Bring baby powder ( if you hate fiberglass then this is good)
NO PHONE -CUSSING-
No such thing as a "pipe stretcher or shy hook"
No question is a dumb question

So, warden, how was your first week on the job? Do you think you found your calling? Anything the guys here can help you with?

Ask a lot of questions, and... MOVE WITH A SENSE OF URGENCY, ALWAYS! Always have your nose in a book, it will help you immensely. Good luck!!!

Lots of good points made about being a new hire, so here is another one (and a pet peeve with me). If you find yourself with NOTHING to do, then grab a broom, clean out the van, wash the van, check oil, check tires, check trans. fluid, check anti freeze....in other words DO SOMETHING BESIDES STAND AROUND WITH YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS!!!!! Any person who stands around with their hands in their pockets "seems" to not be doing anything at all, and must REALLY BE LOOKING FORWARD TO STANDING IN THE UN-EMPLOYMENT LINE!!!! Ever notice how the poor souls in the un-employment line stand with their hands in their pockets?? Think I'm kidding, well come to work for us and stand out in the parking lot till 15-20 minutes after starting time WITH YOUR HANDS IN YOUR JEAN POCKETS!!!
Oh...oh...wait I've got another one....show up for work with your jeans sagging around your knees and not wearing a belt.....and half of your underwear showing....oh man will THAT get me lit up!!! I could go on, but you kinda get the drift.....right? Nose and lip piercings....oh boy...

Show up 15 minutes early and be the last guy to pack up your tools everday.
Make a habit of it.
Keep moving. Ask questions. Be dependable. Dont call in sick for at least the first 6 months and after that only do it ONLY if you're suffering from the deadly virus Ebola.
A little sniffle or cold go in. Make them send you home.
Accept that life is work PERIOD. Accept it, own it. and embrace it. You work hard and keep your nose clean you'll be succesful.
Thats part of " the talk" I gave my oldest when he got his first job. He's in the Navy now serving as a MP.
