By Dolphin111 ·
Hey everyone,
I would like to get some advice, i'm about to get a new job as IT Support at a big company, i would like to find out, what are the things i should have in mind or prepare myself for the first days at work? I will be going for the second Interview with the HR after being on the first one with the company's IT pro.
Please give me any insight on this issue.

Try to learn the basics on any "custom" makes trouble shooting easier.
Some users think they NEED admin rights....don't give it to them.
Don't fall into the "gossip trap" have access to very private info about everyone & they know it!
Did I say network printers are evil?
Take ANY & ALL training they offer!!
