My OJT Narrative Report

On-the-job training (OJT) is one of the best training methods because it is planned, organized, and
conducted at the employee's worksite. OJT will generally be the primary method used for broadening
employee skills and increasing productivity. It is particularly appropriate for developing proficiency skills
unique to an employee's job - especially jobs that are relatively easy to learn and require locally-owned
equipment and facilities. This is one method by which students is given a chance to apply the theories
and computations that they have learned from the school. It also helps the students to acquire relevant
knowledge and skills by performing in actual work setting. Colleges and universities require their
students to undergo such training within a specific number of hours as part of the curriculum.

My classmates Chriszel Joy Magsambol, Jasmin Santillan, Kristina Tamio, Jan Elvin Villarubia and I were
oriented by Maam Etzie the Human Resource Assistant last February 21, 2011. She gave us the map of
Bangko Mabuhay, the attendance report where we are going to log in and out, the date we are going to
start the training, and the department where we were assigned. She explained to us the rules and
regulation for the trainees such as to always follow the instructions of the superiors, the type of clothes
to wear and the different facilities that can be used by the trainees.

March 23, 2011 - Wednesday, was my first day as a trainee. On the way to the bank at Tanza, Cavite, I
was very nervous. Although I knew where I will be assigned and the name of my immediate superior, I
still do not have the idea how she looks like, her attitude and the duties that I will do with her.

I arrived early and I saw my classmates at the back of the bank where the employees enter. We logged
our time- in outside the Human Resource Department and went to our designated department. Chriszel
was assigned at the Information Technology Department but was later transferred to the Microfinance
Department; Jasmine was assigned at the Loans Department; Kristina was assigned at the Human
Resource Department; Elvin was assigned at the Customer Service; and I was assigned at the Executive
Office with Maam Maranatha Mara Bunda, the executive secretary.

When I entered the Executive Office, I greeted Maam Mara and Kuya Ichie, the janitor Good Morning
and introduced myself. Aside from the orientation made by Maam Etzie, Maam Mara oriented me on
what I am going to do and she toured me inside the Executive Office. She taught me how answer
telephone calls, how to transfer telephone calls to other department, and how to give fax tone to the
caller. Maam Mara told me that the General Manager Sir Edwin Fojas was out of town on two (2)
months vacation leave and the Compliance Officer Sir Basil Perea was on a seminar, but will be reporting
at the bank after two (2) days. I learned on that first day that I have to be very patient especially in
answering phone calls.

On the first week of my training, I always made mistake. I was confused and passed the caller on the
wrong department; sometimes I asked Maam Mara the local number on loans department even though
I had the map on my side where I can refer from every time there is a phone call; and there was a time
when I gave papers/documents to wrong department. I was so nervous because I knew that Maam
Mara was angry at that time. While waiting for the time out, I said Im sorry to Maam Mara for what I
have done earlier. I did not clearly hear the name that she told me and I did not asked it again before I
left the office. I was not yet familiar with the names of the employees/officers in the bank and their local
numbers. She forgave me and told me to look first at the map to be familiar with the local numbers. I
decided then to memorize the local numbers and names of the employees of Bangko Mabuhay so I no
longer made mistakes and no longer interrupt Maam Maras works.

As I promise to myself, I memorized all the names of employees and local numbers even their positions.
The day passed by, I no longer use the map.

There was also a time when the executive office had another on-the-job training (OJT) student. Maam
Mara told me to teach Ezperanza Ezpie Custodio, OMT student in PUP how to use the telephone and
how to transfer phone calls. I also toured her inside executive office to be familiarized with the room
and equipment.

Once when Maam Mara was on leave, Sir Basil taught me to use the computer and printed some files
for him. I typed the table of content of the documents. Sometimes other employees in the bank asked
me to scan documents and send them to the other branch of Bangko Mabuhay like Mamburao,
Occidental Mindoro, Naic, Cavite and Indang, Cavite.

When we were nothing to do in the office, Maam Mara told me to go to another department so that I
can learn from other employees. She will just call me if there will be some papers to be given to other

I was also assigned by Sir Basil to produce photocopies of some documents and type the name of the
bank on top portion. Although I did not know yet how to operate the copying machine and the
typewriter, I was able to accomplish the task through the help of my co- trainees.

I really enjoyed my on-the-job training at Bangko Mabuhay. I learned the basic office works, importance
of productivity, the operation of common office equipment and facilities, the standard office rules and
procedures and most of all the pleasant officers-employees relationships. All the good experiences,
knowledge, skills and camaraderies I acquired during my OJT at Bangko Mabuhay will be most cherished
and I am ready to put into practice once I graduated and then employed.

Acknowledgment is wholeheartedly extended to all employees of Bangko Mabuhay but most of all
to Maam Maranatha Mara Bunda, the Executive Secretary, my mentor.
