A young Nigerian man who applied for a cleaner position at Old English Bakery and Superstores, Ikeja GRA, has narrated how he was offered N25K (about $60) monthly salary for 15 hours of work daily.
The young man who did not reveal his name said he is expected to resume by 6:30 am and close by 10 pm every day.
He shared his story on a popular Nigerian forum. Read below:
I saw this cleaner job vacancy at Old English bakery at GRA, Ikeja, Lagos after months of job hunting. Due to the unavailability of one’s preferred kind of job, I like hotel jobs a lot, I decided to submit my CV to one of the bakery security men. It is hard to get a hotel job at GRA Ikeja despite the big and many hotels located there though. Man know man things.
I was called to come for an interview at their head office in Omole phase 1. I attended the interview. But the salary is manageable being that I am a single man without even a girlfriend. Early 30’s. But the resumption time was shocking. I would resume by 6.30 am and closes by 10 pm for #25k! Which kind of cleaning work be that?
And the bakery is own by a Nigerian. No break or free lunch. My mind told me there were other tasks I would be doing apart from cleaning because no cleaner would work till that time. So has anyone who has worked there before knows the job description in Old English Bakery?
