A hellhole data entry centre that is populated by teenagers and useless managers, paid nearly twice as much as the people they make do all their work.
The minnions (or WGMs) are gernally fat greasy males or attractive young blondes who have bedded the fat greasy males, who patrol the area, strutting around looking important, and making sure that the mortals (or Keyers) keep looking at their screens at all times.
Common phrases often heard at MDEC are:
"You should be back keying by now" (meaning "you are 15 seconds late back from break and I'm trying to impose my authority. My God I'm so important.")
"Would you like to see your seeds?" ("You dared to make a mistake last week and I'm going to mull over it with you")
"Sick absence is still too high" ("We make you book your annual leave 18 months in advance and now you tell us you need a day off?")
"I quit" ("I quit")
The average "life-span" (the time it takes for a keyer to become so desparately bored with the job that they run out crying) is 18 months.

Data entry for mail that Royal Mail sorting machines are unable to read !

These manager have been mainly been promoted internally on the basis of how fast they are able to key (data entry ) and who's ass they have been willing to kiss whilst doing so.Most of these managers would not be able to function outside the Mdec they would be eaten alive in the private sector.
They will bully every bit of sence out of you until you become just like them.
There are so many international students mainly Msc Asians/African hanging on to Mdec jobs just so they can satisfy the Home Office "skill workers visa system" its scary.I can just see these guys at an interview in three years time !
