    Today was my first day of work experience at Whsmith. I was quite nervous to start. The Lady who had given me work experience started me off by showing me my office and asking me a few questions about what Whsmith sells and what do i understand by retail. She also allowed me to choose my break and lunch times. My mum was allowed to sit with me during this time. After the small talk we had, the lady showed me around the area and where everything was. She also give me a pin number to enter the the staff room and a magnetic thing which allowed me to access parker pens for customers. After that i said goodbye to my mum and was left on my own to look around and get to know where things were. Next for half the time, by a male member of staff i was asked to stock up the shelfs with food items. After this i was taking to by a female member of staff to the stock room to put the packaging rubbish away and the left over food items. After that i walked around and delt with alot of customers and just tidying up the stationery area.
