My first year at work was really hard and tough. I find myself “just working” and waiting for my salary every pay day. My daily routine at work is getting a cup of coffee after I logged in, sit down on my work station then check my voice mails, emails and spent eight to nine hours working in front of my computer. After my shift, I’ll just leave an instant message to my boss to say goodbye which is two meters away from me then go home. It was boring like no life at all, no mingling, no evidence of an internal social network. It took me a long time to figure out exactly what makes me motivated and happy at work then I realized that I should consider myself lucky landing a job with PC Mall when some people took a year to find a job unstressful as mine. Eventually after the acceptance I begin to appreciate the generosity of the company, I now enjoyed my job, and I appreciate the people around me. I became contented and satisfied with everything. What makes me keep my job is not only about the money or a challenging work environment. It’s not about the opportunities for moving forward in my career. It is about the people that I work with that makes me stay with the company. When we have connections at work as powerful as it is to have a Facebook and Twitter following accounts where you can feel real people around you, I believe that is a good sign to keep your job as well.  So, I want you to meet The Center of Order Management – Returns Team, my second family.

My home is not a place, it is the people!

I love my team. I’ve been on this team for over 2 years now and they’ve been there for me through thick and thin and I know I can always count on them to put a smile on my face. We talk to each other whenever we can, we share endless laughs, and we stick up for each other no matter what. I met some of my good friends on this team as well. This team plays a major role in my life, and I honestly don’t know where I would be standing without them.We’ve all grown from complete strangers, to a close-knit family 🙂

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle.  As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.“ ~ Steve Jobs

      Thank you so much for always reading my post! I’m also blessed that someone like you appreciate everything I write in here and I hope someday, I could meet you personally.

      Yes, I’m lucky to have these amazing team. I believe, I’m one of the few who are blessed to have professional and understanding co-workers. There maybe too little yet tolerable conflicts or misunderstanding at work but at the end of day, we make sure everything is settled. Very typical family set up and that makes my work easier everyday 🙂
