Finally Done With Training!

Finally after 6 days of training at Pop Century, I have "Earned my Ears"! Which pretty much only means that I get to take the little red ribbon off my name tag and that I am now expected to know everything about everything!

I really like working at front desk. I think the management team at Pop is great as well. I need to brush up on my Spanish speaking skills because a lot of people speak very little English. For check ins I can give the basic questions, explain that the Key cards are the room key and the park tickets. Give basic directions to the building they are in. And even very basically explain the dining plan! (Which is really a lot of information if you think about it) The only problem is that if the guest starts to ask some follow up questions I get confused and then I need to call the Spanish Operator on the phone for assistance. I think as time goes on I will be able to do my basic spiel in Spanish as well as I can in English.

I have today, Tuesday and Wednesday off. Today I had my Human Resource Management Class and tomorrow is my first day of Exploring Guest Service class. Wednesday I don't have any classes but they gave me off anyway. I'm working Thurs, Fri and Sat the rest of the week and my shifts are all in the afternoon/evening! No more early morning shifts for me! Or at least for this week.

Next week BJ is coming to visit me for our anniversary and before he leaves for Basic Training. He is coming on Sunday and will stay until Thursday. We are staying at Pop Century so I asked one of the ladies in the back office if she could get us one of the new refurbished rooms! I am supposed to have those days off, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.


  1. have they still only refurbed the 70's building??

    Congrats on finishing training! I'll look for you in 20 days. Were staying at pop for the first time!

  2. Kateeee I miss you so much. I love reading this because I can just picture your reactions during every single moment you write about, I can almost hear your voice trying to be quiet and polite but still booming.

    When I read all the mishaps about your doctors orders I just shook my head because I can't imagine the unruly hell you unleashed and that your mom and bj had to listen to.

    I can't believe Bj has basic training already, it feels like two days ago that you were talking to me about him thinking about enrolling.

    sorry this is really long but I just caught up on all of and I miss you bunches, I'm really glad everything is working out for you even though you had to leave me.

    I love you!


    ps you know I crackeddd up at the costumes, girl I know I did not teach you to dress like that!

  3. Your blog is so informative! Thank you. :)
