I start my first job tomorrow.

I got a job!!!!
I work at a coffee shop, making coffee and pastries and everything else that relates to cafes.
But, it's my first ever job and I'm sooooooo nervous that I'll fuck up or that i won't be able to handle it.
Any pointers on how to get over my pre-job jitters?

It's natural to be nervous, but I'll tell you, that's a nice first job to have.

Good luck!

If you go into it with the attitude that you aren't going to take any shit from anybody, you'll do fiine.

Make sure you know where the bathroom is.

Don't rush, it's your first day. Do the best you can and never be shy about asking a question. (This is harder to do that one realizes).

Good luck!

Good Luck!

Be nice to everyone and don't get into any shop politics.
Look customers in the eye and smile and speak clearly.
Ask the manager or the trainer how you are doing, once in a while.
If it is slow, ask what else you can do to keep busy.

OK, that should do it!

Let us know how it goes!!

congrats, girl!

My advice is to take it slow and don't panic if it gets too busy. don't expect to pick up everything the first day. and most importantly don't be anybody's doormat. if you start out that way, people will expect you to stay that way.

I'm sure you'll do well

Take your job seriously but have fun with and BE YOURSELF. That is what I tell my new employees that have not worked before.

Be willing to want to know everything you will be just fine.
