Your First Day on the Job
Be on time (check transport arrangements and starting time).
If you are ill, call the employer before starting time. Attendance is very important in keeping a job.
Dress appropriately for the job. In all cases, look clean and tidy.
Keep personal phone calls to an absolute minimum – preferably NIL.
If you smoke, find out about regulations and smoking arrangements in your workplace.
Find out where and when to take breaks and lunch. Don’t overstay.
Listen carefully, observe and take notes.
Find out who your supervisor is – you are usually only responsible to one person.
Ask questions when you are being shown tasks – it lets the person know that you are paying attention.
Find out where to keep your lunch and personal things and where restrooms are located.
If no formal induction is given, ask if there are any employment administration forms to complete – income tax, superannuation, timesheets, etc
In the beginning your opinions may not always be considered. It takes time to earn the respect of employers and workmates, but once earned you may be given more responsibility.
If you are a school leaver or have been out of work for a long time, you may find that starting early in the morning and working a full day is quite tiring. This is normal, and you will soon get used to the longer hours.
Overall, do your very best to make a good impression.
