My First Day At Work

October 1 2019 is my first day at BMM Hospital , which is going great , everybody including the nurses are friendly.

Today is very awkward, the person am to replace came in having dispute with the MD, she was shouting on top of voice, I really don't know what the issue is but am sure , it's about my resumption and and her payment, am here feeling sorry.

I Wish the rest of the day go well from awkward.

  • Okay so about my first at work. I was serving at this company and then they had a meeting and they were really lambasting themselves and chai I felt like I'm really in trouble. Cos they were so serious and I'm a little playfull so I had to keep my calm. But eventually everything went on well and it was a really nice year for me

  • I remember my first day at work on the 6th of June 2016. That day was like a new dimension in my life cause i left my family and siblings to travel all the way from enugu to Niger state. Well everything wasn't going well at that time because I don't understand their language (Hausa)  as of then. People that i was working with most times makes mockery of me because i don't understand the language wasn't easy then but now am one of managers here...  Don't worry dear you will soon adapt to the system don't worry about what your Co workers will say or do... Wish you good luck in your days of work my dear...

  • My first day at work was an exciting one where I worked as a supervisor at a supermarket. It was a great experience although tensed at first by the sight of new faces, but after some minutes I got to know everyone including my superiors and subordinate. It was a fun filled experience I must say.

  • My first day at work was somehow weird, My career started in this organization back in 2017, the HR took me around for introduction and the woman was scary due to the way she talks and she has this intimidating look, but the rest was history when I fully assumed a top position of the Head Internal Control officer

  • My first day at work,I am a security operative and I started the work by resuming at night I.e night duty.that very night there was a strong wind blowing. I was scared and was telling colleagues at work that evil spirit is entering. The senior colleagues were giving me courage.I did not sleep till the next day but thank God now I am used to it.

  • My first day at work as a class teacher in a private school really was heltic and terrible, I was overloaded with different work task apart from my class teacher responsibility, as a computer scientist, I will handle the computer labs, turn on the generator, handle presentation from the owner of the school and lots more just that day alone I had to use 2 dosage of ibuprofen before I could get myself back together at the end of the day..

  • Well my first day at work (printing to be precise) was quite challenging, as to, they re-interviewed me practically and you know on a new machine you need not make any mistake on settings or else it’s doomed for life, so while taking time it looked like I was a novice but I just calmly finished everything, and here I am doing well by grace.

  • My first day at work was very bad. I work in a bet9ja shop and you know how street boy could be. They started shouting for me to play game for them. It was too stressful and tasking. Although, my co-workers are very nice. They bought me things after the work of the day.. But still working there tho

  • My first day at work was so stressful because the school I was posted too was very far and no good road and no light there. I was discourage at first but when I started and started staying in the village i discovered that the people were very nice and welcoming that's when I became comfortable to do the work and am enjoying there.

  • My first day in office in a government school was boring. After seeing and presenting my deployment letter to the principal, I was asked to sit in the chemistry lab waiting for the VP academic to prepare my file. It took him 3 days to do this. Throughout these 3 days, I was sitting in the lab, without anybody talking to me. It was so boring.

  • First day at work's experience is always the same no matter the nature of the job you got, their is always that furiousity and being nervous. For me I once got a chance to work in a pure water producing company, I was very nervous and had to cope but as time goes on I became familiar and friends with even the MD

  • My first day at work was different because I was familiar with the staffs already.

    I was called back to work where I had my IT as as a student. It was natural and as though I have been there before.I blend in easily and I maintain good working relationship.

  • My first day at work was literally the worst day of my life. My boss was extremely mean and annoying. He made me feel like a fool and I hated the job because of him. Some days later,he started being so nice to me and I was surprised. I asked others why he is being so nice,they only said that's how he is. He is only mean when you are new and when you don't get things right. From that day on,we started flowing really well

  • My very first day at work was a bit hectic! It was in one of the big companies producing beverage drink, NBC (Nigerian bottling company) to be precise. 

    And I was to work at the section where they package canned drinks, it was a target oriented job and I had to work extra hard to meet up the target for the day. It was really challenging and at same time fun as I had to learn the tricks of getting the job done faster.

    It was a blissful experience...

  • my first day at work was an awkward one, I was sent on some suspicious errands to see my performance and also my colleagues were making me feel uneasy. But in the end, I became the favorite mechanic at the  shop  and my  boss's favorite worker due to my focus and dedication. I ended the day with customers praising my boss for discovering such a  dedicated worker.

  • When I started my work almost a year ago I was totally excited. I felt so happy working in the mall. It was just immediately after my service year in the state I served. So I knew if could count myself as very lucky having seen a job, as most of my friends didn't find any.

    Now it has been almost a year with my company and I  am still very grateful for this job. I do know jobs are hard to find and I thank  God. Working here has been great and colleagues turned to friends. It has been a wonderful experience.

  • I remember 2 years back when I was made an offer to become the graphics designer of Cynno Printing press. It was a great moment because I graduated from a graphics tutorial shop and it didnt take up to some weeks and I was made an offer. I think it really feels so great. My first day as the Graphics designer of Cynnos was fun, I was welcomed like a king. And that was a day to remember

  • We'll I've had one bad "first day at work"

    I was given a date to resume and so I did resume that day wearing my best clothes but guess what, after sweeping everywhere in the presence of everyone, the girl I was supposed to replace came in and in the presence of everyone I was dismissed with immediate effect.. I felt very shy but all that is now in the past

  • First days at work might be the most awkward and yet still be the most fun day, just have one thing in mind that your first day at work dosen't really determine how your time there would be like, you just have to stand your ground and be determined on what you do.

  • May 27th 2019 was my first day at Hammakkop consortium, a construction company in Okija Anambra state. The person i took over from as a security coordinator was so eager and happy to hand over to me and return to Lagos to reunite with his family having received series of beating from Okija masquerades in the course of discharging his duty while on patrol to other locations outside Hammakkop base as that was what the work entails for those of us who are conversant with security details. Initially i was afraid on hearing masquerade reason being that their masquerade in that environment is like a cult which whenever you encounter them and they ask if you have been initiated in Igbo language, you must not lie,so it is better you don't run into them at all.

    But then God was so merciful to me by sending a guiding angel to me in the person of the Chief Security Officer Mr Ahmed Usman Jnr whom i reported to on my arrival at the base in Okija,who is also my boss,he gave me all the guidelines i needed to work with which i strictly abide with and till today five months counting and still working in Okija i have never had any encounter with any masquerade as God's covenant to protect me  just like Daniel in the lions den is once again confirmed in my life. Halleluyah Halleluyah Halleluyah.

  • I’m a Corper and I serve in a school but seriously it’s been an awkward experience. The Corpers in the school are not being paid a dime and they didn’t even give us accommodation but they’ve been using the hell out of us, we must attend assembly, we mustn’t leave the school premises without permission, even if you’re sick you must come to school to take permission. It’s really been tiring out here, I really can’t wait till I’m done with service

  • My first day at work was so memorable because I was given a warm welcome and through out my stay there I was showered with so much love and care both from my managing director who was like a mother to me and down to my colleagues maybe because I abided to their rules and regulations and also always minding my business.

  • My first day at work was as an Intern in a medical laboratory.The University required all students in my department to undergo a minimum of three months and a maximum of 6 months work training as laboratory scientists. I remember watching motivational and confidence boosting videos to prepare me because i had been told that hospital work was done under pressure. The head scientist welcomed me with a smile,which i wish i had properly absorbed for that would be the last time i would see her smile that day. I made a lot of mistakes that day,spilled a lot of samples and of course got multiple insults which none of the videos could have properly prepared me for. In a nutshell though,it was horrible and i would never want to go through that experience again.

  • Well, your own is a case of replacement. Replacing someone in a place of work is usually awkward. But, for me, I worked as a new worker. It was a memorable day for me. On my arrival, all the old workers came out to welcome me and to see their new worker. Some was like, what's your name? Where are you from? Infact, it was awsawes.

The day I went an interview was my resumption day and I found it funny that my supposed interview session was the time I received my appointment letter and was asked to start work immediately. Very interesting, and confusing at the same time because I was not prepared to start work that day.

I was so furious of what the celebrants of the occasion will say after the work so out of curiosity I had to try browsing through my phone to get the best design to do.

    But at the end I was so happy cus I was appriciated well for my good design .

  • No need for long stories here as we all know how hectic teaching job is. I got employed into one school which I don't know whether it's private or secondary because the students behaved some how. Teaching them the first day was an embarrassing thing because of how stubborn the students were. You will be teaching and some will be playing at the back seat. I was advised by a co teacher to be very harsh on them so that I could get my respect. I didn't apply his advice but used another approach and today,I'm really enjoying the job.
