It had to happen eventually: today was my first day of work. Driving into work I thought to myself that I should just go immediately to Columbus and acquaint myself with all the local customs before the school year begins. Wouldn’t this be a better use of my time? Sadly the more rational side of my mind knows that it wouldn’t be.
As a temp my job is basically to learn jobs quickly. You don’t really have to master the job, but you need to be able to do most everything within a day or two. Luckily I’m pretty good at this. I may not get the fine details right immediately, but I pick up 80% after a try or two. So my first day at the job went pretty well. Of course I wasn’t learning most of the job, but relearning it since I held the same position for nearly two months last summer. Enough has changed at the pharmacy (computer programs, procedures etc) to keep me on my toes, but I was able to stay busy for 8 hours with no supervision and only a couple questions.
Here’s hoping that tomorrow likewise brings no overdoses or lawsuits.
