Temp Job First Day
Upon arrival checked in with receptionist
Signing my name with 11 others on a list
Waited awhile before being led in a door
Up flight of stairs to the opposite corridor

Brief tour brought us to our workstations
Then morning training room destination
Basic company policy on screen to review
Scrolled through too fast to read it all too

ID badges and rear mirror parking permits
Many had pictures but received neither yet
All with same agency I got mine last Thursday
Time to place tags and move our cars anyway

Two systems for project appeared on big screen
Size of data boxes reduced so it could not be seen
Couple hours later separate log-ons were available
Each of us could follow along better it now enabled

Went back to our workstations to start company training
Security guidelines was the first segment but not finishing
Earlier breakfast goodies were special treat for the first day
Then catered lunch boxes as an added welcome all the way

Mid afternoon data entry project of email spreadsheets began
With list of 20 accounts and opportunity to ask questions again
Comparing names or businesses from two searches of information
Noting results on spreadsheets based on certain criteria designation

Overall, I sense the first day, all things considered, went pretty well
Any new temporary or permanent position has many stories to tell
The project may last 8 weeks instead of 12 but still an estimation
With 100 accounts each as a daily goal, not a concrete expectation
