I'm Alan Grogan a fourth year student from Gaelcholaiste in Carlow.
I'm Spending my first week of work experience with MicksGarage.com.Monday: On Monday morning I woke up at 6:30 to catch the 7:40 train. I'm
living with my brother Paul in Sallins. I arrived at Park West Train Station and made my way to MicksGarage HQ. When I arrived I was a bit early and I pressed the bell and was meet by Michele and he brought me into customer service to wait for Rob who I was in contact with in relation with the work experience. When Rob Arrived he brought me up to Gillian Who works In The Human Resources side of the company. Gillian took me around the place introducing me to everyone.I felt like the pope shaking everybody's hand and everyone was so nice and made me feel so welcome.
At MickGarage.com it has a very relaxed mood to the place which is key and keeps the stress levels down.So I spent the rest of Monday in with Gillian Scanning and Sorting Invoices.
And I Left at 5:30 to catch the 6:00 Train Back to Sallins.
Tuesday: Tuesday I spent the day down in the warehouse with Danny And the lads
My Job was packaging all the products that are bought on the internet.
In Total I packaged 126 products and thought that I did really well but the lads were at 300, but wasn't bad for My first go.
Wednesday: Wednesday was with Gilllian Sorting and Scanning Invoices and I got a real insight
into the behind the scenes work that Ciaran, Mick, Gillian and everyone at MicksGarage.com does
to deliver Their products on time and up to high quality
Thursday: Thursday I spent the day with Rob and the guys at Marketing. Rob showed me the Facebook account and inputting pictures of cars into the website and research.
Friday: Friday I spent finding out what all the guys were doing in the marketing department .I looked at stock management, Design and Ebay, Amazon.At 4 we had a quiz which Lisa set up it, Dingbats were the chosen subject and I'm delighted to announce the Junior Winner was Myself.
