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.
After working at McDonalds for three weeks, I began to make new friends and was glad that I didn’t decide to quit my job. I enjoyed that I could earn my own money and didn’t have to ask my mother for money anymore. Work had been great after the first customer incident happened. I had not received any customer complaints and my manager said that I might employee of the
When I was working at Target there were two mangers that I was to train and help if they needed it. The conflict was that they come in and changed everything in our stations. Which was uncomfortable due to that I had more experience and was working there longer. Nothing work well within the ream after that point.
When I was 18 year old, I applied to work at an assisted living facility called, Crestwood Senior living (currently known as Matthews of Glendale). When I first got hired, I was introduced to all the staff and all the residents as well. After being employed there for a while I started to notice that some resident were acting different from the first time I had met them and I did not understand why. So I asked my coworker, why some of the residents were acting different and she explained to me that some of the resident have dementia. Now, at that time I didn’t really know what dementia was because I had never worked in that type of field before or have taking any classes on that type of disease. So, I decided to do a little research on my
Have you ever tried something new? Well I did one day at Kroger a few years ago. It felt funny, because no one else in my family but my dad would eat the food, and it was also a really weird food.
While attending UMD, I have held four different jobs. My main job is a summer internship through Bolton & Menk, Inc. I worked there this past summer and was re-hired for this upcoming summer. My job duties included data entry, construction observation, field measurements, and daily field reports for many multi million dollar road construction projects around the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community and Mystic Lake Hotel. I observed the installation of storm sewer pipes and service entrances in addition to doing field calculations to correct pipe grades. I also observed parking lot and roadway preparation and asphalt laydown. Concrete work was checked and tested for compliance with state regulations in addition to checking string lines for
Eighty hours in one week. A goal which all of my peers insisted I was crazy for even attempting. To the normal working class forty hours is a long week, yet I wanted to double that in only seven days. Working in a muffler shop is hard work, which made eighty hours Mount Everest, and I was determined to reach the summit.
Working at KTXT was the best experience I have had in my professional life. I learned so much at that station that I have no choice but to donate to it when I actually make a decent living. I started out as an fall intern for a semester after taking the previous summer off from school. I always wanted to work in radio, and this was finally my chance to make that happen. And BOOM...I excel at the production side of things! I taught myself years before how to edit video, so editing audio just came natural to me. My production director was relieved that she did not have to teach another student how to edit audio. I was in! I was killing it; editing live shows, sports broadcast, promos, news stories, and then the end of the semester was creeping
Hy-Vee helped me restart my life. At the beginning of August of 2016, my family moved from Hampton, Iowa to Mason City, Iowa. My dad’s job is in Mason City so it made sense for us to move. When my family moved, I didn’t know anyone up here and I needed to quit my job in Hampton as I wasn’t earning enough for it to outweigh the worth of the drive back and forth every weekend. I scoured the area for a job opening for weeks with several rejections and few promising results. Without friends or anything else to put my time and effort into, I started to drive myself insane.
Saturday afternoon I jump down from the tractor, splashing mud up my leg, coating my feet in unknown substances since I so naively decided to wear flip flops to work. I groan loudly, and gingerly climb into my truck to make my way home for lunch, glad I have a short day at work and can make my way home for a homemade burger. These have been my weekends for years, with the exception of winters where I am blessed enough to only have indoors work. My job at Windy Ridge Dairy has been time consuming and exhausting, yet beneficial. Full time in the summers and weekends during the school year, some weekdays, of work since 9th grade (summers since 7th) has been difficult, but I’ll never regret the traits such work has brought out in me.
It was a typical Wednesday morning. I was getting ready for school and I was going to be wearing my very authentic shoes that I bought from Nordstrom. Today was going to be an amazing day because my family said we could go hiking after school. So I got ready and head downstairs to eat my breakfast. Today I had pancakes with some strawberries on the side. I ate my breakfast with delicacy because I just got my braces but I was so hungry, I basically devoured all my food. Then the time 7:45 am beeped on my watch which meant it was time for me to head to school. I picked up my backpack and catched the bus.
I had so many different dreams about my future, it is amazing when you are a child, you have dream such as being a mother, a wife, becoming a pop star, creating an amusement park and writing story books. It was only later, that realize that was a fantasy. Life has taught me is valued and to understand my worth, qualities, and skills, which allowed me to be the person, I am today. Working at Taco Bell has taught me about being responsible and accountable for my action as well considered by others. There are many roles that make this job run smoothly: that being on time for work matter, and making sure I know my schedule, is what taco bell expected from me. I learned that the key to making customers keep coming back over and over is a warm smile,
I am a person who easily adapts to different professional and social environments. I have demonstrated ability to adapt flexible work practices during my employment with Prime Tooling and Blue Fox Systems. My ability to work flexibly was a key component of my employment with Blue Fox Systems. The office culture at Blue Fox was very fast paced and reactive in nature. It required constant attention to detail, the ability to re-prioritise, and flexibility. Being an IT organization, the pressure and demands upon each staff member required that we were able to take on whatever duty or priority task was required at the time, either as a member of a team or as an individual. In my daily work, I am flexible to leave what I am working on and assist
This semester I feel I have grown more as an academic student and as a global citizen. I feel that our Job shadow project helped me be a better Academic student, and that the Malala field trip my school went to helped me become a Global Citizen.These two things have helped me become a better student in their own ways.
I worked three hours on Saturday 8/15/2015 and three hours 8/16/2015 at Old Navy. I worked on the registers both days. Saturday was the slowest day I have ever worked so far. This is probably due to the fact people were no longer back to school shopping and it was late at night. I learned about what to do when it is slow in the store which is organize the merchandise in the lines and in the front of the store. My manger gave me the project to organize the shoes which tend to get very messy. This posed a challenge as there were no hangers for all of the shoes on the rack. I had to strategically place them so the rack to look neat. I also had organize the sunglasses and jewelry. I was then taught how to take out the trash and re-bag the hanger
