Usually on a basic work day, I would come in through the back lobby door and open the neighborhood computer lab.
I would turn on the computers, set up the chairs, and date the sign-in sheets so my co-workers can sign in.
It was 12 of us in all, including myself, and we would work 8 hours a day, Monday-Thursday earning $75.00 a week.
This job taught – more... me about Microsoft Word, how to create spreadsheets, filing, and organizing. I did this type of work every other day, Monday and Wednesday. On Tuesday and Thursday I would do janitorial work, such as: Sweep the computer lab and laundry room floors, mopping also, pick up the trash, empty the trash, tape notices next to the elevator, ect.
My supervisor and manager, Katrina Herring, was amazing. She made the job easy for all of us, by making sure everyone did their part and not slouch and mess around. My co-workers were great. I got along with them tremendously. They were easy out-going people that can put a smile on anyone's face. When I was put in charge they didn't argue with me or make any situation difficult, and they got the job done.
In the beginning the hardest part about the job was learning about Microsoft and filing, but after a couple days the work was a breeze. I'm a very fast learner.
Last but not least, The most enjoyable part of the job was on random days when everything was done and there was still time left, we would get to go home early or be on the computers recreationally.
I loved those days. – less
