First Day on the Job

Well, the first day went pretty well. Although when I left today, I still do not have a working telephone at my desk, no computer, and no security badge to get in and out of the building.
My manager, Terry, took my around to meet everyone when I got there this morning. I'm bad at remembering names, so I'm sure it'll take me a while to remember who they are and what they do. I spent most of the day with Regina, who is responsible for handling the Accounts Receivable for the client that I have been assigned to analyst his reports. It looks like I'll be shadowing her for the next 30 days learning what I can about those accounts.
All in all, it was a pretty good day. I was a little miffed that the management team didnt take me out to lunch so that I could meet everyone, but every company has its culture. At Wyndham CRO, we made it a point to take all new management team members out to lunch on their first day so that they could interact with the team outside of a work environment.

I do know that I HATE where I am currently sitting. I am in a cube, closest to the inside walkway. Across from the walkway is the Senior VP that wasnt 100% on board with hiring me in the first place.
Also, the girl sitting in the cube beside me is one of those women who constantly applies hand lotion. I cant stand the smell of it.

Everyone seems to be friendly though, so I think I'm going to like it there
