Bad organization, and the Ministry's competition suffers another postponement


Postponed one week for the start of oral tests for the Ministry of Culture's 1,052 receptionist competition. CGIL denounces poor organization: 'irresponsible managers'.

A terse communiqu, posted on the Formez website, to alert candidates in the Ministry of Culture ’s competition for 1,052 fruition, reception and supervision staff ofyet another postponement. The oral tests, initially scheduled to take place in person in various cities across Italy starting Jan. 17, had then been moved to Jan. 31 with a change of mode (remotely and with computer tools instead of live). Now a further postponement has arrived: they will start on February 7. The reason for the delayed start is the same reason why there was the initial postponement to Jan. 31: “to ensure optimal fine-tuning of the remote examination procedures,” reads the meager note from Formez.

Insiders are on the rampage. Very critical is the association Mi Riconosci: “yesterday the MiC competition was postponed, 5 days before the oral tests. After two postponements for COVID, a year and a half of silence, another six months of waiting, a postponement in December and then this. More than two years. Are there words to define this?” In fact, the postponements were all communicated a few days before the start of the tests, thus forcing those who had made commitments (or booked hotels and travel, since at the beginning the tests were scheduled in presence and that even now for those who want to there is still the possibility of appearing at the headquarters in Rome to take the oral exam in presence) to reorganize.

Harsh words also come from the CGIL, according to which the constant postponements are simply the result of bad organization. “It finds no peace in the AFAV competition,” reads a note from FP CGIL National MiC, “which suffers yet another postponement to Feb. 7, and this time the pandemic has nothing to do with it, while instead much has been affected by an irresponsible behavior of many component managers appointed to the subcommittees who have unexpectedly shirked with last-minute resignations, except to then complain about the shortage of staff. Executives who in 2020 were all rated at the maximum and therefore all are recipients of the maximum amounts provided for goal achievement. We ask again if this can be a normal way of managing the productivity of the Offices and what sense do Brunettian sermons about the meritocracy of employees make, given that exactly it is his legislation that allows for the scattershot distribution of these allowances. Questions that unfortunately have not been answered at MIC.”
