    Hey guys
    So tomorrow is my first day at work and as I am only 16 this is my first ever job. I feel a bit anxious about the job, and would like to know your first job stories so that I get a feel for what I’m in for tomorrow
    Thank you ☺️

    Sorry it's late I assume you're already at work or done your shift!

    To answer your question, my first job was at a clothing store and I was 16. I was really nervous because I was the "new one" but there were 2 other girls also starting so I wasn't totally alone. We got a tour of the stockroom, staffroom and shop floor, shown how to do things and where things go. Then we were left to it really. Everyone was really friendly and kept checking in on me every 45 minutes to an hour to make sure I was alright and if I had any questions. I quickly got settled in. I was there for 15 months before I left.

    Aw I was the only one in from the new people so it was quite nerve wracking and I also am working in a clothing retailer. I caught onto what I had to do really fast and just asked for assistance when I needed it but thanks for replying back !
