Today was my first day of work at my new job. I arrived super early and luckily another worker found me waiting in the lobby of the office (you need a badge to enter the office area). Since I was there early, I was prepared to wait for my new manager.
I was scheduled to come in at 8am. To make a long story short, my direct manager did not come in until 8:30am. During that time, I sat with a co-worker to observe. It gave me a chance to see what the job entails.
A little over an hour later, I was sent to the computer lab to fill out a few forms and watch a few slide shows on the computer with the Human Resources rep. I was also given a tour of the building as well.
When I returned to my work area, I was told I would need to go to the main Human Resources office in Downtown, I had an appointment at 3:30pm. After that, I was told that I could go home for the day.
Without a computer login and password, I was unable to get on my own computer. The rest of the day was spent observing my co-worker until I had to leave for Human Resources.
The work environment is a typical office setting. Very laid back, but business professional. The work pace is very different from what I am used to. The actual job of answering phones is easy and comfortable work for me. I have worked in hotels as a phone operator and miss that type of work. I love answering phones and helping people over the phone. I can see that learning the computer programs may take some time for me to learn. They work with at least 10 different programs on two computer screens at one time.
I love working in an office. I have my own desk, my own work area. I cannot wait to add a few plants to my desk!
My work area is very plant friendly, so I am very excited about that. I love plants. They always brighten a room and clean the air.
