Forever 21 Orientation

Currently listening to: Angel of Mine – Icarus Account

Feeling: Photobucket

So today I went to Scarborough Town Centre for my orientation at Forever 21! As usual I slept at 6am and got like an hour of sleep. I woke up at 7 and was out the door at 7:45am with my dad. Got to Scarborough Town Centre at around 8:30 and then after much wandering found the Forever 21 XD!

The orientation was straight-forward enough. Learned the rules of the store like the dress-code, what to expect, what we’d have to do in various situations, and did lots of paper work. Learned about store targets, colour codes, number of breaks, how to clock in, and I also didn’t realize so many people shoplifted O.o Most of the time I was just staring around the store eager to buy stuff because I had never been to the F21 at Scarborough Town Centre before. In fact I don’t recall the last time I was at the mall.

Anyway, so I am now officially a Sales Associate at Forever 21 for Markville Mall :D I start on Monday, and the store officially opens on Saturday the 29th.

I’m nervous and excited for this whole probation period thing. Apparently 250+ people were hired for the grand opening at Markville, but even I know you don’t need that many people to run it. I suspect mass firing afterwards. I also know I shouldn’t call in and stuff during the first 3 months but I’m anxious about when I will have my time of month :/ I get death pains where I am rendered useless and immobile on my bed as I try not to moan in agony. I can’t even eat, I just attempt to sleep away the pain. But I’ll deal with that when the time comes.

SO YEAH. I am happy I have a job now (not so happy that I only get a 10% discount) but I won’t be able to visit McMaster and MJC as often now :(
