, not for "coming out
of." Bunnies were small rabbits and rabbits were not Volkswagens.
Designer jeans were scheming girls named Jean or Jeanne;
and having a meaningful relationship meant getting along
with our cousins.
We thought fast food was what you ate during Lent; and
Outer Space was the back of the Riviera Theater.
We were before househusbands, gay rights, computer
dating, dual careers, and computer marriages.
We were before day-care centers, group therapy and nursing
homes. We never heard of FM radio, tape decks, electric
typewriters, artificial hearts, wordprocessors, yogurt, and guys
wearing earrings. For us, time sharing meant togetherness, not
computers or condominiums; A "chip" meant a piece of wood;
hardware meant hardware,and software wasn't even a word!
In 1940, "Made in Japan" meant JUNK and the term "making
out" referred to how you did on your exam.
Pizzas, "MacDonald's" and instant coffee were unheard of.
We hit the scene when there were 5 cent and 10 cent
stores where you bought things for five and ten cents.
You could buy ice cream cones for a nickel or a dime.
For one nickel you could ride a street car, make a phone
call, buy a Pepsi, or enough stamps to mail one letter
and two postcards.
You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600....but who could
afford one? A pity, too, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In our day, cigarette smoking was fashionable.
GRASS was mowed. COKE was a cold drink.
POT was something you cooked in.
ROCK MUSIC was a grandmother's lullaby and AIDS were helpers
in the Principal's office.
We were certainly not before the difference between the sexes was
discovered, but we were surely before the sex change; we made do
with what we had. And we were the last generation that was so dumb
as to think you needed a husband to have a baby.
Mmmmmmm...so what happened, to those "good old days" ???
