Tuesday: Today is the day we’re to relocate to a different training room close to our cubicles. Looking at the photo below (from Google Earth), the training room was at the red arrow. As a reminder, you can see how huge this place is based on the size of the cars in the lot. Anyway… we’re moving to the green arrow from the red arrow. I decided I’d park at the green arrow and walk to the red one so that at the end of the day, after we moved, I’d be quick to get to my car. I got soooo lost this morning. Eventually I went down to the first floor where the cafeteria is so that I could get my location figured out. I found the cafeteria and used that to get to the green arrow. Oy. Naturally, after the move I’ll park at the green arrow area all the time.
We arrived at the new classroom. We were all quick to figure out our cubicles. We were split into teams. My opposing team supervisor put her employees names on assigned desks, ours did not (he wasn’t in till noon). We were told to pick desks in a specific area. No cubicles. I was bummed. It wasn’t very private feeling. It didn’t feel like an office to me. Most of my team felt the same way. I promised myself to just deal with it and find the good in it. The good? A window very close by. Teammates/classmates that I like were beside and behind me. No cubicle walls to make us have to stand up to see one another.
A little later, once my supervisor was in, one of my teammates saw a large cubicle area empty and asked if we could move. He agreed, I was thrilled. I got a killer cubicle with 3 file cabinets that have 3 drawers in each. That’s 9 drawers in case you’re having problems with math. I have 3 open shelves and 1 with a door on it. The cubicles all have the same amount of desk space but are lacking some shelves or cabinets.
