Work etc…

Ok. Long long time and no blog entry, but that’s the way it’s been since the last one.

Exams were horrid, at one point I thought I was going to get forced to withdraw or at least have to retake some but I managed to get an average of 73% which is a 1st again so all’s good.

The week after exams was WSAF (Warwick Student Arts Festival) which was all good fun despite the rain and living a bus journey away. I can’t remember many details at the moment but it was all good.

The week after that I started my placement year job at RBI (Reed Business Information) in Sutton, London (Surrey/Greater London really but London sounds cooler). Being straight after Uni I didn’t have a chance to find accommodation there so I got a 7-day train ticket for ~£70 and commuted down.

I left home at 7am monday morning to get the train(s) to be at Sutton by 9am only to find that reception didn’t have any record of me atall. Great! After some phone calls he verified that I was actually starting work and I got a day entry pass and a voucher for a free cup of tea or coffee (with my name spelt “Payne”). That was fine.

We then went into the AV Theatre (small room) for induction. That all seemed fine until it got to the end and HR came round to get everyones Passports, NI nos and signed forms. What signed forms? When was I told to bring my passport? It appeared that I was supposed to have had a pack with all this info in and my contract, to sign and return, through the post weeks ago. Since I hadn’t received anything I had assumed that it was all sorted on the first day.

As you can see, my first day went really, really well. That’s only half of it. The rest of my 1st day will come tomorrow as I want to go home now.
I’m still at work writing this as I don’t have internet at home at the moment, will do tomorrow though. Woo.

See ya
