Alex – sales coordinator job interview
On my first day at work, I went straight to the stationery area and got myself some stationary: I grabbed a notebook and different pens. All because I have a stationary fetish. I love all types of stationary. Don't judge.
Your new desk is now your new home away from home. This is where you will be spending a lot of your time, even more than you would be spending at your real home.
I accidentally tipped over a cup of water near my supervisor's very expensive laptop an hour later. In a panic, I tried to grab the laptop without realizing it was attached to a number of different things including a monitor. The monitor nearly fell over, but it ended up well. Somehow, I still have the job. And I haven't felt that nervous ever again.

First day at work. Steve
I was on cloud nine when I successfully passed the interview to my dream company. I was both excited and nervous on my first day.
On my first day, it was pouring terribly outside. Somehow, I finally managed to get to the office by 9:30. I was supposed to meet the HR. But because of the heavy rains, the HR-manager was very late to the office. It was around 11.30 when she finally came to see me. The moment she met me, she said there was a training session I need to attend. Five kilometers away from the office. I managed to reach the place by 12:30 and rushed to the room where the training was supposed to be already happening. I slowly opened the door trying not to interrupt the session.
The trainer welcomed me without asking any question. I occupied one of the vacant seats. In 15 minutes the trainer announced it was time for lunch. When everyone was rushing to attend the buffet, I thought it was good time to check with trainer on the relevance of the training, just then my phone rang. The call was from my HR who told me I was in the wrong room for the wrong training. It was embarrassing when it happened, but now it's another memory to laugh at.

First day at work. Alice
I was very anxious about my first day, so I prepared everything: I've laid out my first day of work outfit, packed my first day of work lunch, set aside my favorite mug for the first day of work coffee, and cleaned out my car for the first day of work ride. I was so ready for this.
(Actually, I wasn't)
Freelance has been my job for three and a half years before that. I found myself during this time. I discovered some hidden talents, I learned how to cook and I traveled a lot. I started a blog. I learned to be comfortable in my own skin without wearing make-up for over three days in a row.
But, now it was time. I was heading back to the big exciting and scary world of office work. I've done this before. I could do it again.

First day at work. Elisa
During the meet-and-greet, as I was getting to know people, I was getting lazy with asking everyone's names and positions, so when I finally got to the last person, I said: "So what do you do here?"
It was the founder of the company. I asked The Founder of the company what was he doing there.
The end.
