3 Be On Time, Coming and Going
Don’t cheat the boss or company by coming in late, taking long lunches or leaving early Never think the boss won’t notice - they do & will remember this the next time you ask for a raise

4 If You Can’t Come To Work, Call The Boss
No business can operate without workers Do your best to be at work when scheduled or offer to get someone to cover your shift

5 Do The Work That Has To Be Done
Every job will have parts that are no fun Remember, the work has to be finished and you have been paid to do the work!

It happens to everybody - the boss may ask you to do something you do not think you were hired to do Don’t argue about it, just do it as well as you can After all, you might learn something
