Your First Day on the Job
Be early but enter on time
Work out how long it will take to get you to work for your start time, making allowances for traffic. Check out a road map so that you know exactly how to find the address, and if you are using public transport check the timetables.
If your workplace is in a different location to your interview and you have time do a practice run getting to work so that you are familiar with the route and how long the travel will take
If you are unfortunately taken ill on your first day call the employer before your scheduled starting time. If you do not have a contact number for your new employer contact your Link Worker or Employment Consultant as soon as possible
Dress according to the dress code, if you are unsure what to wear contact your Link Worker or Employment Consultant for assistance
As part of your induction you should be shown where to keep your lunch and personal things, and where restrooms are located, if you are unclear just ask
If no formal induction is given, ask if there are any employment administration forms such as income tax, superannuation, timesheets to complete
Check the personal mobile phone policy, if you need to make important personal phone calls flag this with your employer
Find out where, when and how long to take for your lunch break. Stick to the break times allocated to you
If you meet a co-worker you have not been introduced to, introduce yourself
Listen carefully and observe. Taking notes is recommended.
Think about limiting your personal opinions on the first day. It takes time to understand your new job and workplace
Say goodbye when you leave for the day
Goodluck, first days can be stressful. Relax and don’t forget to be happy and enjoy the moment
