Have you seen my giveaway? If not click here!
Good afternoon! I was meant to write this blog post yesterday, but I was overly busy with the amount of training. The night before I had no sleep so I was extremely tired when I came home. Besides everyone needs a day off once in a while :).
Next week I’m going to create a banner for when and what I’m posting throughout the week!
What have you lovely people been up to today? I’ve been training, wish I was enjoying the weather; but I’m home now; sitting in the garden with peach ice tea writing this :).
If you are interested in hearing what my first day at training was like have a little read down below and enjoy! 😀

How was my first day?
BRILLIANT! I loved every single moment! I got to meet 14 lovely people; I love how EE hire the right people; everyone is different in their own way, it’s amazing to see people from all over the UK in one room mixing together and sharing their personal experiences in their life. Evidently we are all in the same boat and it’s extremely daunting at the beginning; just like everything new is! I would say that I’m still trying to unfold as I feel it will take a few days; but after that I will be completely comfortable.
In addition to this, my trainer is fantastic, he’s super funny and made everyone feel welcome! I love how he made everyone introduce themselves. He put us into pairs and told us to get to know our pair, when the time was up we had to introduce the person we had learnt about. For example, I met a lovely girl Nicole, I learnt interesting facts about her, I then gave feedback to the rest of my group, vice versa. On the other hand, in regards to activities we went over about the company as a whole, researched what they offered, the EE way, the policies, how to talk to customers etc.
In contrast to this, I want to tell you my first impression from when I entered the building. From the outside it looked futuristic, the glass building gave me the impression that important people worked there; as well as opulence. When I stepped foot in the building I was amazed, it looked so professional and clean; the crystal marble flooring added importance and interlinked with the whit and grey theme at the reception point. The staff were really lovely and catered to our needs; for example, when I needed to know where the canteen was they showed me instead of telling me where to go. On the other hand, when I came face to face with the training room it looked stunning! The entrance was fantastic! As you can see from the picture above it was bright and colourful, and also met the EE theme of aqua, yellow and grey. This told me that they cared about how their training room was presented, whereas other business don’t really mind what they look like.
All in all, my first day training there was perfect, they made the significant information easy to understand and remember. They even gave us notebooks to keep which I love! They are compact, which makes it easy to carry around; it’s just a nice incentive when you start your training; as a stationary lover this really made a good impression.
How did I get there?
Fundamentally, I don’t actually live far away from this facility, but EE still paid for my travel and hotel; which was perfect because I was able to take a break from home and enjoy myself. It’s only for 4 days so it’s not like it’s months or anything stupid. Everything is paid for, even my breakfast and dinner! Very kind of them! From the training building to the hotel they even provide us with prepaid taxi’s, we don’t have to worry about walking or arriving late; it’s all done for you.
How do I feel so far?
Positive and dying to know more! I want to know the inside and outs of new products, I understand that this takes time but I want to be the best I can possibly be. The training is a great insight to what my job is going to entail and how I can improve my skills over a course of months to represent EE in a great way; they are a great company and I want to do what’s right for them. They have given me the confidence to do well and succeed in my role. I am excited for what the rest of the week entails, I love getting involved, I just want to head to my store and help customers :). I also want to make some new friends when this ends, some people say that they will get into contact but they never do. It’s my goal to walk out with at least one new friend :).
This is the end of the blog post! Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed, I just wanted to bring you a little bit closer to my personal life and what I will be doing until Friday! I will keep you up to date with what I’m doing throughout the day on Twitter; if that’s something you want to see then give me a follow and I will follow you right back :).
I love you all so very much and I will see you tomorrow with a vegan recipe!
Like always lovely’s! Stay safe and stay tuned Little ones! 😀 x x x
