Introduction

Original Writing Work Experience. Apprehension set in about 40ft away from the store. Near enough to be able to see the store, but far enough away to be unnoticed- so that it would be easy to turn and run home. Despite the nerves I somehow managed to make it there on time, but not without a few thoughts on what it was going to be like. As I entered the store, I noticed the security camera, and as I walked it followed, watching my every move. Approaching the front desk, it felt as if everyone in the store was watching me, so with another look to the exit, I asked a member of staff where the managers office was- they pointed me in the direction. Once inside the complex burrows of "out back," I met most of the team, including the manager, a nice happy bunch, and friendly too. ...read more.

Middle

What is what I felt wasn't just paranoia? What if someone really is watching me? These thoughts didn't help as once more I stepped into the store, and like before I felt the eyes. Making a hasty retreat to "out back" I looked around to see what could be causing this- I saw no one. The task of "de-stickering" all gone, I had to go and find more work- I went to Steve the manager, who in turn handed me over to Chris, which meant being in the shop- where the pressure of the eyes was at it's worst. Making my way out into the shop, I noticed a door with a plaque on it proclaiming, "Security- enter with care." I hadn't seen that door before and I was wondering what could possibly be in there. ...read more.

Conclusion

Everyone I encountered who was staff I asked, and eventually someone suggested the security room, and showed me the way (even though I had seen the door and the sign). We got to the door and Craig opened it, and did I get the surprise of my life. Ten TV screens showing pictures of the store, no wonder I'd got the feeling I was being watched. As Craig pointedly said "Big Brother is watching you." With sticky labels found, it was time to go home for the day. As I left the store I got "Good bye's" from many of my colleagues, but the best part was that, even though I knew the feeling of being watched would never completely go, I was glad I knew what it was. So with a wave to the cameras, I left, only to return the next day, and start it all again at Waterstones. ...read more.
