Asian Adventure Essay, Research Paper Great, I think to myself as I stare into the bathroom mirror, another long day at the stinking T.V. factory. As I rush down the stairs to the street I bump into Ms. Chong, my neighbor from across the hall. She asks me if I would like to eat some fish and rice later, but I decline, as I may be working late. I hurry to the station and jump on the crowded train and ride it towards the factory. Luckily I make it to work on time and change into my work uniform. My job at the television plant is to pour the foam packing peanuts into the shipping boxes after the finished televisions are put into them. My job is pretty monotonous, but I like it because I sometimes shoot my co-workers with the foam peanuts that come out of the hose. Everyone

always gets mad at me because they think I’m a slacker. They just don’t know how to have fun. My boss, Mr. Wong is a real piece of work. He is always on our backs about productivity, and he is always comparing us to other factories, telling us how unproductive we are compared to them. I think I’m the only one who ever complains about the guy. Everyone else acts like Mr. Wong is a super great guy; I think they are all a bunch of brown nosers. As the months roll by, my job becomes more and more boring. Rumors begin to spread throughout the factory. Rumors that our plant is going to be closed down and sold to another company. It is more than likely that if our plant is sold my co-workers and I will be replaced, and we will be out of a job. So I begin to search the city for a

new job. Just in case my old one ends. I am able to find many jobs in the fishing industry. These jobs don’t appeal to me because the smell is bad, and the pay is low. Finally I am able to find a position as a mailroom clerk in a computer company. Sure enough five months later my television factory is sold and all the workers are replaced, including me. Luckily for me I am able to get the job in the mailroom at the computer company. The name of the company is Wang Global. Wang Global builds computer boards for cash registers. It also buys integrated circuit technology from other companies and modifies it, then resells it. I like the people at Wang much better than the people at the television factory. I also like my mailroom job much better. All I have to do is put incoming

mail from giant bins into slots that corresponded to certain people and offices in the building. The job isn’t as easy, but it pays more, and I don’t feel as dumb as I did as a foam peanut packer. After about a year of being a mailroom clerk my manager notices I am doing a very excellent job. My manager suggests to our supervisor that I be moved onto the assembly line. The supervisor agrees and I am placed in a two-month class on computer board assembly. I am taught exactly what I need to know for my new assembly line job. My job on the line is to make three solders on a small computer board. The job sounds easy enough, but I quickly learn that it isn’t. On the line I am given only a small amount of time to make the solders on each board. If I do not complete the solders in

the given amount of time I receive a demerit. I am informed that if I receive a certain amount of demerits my pay will be cut, and if the demerits continue I would eventually lose my job. My pay is now three times what it was in the mailroom. My responsibility is also three times as much as it was in the mailroom. There are three people down the assembly line who depend on me making the solders correctly. It takes a couple of months to get used to the pressure that is on me when working on the assembly line. Just when I start to get used to my new job, I receive some good and bad news. The good news is that my supervisor has been keeping his eye on my production and me and likes what he sees. He tells me that the enthusiasm I show in my work could really make Wang Global some
