Get Onboard!

Are you ready for your first day?

Below are some questions you may need to ask your supervisor before you report to work:

  • What’s the office phone number?
  • What’s your (supervisor’s) cell number? Is it okay to send a text message?
  • Where should I park?
  • What time should I arrive?
  • What number should I call if I have an emergency or am running late on my first day?
  • Where should I report on my first day?
  • What door should I enter?
  • Who will meet me? What’s their cell phone number?
  • What should I wear on my first day?
  • What is the dress code for my job?
  • Is there anything else I need to bring with me on my first day?
  • What is my schedule for my first day/week?
  • How much time do I have for lunch?
  • Is there a designated area to eat lunch?
  • Do I have access to a refrigerator?
  • Where do you recommend eating on campus? Can I pay with my credit card?
  • Anything I need to know about my job/team before my first day?  

If you don’t know the answers to some of these questions, want to verify your answers, or have other questions, reach out to your supervisor as soon as possible so that your first day is as awesome as you are!
