First day at work experience

Extracts from this document...


My first day at work experience I remember the first time I met my supervisor. Oh yes, it was a nightmare, I tell you! Ten long, boring hours with Mrs Mcgreen were torture! Believe me, spending time with her would be the last thing you would ever want to do. From the moment I stepped through the broken sliding doors of the "99p" store, she was on my case. Admittedly, I was ten minutes late but it was only my first day! Mrs McGreen roared her way from the till right to my face, screaming to herself.

There were papers piled from floor to ceiling and collapsing boxes in each, cobweb-covered corner. I didn't know where to start. Suddenly, I smelt something new hit the dank air and realised my supervisor was behind me. "I've tidied up for you," she stated, before storming out again.
