Today is my Friday! So glad to have a day off even though I just started working. But I’ve been working for six days straight, so… Anyways, I’m getting the hang of working the register. It would’ve been so much easier my first couple of days if they had stuck me with a different trainer. My first three days on the register I was stuck with a Filipino woman, and she wasn’t very good at explaining what I needed to know. She’d do things and not explain to me how she was doing it. But today I got stuck with another lady, and I learned so much. She explained in detail things that I should’ve already known. But everyone keeps telling me I’m doing really good, and I’m already put on my own register with my own cash bag (a bag of cash I get when I start my shift that I put in my register drawer, which I’m responsible for). I actually walked up next to my shift supervisor and manager while I was getting more sales magazines, and they had been talking about me and how I’m doing really good. It made me feel pretty good. :)
My first day at my new job went pretty good. It was really busy, though. And there’s just so much to memorize. But my trainer kept telling everyone I was doing a really good job, and she even bought me lunch. The only thing I’m worried about is not knowing what to do and messing up. My register made almost $11,000 today, and I was only there for about 7 hours. :o
I start my first day on the register tomorrow! I’m kinda nervous because there’s so much to memorize, and the policies are a little more strict because it’s on a military base. But the employees have been so friendly, and there are quite a few Filipino women working there. Like, I feel like that gives me brownie points with them lol. I just hope I like it a lot.
I have to be at work at 8:30 tomorrow morning! Then I’ll get to leave at 12:30. On Thursday I’ll have to be there from 8:30 - 4:30. I don’t think I’ll really be working, though. I think it’s gonna be orientation, and I think we might even get a tour and some history of the place. But I’m not sure when I’ll actually be put on a register. I really hope I’ll like this job and the customers aren’t too rude… and I hope I’m good at it. Please, Lord Jesus, help me be good at it!
I have to be at the Exchange at 10 tomorrow morning to do some in-processing for my new job, and then I start on Wednesday! Ahhhhh! I’m excited and nervous at the same time.
