This is a question Work Experience

We've got a work experience kid in for a couple of weeks and he'll do anything you tell him to... He's was in the server room most of yesterday monitoring the network activity lights - he almost missed his lunch till we took pity on him.

We are bastards.

How bad was your first experience of work?

Crap work Experience
I was working at a computing firm that build the computers from the components they ordered. I worked 9am-4pm

I was in the "workshop" with a grumpy old man named Steve who sat on the internet all day. I went in the first day and all I did was put 12 computers in boxes. Second day, I actually built the rest for the batch, I built the remaining 7 in the morning(which was pretty quick), then the afternoon came, I did nothing. 3rd day, No work left , The parts that had supposedly been dispatched hadn't left the suppliers and wouldn't arrive until Friday. 4th day no work . Then Friday came, oh the joy , I did nothing again, the suppliers delivery van had broken down, I couldn't believe that a week of experience had only been 4 hours of work at the most.

The only thing I learned from this was that other people sit doing nothing while you do as little wrok as possible.
