Enjoying Work

Updated on February 11, 2015

A New Beginning Day Two

This day couldn't come soon enough

For the next two weeks I go on training

I shadow someone and follow their every move

They have given me a manual with company guide lines and rules

I can bring it home to study and learn

I watch as the people around me are busy at work

Trying to take it all in

I have a few questions and fire them off

My trainer answers each one with no hesitation

The person has been doing their job for a number of years

It is clearly their profession

I don't know how long I will stay here

It is funny to see behind the scenes of any operation

To see them do a good job and make their customers happy

The feeling of satisfaction

I watched as people did their assigned jobs

Seeing different nationalities and cultures working together like a team

Speaking only English I felt at a disadvantage

Listening to a foreign language

Watching their mannerisms

Trying to pick up on what their talking about

Soon I was called to do a different job that I wasn't familiar with

I watched and tried it looked so easy

I found out instantly how hard it really is

Having deep respect for my trainer who is taking his time and showing me once again

This time in a different way

I am starting to catch on

It is easy to beat yourself up

When you don't do something right

The mood is less festive and more serious

Down to business

Reminded by a manager

We have to do things right

Mixed feelings and emotions

As business picks up

Tensions rising

As another employee is reprimanded

For not doing the job he was asked to do

An equal mix of men and women

Some students in college and others their second job

Two older people in their early sixties busy working

I wonder how long they will keep working before retirement

The day went well

I am slowly seeing changes

Some good some bad

I am happy to call it a day

My brain is ready to explode

As I leave I say goodbye to everyone

A good feeling that I earned my pay today

      Michael - Milec There is so much to learn in any job .We forget those memories after we are there for awhile. Learning makes us grow in directions we are not always aware.Only later we may see how wonderful things turned out because of changes in our life.Gypsy Lee Rose I love that song.Thank you both for your wonderful comments.

      Joy56 I am still at the same job. Here on the HubPages I make up the funny farm workplace in my mind. A place of mischief and the unknown. Where everyone can share their own experiences and create new ones at the same time. Thank you visiting. Please come back soon.
