Samantha Clayton – Apprentice

It’s now my 3rd week at Waller’s. For the first two weeks I was too tired to function let alone write a blog.

My first and second weeks were a bit of a blur, taking in the scenery, the people and getting to grips with the inner workings of the company.  My third week on the other hand has been a whole different story.

Rose is my main trainer and she has been so patient! It’s probably a good job too because some processes just haven’t gone in until she explained them 50 times and others she has said once and I’ve got it straight away. It’s strange how the brain works eh?

I have learnt lots of new office skills, such as answering the phone in the correct manner, preparing and sending out invoices, writing and following procedures, making labels, sending various emails in different communication formats, making Christmas event letters and started my college work. It doesn’t sound very interesting does it? But believe it or not some of this has been quite interesting as well as challenging!

My favourite job so far is invoicing, I like talking to new people when taking orders and I like the challenge, it is difficult to get your head round. It has been the hardest thing to learn but I didn’t give up and I’ve finally got there.

The people here at Waller Associates are very funny! Ro makes me laugh 100 times a day, Steve our managing director is very particular and likes to change everything and as for the men in the top offices! We will come to them on my next blog!

I generally do enjoy working at Waller world and I can’t believe it’s Friday! I’ve been here 3 weeks and I feel like I’ve been here forever!
