Annual Performance Review

Annual Performance Review

Out here in Glen Allen and Richmond, Virginia Annual Performance Reviews are used to lay people off -- just ask the folks out at ECPI Technical College between March and May.

If you're writing your own performance review it seems to me your supervisor isn't doing much or just doesn't have much of a job to do and is probably goofing off more than anything else. My recommendation would be to show where you excel with FACTS, for example how many items you sell, produce or place on the floor, based on whatever turnover of products and how it relates to the company profits. Do your efforts bring in more money ? Sure, they'd have to otherwise you wouldn't be working -- so give yourself a pat on the back -- and make sure you put that in your performance review.

Additionally, how much supervision do you do ? How many people, what do they do and do you schedule work for them or do their timesheets for them ? Any supervision means you are doing supervisory work - show it !

Also, what initiatives have you done or are you currently doing ? Do you put up posters to help market products and advertise your company's wares ? Have you helped in finding new products and services that your company has offered ? Put that in your reviews as well.

There are probably a lot more things you haven't thought of, just have a think while you're driving home sometime and you'll come up with a slew of things YOU have done that are worthy of an excellent review !!!

By-the-way, if you get a bad APR, don't stress about it, it WON'T follow you to your next job. Most of the time performance reviews are nothing more than TPS Reports and mean little other than to impress management and make them think they're accomplishing something they're not...Performance reports are in fact a BIG waste of money in a LOT of cases. I'd rather be earning money actually doing work that writing some inflated report that doesn't really express what a person is really worth to the company in reality...

How can a company judge a person based on something someone else with a twisted sense of reality wrote -- If I were your manager I'd want to actually SEE what you do and judge it for myself than read it from someone with a B.S. in English and grammatical studies... lol :-P
