Wow! What a great first day on the job. There is so much that you do. And man the time just flies. I worked an 8 1/2 hour day but it felt like a lot less. I got there at 10 am this morning and was given like a half hour introduction and was basically thrown right in. They have all sorts of ways of packaging and shipping medicines. The first job I did was to count the medicine and then package it in little boxes. Then the pharmacist checks it and puts it in the totes and the shipping guys come and take it away. The second job I did was put pills in these little containers and seal the backing in the "cookers". The cookers are machines that use extreme heat to adhese the backing on the containers. After that you apply the rx label and the pharmacist checks it. I also did stocking. And like I said in my previous post I get to wear jeans and t-shirts. AND the big thing is that I don't have to work every other weekend. I work 2 on and 2 off which means that I still get to do Children's Church! And their operating hours aren't 8-5 like I thought. You don't go home until the work is DONE. Which means I could end up working a 12 hour day if we are extremely busy. That's ok since I'll be getting paid for my regular hours and then overtime. I like the place and I feel like I belong there. Everyone is pretty nice and I don't feel out of place. I know it's only my first day, but I have a feeling I'm really going to like it. Thank you God! And thank you all for your prayers and support!
