My First Day and I Didn't Embarrass Myself!

So I walk in on my first day and join some other new hires that are waiting for orientation.  When it's my turn to go get my badge done, the machine runs out of ink.  The security guy legit looks scared to death since we were in a rush to get to a 9am meeting.  Come to find out the person who usually handles badges was out today so he was filling in.  So they tell me to come back to pick up the badge. I ended up getting my badge at about 2 o'clock. Mind you, I can't leave my floor because without a badge I can't access ANY doors.

Also, I do not have a laptop, phone or even a cubicle to actually sit in. So yeah. I am currently using someones desk who is out on vacation.  Let's see how it long it takes till I get my own desk and a computer.

Besides that, I have sat in a few meetings and kind of shadowed some of the team members.

The cool thing about this place is that everyone has toys in their cubes!  Some people even have a whole theme going on. I have learned that they go ALL OUT for birthdays with decorating cubes.  I even heard of a Mad Men theme where they even laid out flooring in the cube.  On my way out today, someone had a pony.... the ones where a five year old can get on and rock back and forth.  Yep, that big one. In their cube. It was pretty hilarious.

Guess that's the fun part of working in the corporate office of a big toy company!

Sounds like a fun place to work! :)

It took them over a week to get me settled into my desk when I started my job. LOL.

Why do I have a feeling that you will fit in just perfectly there?!?

Um, can I come work there too?! We don't even celebrate birthdays here anymore (budget cuts- blah), let alone have toys!!

Glad you had a great first day. My mom has worked for TRU for about 10 years and she loves it. I call all her coworkers the TRU Crew :)

I haven't been around in a little bit. Glad to hear that you have moved on to a new job that sounds ROCKIN! Is this a temp one too? Or is this one more permanent?

Hope all is well!
