Personal Narrative: My First Day At Penn Machine

Decent Essays
My first day at Penn Machine, I learned quite a lot. I had learned that I will be going to the Johnstown location as well as the Blairsville location. My first day I went to the Johnstown location. I went around all the offices and down around the factory and met all the employees. After that my supervisor showed me how all the IP addresses work with all the devices in the company, then he showed me logon scripts. This was really all new to me. I am more of a visual person, so in school we really do not get a lot of hands on, so working with IP addresses and with the server itself its really my weakness. My supervisor said later on we will have me set up a server and some IP addresses and get a feel how to really work with it. A couple days …show more content…
We had to go around and see what we could use there (kiosks, handhelds, tablets, etc.) after we did that we then sat in a meeting with him going over what he thinks would be a good idea, he also asks the accounting and that what they would like to see change or make their life easier. With that information he could suggest certain modules and how they would work. After that was all sorting out the management could take the information they had and put it together, which now including me to go around each building and look exactly where things should be and what would be the best thing to do. After doing this, I got tons of papers on devices and their prices and had to go through them to see what the best selection and what’s the cheapest. Throughout my experience thus far, I have learned a lot about the IT management and IT accounting side of things. I have learned that you need to dumb things down to a CEO and that so they have better understanding exactly what it is you’re doing and is it beneficial and how much does it cost, and is there a difference between the cheaper route and the more expensive route. I really have not had a day that I really hated. I like the experience I am

    I had assumed that the class would teach students how to operate the computer. Within the first week of class, I found out how wrong I was. The class taught students how to perform tasks such as store information and format documents and work with various office/productivity programs. Knowledge of working with computers was apparently a prerequisite. With my limited knowledge with computers, I initially struggled in that class.…

    We had a one day training in the computer lab of our school. The air conditioning was not working so we had to try to learn this program in a 90 degree building. Although, the program looked exciting, no one was able to pay attention. We were trained in two hours on a program that I am sure should take days. The program allows teachers to find quizzes or assignments from other teachers and use them in their classrooms.…

    I am aware many companies spend millions of dollars on advertising to influence consumers. This has become standard procedure for most companies. I prefer to trust the word of mouth of family and friends to advertising or blogs. I usually have the same expectations and expect the same quality as they would. The reason I do not put much emphasis on blogs and the advertised information is the fact that most people are paid for their opinion.…

    Before, I had never been required to really work as a team, since the two most extroverted people do the whole group assignment each time at school. This time, however, was different. We each had our own ideas. This forced us to compromise and work together to bring our ideas to life. For example, I knew how to code well and could find ways to do just about anything, but I could not design a color scheme for our website to save my life.…

    This job started when I built my first computer. To build a computer, I first had to understand what all goes into a computer and what is most important for each computer task. For example, if you are running a headless server, like I was, a graphics card is not too important, or even necessary. A few years after I built my server, I decided I wanted to build my own personal computer. During a free day in Spanish II, we had a substitute, I started browsing online computer hardware stores and forums.…

    I’ve only done two; one for my current restaurant job and the interview for LEADs. Both were very nerve racking and I knew very little about what to expect. Luckily, both ended up going well enough, but I could have really used the tips provided by Creed. Especially during my first ever interview with the store I am currently working at; I felt very unprepared for the questions that were asked and how to even do something as simple as give an example. I do remember that for my job interview, the manager I was interviewing with did ask very similar questions to what Creed said would be asked.…
