Yesterday, I had my orientation at Home Depot from 9 am to 3:30 pm. I had such a hard time waking up; I thoght maybe I was coming down with something. Sitting there watching videos and listening to someone talk for that long a time didn't help any. Then I got my schedule...
My first day was today from 8 to 2. I was put right on the floor watching and helping a cashier for most of the day. The last hour and a half was spent watching videos and taking quizzes in a room that was freezing. Note to self: I have more computer work. Bring a hoodie. I bought some flowers before I left, stopped at the grocery store, and have put the flowers in a pot on the balcony. Now it's time to try to unwind a bit...if I can.
I work both jobs tomorrow. That should be really interesting. I get the rest of the week off at my desk job, but only have Wednesday off at Home Depot through next Monday. Of course, I figured the newbies would work the holiday weekend. My back is a little touchy right now. I'm hoping a couple of aspirins and kicking back for a minute will cure that. Otherwise, I'm in for a looong week.
I said I'd give it a chance and that I will. But I will sure try to fit in time to apply for jobs in my field, even if it's just a couple a day.
