We all have to start somewhere...
Today, I have started my first day of working with Mercedes Hong Kong. In fact, my first ever 'working for real' day after being graduated from my University degree. I might have some brief working experience in my past summer-time job(no 's' here, it was just the one!) but nonetheless, I am pretty much a blank A4 paper walking into the service centre quarter past eight this morning.
I arrived 15 minutes earlier than my normal working hours, but the service centre in Quarry Bay was already lively. Around 3-5 customers have already came in awaiting and being served, I dropped a message about the reason I came in then sat down and wait.
A few moments later I was seen by the managers. Some hand-shakes, name introducing and being showed around the office... then that's pretty much half of the morning gone. The rest of the morning I was introduced the working systems and procedures. It was quite some to take in, hopefully my notes will help me along.
After lunch, I decided to walk around the service building to get used to the working environment. After a few more names were introduced, I spent the rest of the day observing the working flow in the service centre, reading a few information hand-outs and the automotive dictionary to enrich my knowledge into servicing cars especially Mercedes models.
As the day went by I left the service centre and off to home. Knowing the brief concept of the work flow I reckon this is going to be tough, tedious and long days to come. Nonetheless, this will be a challenge for me and I like seeing challenges. It an invitation to show my weakness and build my strength.
