Work Experience

Our second work experience was from the 3rd to the 7th of April. I done my work experience was from the 12th to the 16th of April. I done my work experience in the Bank House B&B in Bundoran.

Day One – Wednesday

I went into the Bank House at 8:30am and I was greeted by Hannah, who I organised my work experience with over the phone. She brought me into the kitchen and introduced me to the other staff. I washed all the breakfast dishes and put them all away. At 11 o clock, Jade and I went upstairs to clean the rooms. We had five rooms to clean for the people checking in that evening. We stripped the beds, remade them and hoovered the carpets. We finished all the rooms at 2 o clock.

Day Two – Thursday

I went in again at 8:30am. I was greeted by the owner of the b&b, Diarmuid. Again, I washed the breakfast dishes and put them all away. At 9:30am, Jade and I went up and cleaned 8 rooms. We stripped the beds, remade them and hoovered the carpets. We were finished, again, at 2 o clock.

Day Three – Friday

Hannah told me I wasn’t needed on Friday and told me to come in at 8am on Saturday and Sunday as they would be very busy.

Day Four – Saturday

I came in at 8am and was greeted by Jade. I washed dishes until half eleven and went to clean rooms until two o clock.

Day Five – Sunday

Sunday was the busiest day of all of my week there. I cleaned dishes until 12 and finished at 2 o clock.

I really enjoyed my work experience here because it gave me work experience for if I wanted to get a job in a hotel.

Work Experience

Our first work experience was on the 13th to the 17th of February. I chose to go to the Bluestack Special Needs Foundation in Donegal Town as I have always had an interest in working with people with special needs.

Day One – Monday

I went to the centre at 09:15 and was greeted by the manager, Wendy. She sent me upstairs to work with another girl who was on work experience. We were building a database for the Bluestack Challenge from the year it started (2002) up until last year (2016). We finished one database the first day. I went home at 3pm.

Day Two – Tuesday

Again, I went to the centre at 09:15 and was sent upstairs to work on another database. I finished two databases that day and went home at 3pm.

Day Three – Wednesday

I done one database for phone numbers of community places in Donegal Town. I left at 12pm as I had no more work to do.

Day Four – Thursday

This was my last day in the centre and I finished all the databases.

I did not enjoy my work experience here as I was by myself in a room the whole week and did not get to interact with any kids.
