Speaker1(M):I joined the financial division of Brown Industries in 1985,and was sent to the Chicago office to work.
In 1990 I was transferred to New York,where I worked for five years.

I enjoy my job,and it's a very beautiful city here,but people are not as friendly as in New York.

After graduating I joined a medium_sized company in Bristol as a researcher in 1990.
In 1993 I was promoted to Assistant Manager of the section.
After two more years I was promoted again to Manager.
I stayed in Bristol until 1996.
In 1996 I was transferred to our new office in Tokyo,Japan.
I enjoy the challenge of working here,but I'm having trouble learning the language.
You will hear a man talking about how his company is organized.
Listen and decide if the following statements are true(T)or false(F).
I'd like to tell you something about how IBC is organised.#p#副标题#e#
As you know,we are now a subsidiary of Brown Industries,which is a 78% shareholder in our company.
That,of course,is why you are here today,and we are very pleased to meet you all.

This is the division which produces business solutions_soft_ware_for IBC's customers.

He's been with us for a couple of years now and he is very experienced.
Actually he's just been made manager of Products Support Section.

In this part,you will hear five short pieces.
For each piece,decide who is talking from the list in the box.
Write one letter A_H next to the number of the piece.You will hear the five pieces twice.
13.(F)If you could just wait for a few minutes,I'll tell Mr.Jones you're here.
Would you mind filling in some details in our visitor's book?
You could write down the time and date of appointment and also the registration number of your car.
When you are ready to leave,would you sign out but putting your initials in the final column?
14(M)Part of my job is to ensure that passengers are aware of and comply with the safety regulations.
I'd say that most important aspect of my work is to make everyone feel we are providing a good service.
This involves serving food and drinks and checking that everyone is comfortable.
15.(F)Perhaps you'd like to have a look at the catalogue of our new range.
It was a huge success of our recent exhibition in London.
Of course,you can't find cheaper computers on the market.
But we feel that our prices are very competitive given the innovative design and technology involved.
16.(M)I usually begin by checking the vehicle over to find out what the problem is.
Sometimes this means stripping the engine down.
We keep most spare parts in stock,but sometimes there is a delay and we have to get something delivered.
17.(M)Good morning.Here are the computer deyboards that you ordered.
Let's see,according to the invoice,there should be 18.
Could you check the number of boxes when I'm unloading them from the van and then sign for them at the bottom of the sheet?
You will hear five people talking about their jobs.
For each person,choose which type of job they do from the list in the box.
Write one letter A_H next to the number of the person.You will hear the five speakers twice.
18.(F)We offer an overnight door_to_door service nationaly and we can normally promise delivery to most destinations worldwide within 24 hours.
That's seven days a week of course.
19(M)I prefer working on stock control to the check_out.
You move around or talk to managers in four seasons.
There's more variety.If you're on the check out,you just sit there for a whole shift doing the same thing,taking money,handing out changes...
20(F)There's special discount on Monday evenings when it's the first performance of the new show.
You can get two tickets for the price of one.
Then there are the usual concessions for pensioners of course with a further ten percent off matinee tickets.
21.(M)Money transactions are going to be completely electronic.
Paper work is out,the VDU screen is in.#p#副标题#e#
Cheques are being used less and less,replaced by the cash card.
And 75% of with_drawals are now made from High Street cash machine.
I feel we really do offer a much better service these days.
22.(F)Actually I quite enjoy checking and double checking the flight details,hotel bookings,traveller's cheques and so on.
I enjoy the feeling that everything has been thought of,just as if I was going myself.
You will hear a job applicant talking to the Personnel Manager of a chain of stores.
Choose the correct phrase to complete each sentence.
F:Er,good afternoon,Mr Cast.Thank you for coming_do take a seat.
F:Right...I've looked through your letter of application and your curriculum vitae...mm.interesting.
I see you're nearly28...Well,I think I better tell you generally about the job we have on offer here.
It's an important position.It's an Assistant Managership reporting directly to the Store Manageer.
It covers several of the aspects of our business...supervising the purchasing of goods and deliveries,pricing,special offers and so on...Anyway,...
I see you have some experience with one of our main rivals_can you tell me something about that?
M:Yes,well...After I left school,I joined Tesco stores as a trainee,er,I was 18 then.
M:Er...after the initial six months'trial period,they sent me to their retail training centre for a month...then I went back to the branch in Sima.
I then went to night school for two years to get a Diploma in Commerce...and I did a short computer studies course at the University last summer as well.
Anyway,I worked in the Sima branch for another couple of years.
I really enjoyed it there.
But then Tesco moved me to the city centre branch and it wasn't quite so good,I'm afraid.
F:Why was that?
M:Well...I'm afraid the General Manager and I had different opinions...there was a terrific downturn in retail sales six years ago...shoppers weren't spending much.
Anyway,I thought we ought to advertise the goods in our store more widely,to draw in more customers.
I had a few ideas but we couldn't agree on a policy.
It was a shame.
I had hoped to move up to Deputy Assistant there,but the job was given to someone else,so I thought it was time to move on.
F:I see.Well,could you tell me what you do in your current job...at Town and Country Stores,isn't it?
M:Yes...I've been there for nearly two years now.
I help with store displays and promotions,and I have also been in complete charge from time to when the proprietor is away at trade fairs and so on.
But my main job is to do with the shop assistants_there are nearly 40,mostly part_timers.
I used to supervise the cleaners and also the typists at one time too,but it became too much.
F:So why are you looking for another job,Mr Cast?
M:Well,I expect you know it's family firm and there's really no chance of getting ahead...the proprietor's son will take over when Mr Richards retires in two year.
So I'd like to get back into a big chain,with a number of stores,
where there are more opportunities for training and promotion,thought I must say the working conditions at Town and Country are pretty good.
F:Right,well,thank you,Mr Cast.
I expect you realise that our company moves its staff to different branches just like Tesco.
Now how would you feel about that?
M:Sure,that's all right for me.I was going to ask you something about that,if I may?
M:Well,I understand from the press that you have recently opened stores in three American cities_is there any possibility of...uh...being moved into one of those,after a time?
F:Well,not really.All shop staff are recruited locally in America though the stores are being managed at present directly from our Head Office in Britain.
The plan is for total independence,with locally recruited managers,within five years.
M:I see...and another question is to do with this position here again.
Does it involve much contact with customers?
I really enjoy getting to know what is selling well,how to give the best service and so on...
F:Yes,well,not a great deal really.That's generally dealt with by Customers Services.
As I said,it's mostly dealing with our producers,checking that orders are delivered on time,checking product quality,that sort of thing.
The General Manager is the one who tries to understand the sales figures.
F:Anyway...if you were offered the job,Mr Cast,when would you be able to start?
M:Well,I am on four weeks'notice at Town and Country...but the proprietor is away for two weeks,
so I wouldn't be able to see him until the beginning of next week...so it would take about six week,probably.
F:Right,I see.Well,I think we should discuss now the terms and conditions we could offer you here.
As you know,we have different salary scales based on...(fade).
