Re: Good first impression

Be on time and nice and clean, theres nothing worse than waiting for people or travailing in a motor with some one who need a good wash.

As said, on time (10 mins early), presentable, with lunch so no shop stops, and a smile on your face (I hate grumpy workers in the morning, puts a strain on the day before its started!)
Well done and good luck

Re: Good first impression

Don't just hang up your gear at the end of the day. Grab a rake or blower, even help out on the chipper.

As a groundie I feel there is nothing worse I hate than a climber chucking there gear in the truck and thinking they are done for the day.

Re: Good first impression

As said, be on time don't stand about with your hands in our pockets and stay off the phone, a packet of biscuits (ones with wrappers not rich tea) to hand out will help you "bond" at break

Good luck

Re: Good first impression

Be appreciative of everything, have good manners and be polite.
Treat others like you would like to be treated yourself .
The others have covered it.

Oh and enjoy it and stay safe.
