Eileen Smith: Reminiscence

Eileen Smith: Role in Lyons included filling out Lector Forms.  

I worked for J Lyons and Strand Hotels. November 1962 I joined the company as a trainee supervisor in the Corner Houses under the direction of Miss Clancy and Mrs Silverlock. It was a 9 month programme followed by a posting to one of the units. I went to The Grill and Cheese and The trolley Restaurants at the Tottenham Court Branch. Miss Brett was the House Manager. As part of my training I had to learn how to complete the LEO time sheets. I don't remember too much other than we had to use a particular strength of graphite pencil and only fill in the brackets [sausages] very carefully. If you went over the bracket then wrong payments were made.

I enjoyed my time with the company but moved on to manage a restaurant having completed a 3 year full time programme on Hotel Management before coming to London for work.
