Kumar Shah Work Experience Essay Watching paint dry comes to mind, or even watching grass grow. Sitting, sitting, sitting. This is not where I want to be. I want to be out, I want to be experiencing, living, running, jumping, eating, womanising, playing, screaming, laughing, anything. I could do this job with my eyes closed I mean it is not that demanding. Anyway here is how my work experience started... The prolonged business of finding my work experience started in a PSHE lesson, with my tutor telling me how important it is, however it was a couple of months before my experience started and teachers were making it out to be the time when you go out into the big cruel world and get a taste of real life, they were trying to make it sound exciting and a challenge at that. When I had to find a work experience place it occurred to me that it was time for me to grow up; that things were changing. Thinking it was time to grow up a bit I thought that I would get my work experience finalised as quickly as possible to avoid stress when it was not needed, as I had many important module tests coming up and also keeping up to date with my studies. ...read more.


was a natural, however making mistakes on a till makes you feel a little bit inferior as it does not take a rocket scientist to work it out. It was the first day and things were satisfactory. Then it was chaos. Three toddlers entered the shop, very lively delinquents with a single mother. This was the equation for trouble. My Aunt was serving the lady. Another customer came in and I was serving them, the pharmacist was advising a customer and the three children had gotten hold of lipstick on the shelf and were decorating the dull carpet. I thought it brought colour to the place. I found the situation hilarious at first, but trying to stop them is another thing. Cleaning it up is another. My next experience was cleaning, I did not expect it, but I could not argue with my employers either. I could not apply the saying so far so good to the day that I was having. It was around one o'clock I had some lunch and a break for an hour. The shop was pretty empty if customers did come they all came at the same time. They might have a plan to ruin the 'new boys' day. It was a bit like being in the army, this was like my initiation my test to try and get in. ...read more.


Well at the end of the week I was so glad I had finished. On my last day I must admit I decided to rebel a bit but nothing major. I had a laugh. So three-thirty came and I left. I was so happy with myself that I had put up with it. I went home and chilled out. I reflected on my two weeks. In the end I decided that I didn't want to be tied down in a job like this that has no real career opportunities. I went back the Tuesday afterwards to get my Work Experience paperwork signed and they offered me a Saturday job. I obliged. After working my first Saturday there. I decided it is not half as bad as I thought. Then I realised I was getting paid this time. This experience has changed me, it has given me a slight insight into life, working is not as easy as it seems and saying it doing it are two different things. It has also made me more focused preparing me for my GCSE's the next big step in my life. Now the paint has dried and the grass has grown it is time to re-decorate and cut the grass. In other words now I have decided what I'm going to do with life I am going to sort myself out and do it! ...read more.
