Third Entry

The attire of the company is informal attire in which employees wears a blue polo shirt or a blue collar shirt with the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) logo. I come to work wearing casual clothing such as a light sweater, jean, and sneakers. I wear a light sweater because the air conditioner is on for the machines that get overheated so fast. A typical day for an employee is to arrive at 9:00 am take care of anything or eat before 10 am because that the time we worked. Do work till 1 pm because this is the hour of lunch. We come eat in the pantry, eat outside or anywhere in the Printing and Mailing department as long as it cleaned up. Go back to work, at 2 pm follow by 5 pm to pack up and waited till for 5:15 pm to leave and go home.

Second Entry


The supervisor for the internship was Oscar Rivera; he is the manager of the Printing and Mailing Department. I emailed Oscar a week before he interviews me. The day of the interview he was sick so asked to have my interview reschedule the following day. The following day, I went and Oscar was there. He greeted me and began the interview. He asked me about the design I had done on my website and I answered him. Afterwards, he showed me around the department and meant with other employers. We got back to his office to speak about when I starts he said the following Monday June 20, 2016. Finally I questioned him about the internship such as:

How long is this internship? Summer ends

And ended with saying goodbyes and see you on Monday. I was happy about getting an internship for the Internship credit. I also met Kenneth from my Internship class in order to get his credit as well.
