So who watched the premiere? Couldn’t’ve missed it if you watched the Super Bowl, since it was on right after.
The premise is simple: CEOs of varying large companies step out of the office, and take on a new identity for a week, working right alongside their lowest-level employees. They might learn that the policies they write aren’t working as intended, or discover individuals of questionable character working for them. Nothing is staged, and there’s no problems manufactured by the producers. They simply document what happens.
Last night’s show featured the president and COO of Waste Management, with ‘man making a documentary about trying entry-level jobs in the company’ as his cover.
Because of their diversity of services, he was able to try new roles each day, all across the country. While I think he focused more on a personal level than I’d’ve liked, he did find areas where either his policies were put into place poorly, or simply affected morale too much. To his credit, he admitted his mistakes and changed them.
Next week, it’s the top dog at Hooter’s… that should be fun to watch.
If you have anything to add, or want to discuss, it seems like this is the place.
