So today, I went to my first ever OJT interview. I was with my classmate, Leonard.
The start was awful. Thinking I was going to meet Leonard by 8:30 at Ayala Ave (MRT), I reached the North Ave Station by 7:40 and I thought I still had plenty of time. But by the time I got to the station, the line was long as hell. It was hard to buy a ticket, to wait for a train, and to ride the train because undisciplined people kept on sneaking in the line (and yeah I tried to bump some of them since I was pissed as fuck). At least I ended up getting a seat all the way from North Ave to Ayala though.
Reached our meeting place by 9 AM, and we went to Dusit Thani to ask where the shuttle to the company was. The MMDA guy told us to go up the MRT station (which is where we came from). Then when we got there, the security guard told us to go near Dusit Thani (WHERE WE CAME FROM). Good thing I asked the security guard if there was a way near the MRT station, and there was.
So we got to the shuttle service, got a free ride to the building, and arrived at the office by 9:50-ish….which meant we were late since we were supposed to be there by 9:30.
But anyways, we got separated from the rest and had our own exam (we’re cool that way I know). Afterwards, we had the initial interview WHICH I SURPRISINGLY LIKED BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE ANY BRAIN FART AT ALL. The HR told us that we’d be contacted for the next interview by this weekend or early next week. Funnily enough, she already called us when we were just at the shuttle service going back to the Ayala Ave MRT Station.
After going down the shuttle service and thanking the driver, we suddenly felt like fucking bosses for no logical reason… maybe just because the initial interview and the exam is done, and we had a free shuttle service.
We rode the MRT to Taft, transferred to the LRT1, went down to Tayuman and rode a jeep back to UST. All for an activity we had to pass (but hey, we were desperate since I
was am bound to fail that subject.)
It was a fun day. Tiring, but fun. Awwyisss.
