The first half of our day of training included a visit from the hotel GM then the history of the hotel and its management group.
Then the fun began with uniform fittings. Our uniforms are different based on our department. Eric is working in the front lobby with me. Kelly is working in room service & the executive lounge and Ryan is working in the upscale restaurant. I’m a small American but I’m a huge Asian! The lady in the Uniform center looked me up and down and pulled some jackets and pants for me. HA! I felt like Chris Farley in “Tommy Boy”…fat guy in a little coat. Then the pants were capri pants, not a good look.
After being fitted we met with our department head and our supervisors and found out more about what we would be doing. Our supervisor seems really nice and he told Eric and I that we would have Saturday and Sunday off of work. (Kelly & Ryan do not know their off days yet). After talking with him a bit, we went to dinner at the canteen but missed the meal so we caught the shuttle to Myeongdong to grab some dinner. Once again, Kelly and I went for the most American thing we could find, pizza. But this pizza was a bit different with unique toppings and the crust was stuffed with potatoes. We then went out and found work shoes for Kelly and we bought red shirts to wear for Thursday for the South Korea v. Argentina game on Thursday. Then we caught the shuttle home to call it a night and see if we can catch our friends at home before they went off to work.
