My first day was full of training, listening to welcoming words from some of the senior managers and watching several videos on a variety of topics. I received my new email address, my ID security badge, and was introduced to my benefits package. For lunch, I was treated to some of the best Thai food I've ever had and to a welcoming jolt of caffeine from Starbucks.
The office complex is pretty neat. It is actually a fairly new modern glass building that was constructed for a dot com start up before the company folded. On the first and third floors are the corporate offices for the credit union with the second floor being leased out to a software firm. My new office is complete with a full service, fully staffed cafeteria and a pool table.
