I realized after being able to handle an angry customer positively, I have matured working at Wendy’s. To be able to not step out of character when someone you don’t know is yelling at you because of tomatoes is huge. Having a job helped me practice professional skills. I also had to learn to save money because the same weekend I got my check I spent half of it. My first job made me feel like a complete adult, and although it was stressful, maturing is a step in life I knew I was going to face soon
Everyone has their first memory when they have to enter the adult world, mine just happened to be my junior year of high school. This year was just a little glimpse of what was going to be the rest of my life. Getting my first job was bitter sweet. I had to learn how to manage my time between school, sports, and now a job. After my first week of school I had to start my new job.
I was born May, 30th 1989 at Wadley Medical in Texarkana, Ar. I was born to Kym Crispino from Queens, NY and William Lee of Hot Springs, Ar. My parents were young when they had me. We were very poor at times, but they always made sure I had what
I graduated high school back in 1994. I was engaged to be married in just two years, and even though I joined the Pennsylvania Air National Guard right after graduation it was only one weekend a month and two weeks out of the year. So I needed a full-time job. A friend of the family knew a guy who was opening a second store, and was going to need a store manager. I took the job and got started. What I didn’t know was the guy I was just hired to work for was a little confused as to what he wanted. I hung onto the job for a little over a year hoping it would turn around but, no dice.
Although jobs had been scarce, I had been lucky enough to acquire a job in a Steel mill in the industrial area of Tulsa. Many people were against working there due to the conditions in which we were forced to deal with. Rats littered the building, some open, upper floor areas had no railings, and the machines would occasionally get themselves stuck on something. I reluctantly was able to convince my boss to allow my father to work with me. The job had been very dangerous and hard, but I made just enough money to provide for my family. The difficult work and hazardous conditions, while not preferable, enabled us to stay
At the beginning of this school year, I began to realize something. I realized that my high school years were coming to an end. This was an eye opener for me. I didn't know what to expect of my last year nor what I wanted to do after high school. I then began looking for a job. So I applied to Chick-fil-a. I waited patiently several weeks for a call, but received no call whatsoever. I patiently waited for a new opportunity to come along. Until finally, I was given an opportunity at an electrical shop. On the first day of work I was introduced to the staff and learned the procedures of what needed to be done. My job now was to maintain the shop clean and to keep all materials organized as well as other tasks that helped me grow with my skills.
I have not had very much experience as an employee during my youth. My first time doing real world work was the day that I volunteered at my father’s office at the New York City Department of the Aging for two hours. It was apparently a day off from work because no one other than him, myself, and his supervisor were there, but I helped my father organize and file some papers. After my brief stint as a volunteer, my first, and only, actual job I was paid for was over this summer at the Eileen Abraham Insurance Agency. I got the job through a program called the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). This program helped young adults, like myself, get summer jobs around the city in various different fields. I specifically chose the Eileen
I started to work as a waitress at very young age. I stopped receiving education because my grades at school were not good and studying seemed to be boring. Working in my twenties appeared to be more adventurous and full of promises. As the time passed by, my routine at work turned out to be a nuisance. I was feeling empty inside without knowing the reason. As my level of expertise in the catering business was growing, the idea of starting up a restaurant on my own was beginning to take shape. I believed to know how to handle a business but I was missing all the technicalities. Getting back to school was a good alternative though I did not feel ready.
My Accomplishment The recession was becoming a huge thing for the American people in 2008. People began to lose their houses; people were laid off their jobs you see more homeless in the streets. Soon the American people were scared that the recession will soon hit to the depression. Unfortunately, my family were the ones effected by the recession and we end up losing are house and my father was laid off from his job so we end up living with are aunt. My father tries to get back to his feet by selling some are things in a garage sale. After all, that my dad decided to go to school for a CDL training program so he can become a truck driver. It took him 4 months until he got his CDL and then obtain a job at Bolingbrook. We were finally getting back to are feet and then I graduated in 2012 and then I decided to get a job instead of going straight to college. The reason I chose to get a job first was because so I can help my family; and to tell you the truth the job I obtain was my first job ever and the only reason I obtain this job because my father sister helped me get in so you can imagine how nervous I was when I first started. I really wanted to make a good impression and show them I was a hard worker. So the position they give me was shipping and receiving clerk and I’m like it doesn’t sound so hard.
I worked on a job that I believed that I would have until I retired from corporate America. Throughout my career, I received many promotions, accolades and raises. In January 1988, after leaving the US Army, I relocated to Dallas Texas began working for FoxMeyer Drug Company
When I left school, I became a Milk Wagon driver. Then I felt like fog that just crept around from job to job from being a Porter, a Bricklayer, Hotel Servant, etc. I had to make money to help support my family which cost my education.
I returned to school after re-entering the workforce after being a stay at home parent for nearly 8 years. I had found employment in property management; a field I was adept in and had received promotions previously. However, I found it to be unfulfilling. At the same time
Our course in Job Searching in 21st Century was a one of my favorite courses I had at USD. At first, I thought the course was a simply one credit class where I would just do some online work and get away with a good grade. Now with the eight weeks up, I find the course to be one of my favorites because it made me think of my future. I understood that the course was for majority of seniors, but as a sophomore it is perfectly fine for anyone to think about their future. As a freshmen, I had no idea what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to work with sports and somewhat business. Then I came to the conclusion of Sports Management. The great thing about sports management is that the major is open to lots of things in the world. I can work with
Background I do not remember very much from my first work experience. I was the co-owner of a lemonade stand with my aunt at age 5. We set up on the corner of my grandma’s street, which was right next to where the city was doing some road work. We did not make a lot of money, but this was essentially the first time I “worked” for money. From this experience, I learned that a smile and a positive attitude go a long way. My next work experience came when I was around 14 at my stepfather’s flooring company. I have been working there for about 6 or 7 years now. I have learned a significant amount from working here. For years I planned on taking the company over but this summer I realized that I’m not passionate about it and could not spend years working there. Though I do not want to work there long term, working at my stepfather’s company has taught me a lot about owning and operating a company. I have learned a lot about interacting with people– customers, suppliers, and people that want to bring you down. It has been a truly unique experience because I have seen the company grow and I have grown up with it. Also, since coming to LMU and studying business, I’m seen as more of a supervisor and leader. I have implemented a few changes that have greatly improved the efficiency from what I have learned in various classes I have taken so far. I also worked briefly in the LMU library and quit after one semester because my supervisor barely acknowledged my existence and
Even though I dropped out of high school, I never told my mother. Trying to cover my truancy, I got a full-time job which I despised. My manager was very arrogant and very condescending when he spoke. The customers were rude, the manager was pompous, so I quit because I could not bear being disrespected by people who were irrelevant to me. I knew my life was on a
