Good Morning Folks

I will be starting a new job in an accounts office job in the next few days.

I will be given training for 1 or 2 days on their systems by another member of staff who already works there.

Apart from the usual thing of trying to impress the employer and making friends around the department, what else can you advice that I take into consideration?

I don't want to be overly friendly, (staff may become suspicious), and I don't want to be unfriendly either.

Apart from making sure I arrive at work in good time, take breaks/lunch at designated times, are there other things I need to take into consideration? What about the usual 'office politics'?

I know that other staff will probably be watching every move I make - particularly bring the 'new boy'.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Just go with the flow - there's usually novelty for the first week or so, but after that it's life as normal. We've just had someone new start in our department (only about a dozen people) and he's the first newcomer for a couple of years. Two weeks on and he's just another one of the team now.
