Someone gave our summer intern the login to our blog. Boy are we ever in trouble…
Yesterday was a throwback to my childhood. It was field trip day at Moncur, and this intern was going to a Tigers Game. I’m a football fan by nature, but it was sunny and 75, the perfect day for some baseball. I had the biggest smile on my face as I drove towards the city. I couldn’t help but think: “How is this my job?”
As we walked towards our meeting point at the front gates of Comerica Park, my excitement level went through the roof. You know that feeling you get when you walk up to your friends and everyone is happy to see you, and you’re just as happy to see them? It was kind of like that.
My day was filled with hot dogs, chips, pop, nachos, ice cream and bizarre looks as Claire (our newest Social Media Coordinator) and I stuffed food into our faces as we walked throughout the stadium. But I think my favorite part of the day was getting to interact with everyone. I really enjoyed getting to talk with David, Heather and Andy and well, just about everyone that isn’t part of my department. I think that says a lot about this place. We all have our jobs and titles, but we can all come together and it’s just like hanging out with your friends. It’s why I like it here so much; you can tell that everyone genuinely cares about everyone else.
I think people often underestimate the importance of workplace culture. Spending the day team bonding at the Tigers game was a perfect demonstration of how Moncur exudes excellence. We bonded together beautifully.
Three selfies, seven snapchats and one photo with a small child dressed as player later, the game was over and our outing had come to an end. The entire time we were there, Claire and I kept musing over how we couldn’t believe this was our job. We both agreed that this is what it’s like when you love your job. We have fun and we enjoy what we do, whether it’s social media or spending a day watching the game.
I’m not sure what else is in store summer, but I’m definitely looking forward to it!
Until next time…
