After applying for jobs, going back and forth with a recruiter from Volt, and signing paperwork, performing a drug test, and finally my first day arrived. A new opportunity was finally here.
Today, was my first day at Fedex. I was excited and nervous. I got there a little earlier than I was supposed to. I had to meet with Jim Connolly. He was the IT director. I would be reporting to him. Jim came down to the security desk to meet with me, he gave me a tour of the building, and took me to get a photo ID badge made. I knew where the bathrooms were, and where to get coffee. I wasn’t so busy on my first day, which was kind of different for me. I was learning the ropes with an older woman named Patty. We talked about her son’s wedding, her plans for the weekend, and how she feels about her son’s fiancee’s family. It is nice to have someone to talk to. I could already tell that I would have a lot of work mommies here.
Throughout the day, I tried to hint a few times that I would love work here full-time in hopes that they would find some way to keep me on after my contract ends, but we will see! My hours here are 7am-3:30pm.
