Work Experience Essay

Extracts from this document...


Work Experience Essay Rollercoaster. That's the perfect word to describe my work experience. A fortnight filled with moods, emotions and sore feet. My work experience started of at Adams the children's store in town and I ended up at a chemist in Bury Park by the end of it. It was filled with highs and lows, but it was an ordeal to go through! I had never thought a child's clothes shop would be such a headache and what I had to go through to change my work experience placement. But here goes my encounter, of the horrible store manager and the delightful pharmacists. I had butterflies, as did everyone else when they started work experience, but I already had a negative vibe from Adams. I had a feeling I wouldn't like it there. Many thoughts were going through my head as I walked into Adams. Will they like me? Will I like them? However, I put a smile on and hoped that the people were nice. There were two ladies at the counter. ...read more.


I went to work not feeling too good, but stepped through the doors with a smile, once again. I avoided talking to the workers, as they never really bothered to talk to me. Although I did ask several times what to do, but the response I got was 'just look like you're doing something and you'll be fine'. I didn't appreciate the fact that I was on work experience and the only experience I was getting was standing around doing nothing at all. Quick thinking and nerves lead me to come to the decision of leaving Adams. I didn't take into thought what the school or Adams would say. I just thought that I had to get out of here as soon as possible. My first instinct was to leave at break, taking my belongings and not going back. And that is exactly what I did. Me, being na�ve, thought that I could get away with it, without any hassle. As I had so much free time on my hands, I visited all my friends at their work places. ...read more.


When I'm older I would like to do something involving medicine, so the job related. My colleagues were very nice and entertaining. As well as this I think I got my maximum experience. I knew how to give in prescriptions and give them out. I knew how to use a till machine and price products. I knew how to stack shelves and dispense medicine. I loved the pharmacy compared to Adams. I looked forward to it each day. I came on time as well as presenting my self in the right manner. I felt sad by the end of it. I didn't want to leave; it felt as though I was going to work there for a few more days. I left the pharmacy, giving them chocolates for the great time they've given me. In return my reference was brilliant. So, know do you understand what I went through in the two weeks of work experience? Slowly but surely it got better. With a few changes and the right attitude I became more determined to finish my tasks. I was thankful that I would never need to step foot in Adams again and that my emotional journey was finally over. Samia Rashid BBE ...read more.
