    I start my new job tomorrow. I am more excited than anything but still a little nervous.

    I worked at a place for 16 years - started there almost right out of high school. I spend the last 10 years or so working in our public warehouse. Our biggest customer left just about a year ago. Benifits at our company were slipping, not to mention the 45 minute drive every day. So oppertunity came knocking - and I answered. I am going to work for that customer that left the warehouse :)

    I have a huge advantage. I know almost all the people that work there, I know many of their customers from when they had product at our warehouse, and I have some experience with their product. I am super excited.

    The only negative is coming from working in a warehouse, I wore work shoes, jeans, and what ever type of shirt I wanted. The new place is Business Casual. So although I know they stress the casual part - no jeans.

    Wish me luck! I start tomorrow :)

    Congratulations on your new job! :!: !

    It sounds like you have a lot of assets already for the company, don't worry about the clothes bit. You'd be surprised how people really dress.

    You'll do fine! My prayers are with you!

    Just enjoy your new job and be your true self and you'll be fine!

    Again, Congratulations and Good Luck!

    When I went from casual to business casual, I shopped Goodwill. They actually had a good selection in large sizes (18-22). No one at work knew unless I told them. That way I could use clothing money for shoes and other items that I won't buy used. Congrats on the new job. Now if I could just find one.

    Me too! I have a tan-black-brown wardrobe for work, and seldom buy anything that I can't use for two of them. It cuts down on laundry and, not being a morning person, makes mornings easier. Sounds like a great job match, doesn't it? Congrats!!!
