DISCLAIMER!* I got the approval of other founders to create this post, but if you try this at home, you could be caught and considered double jobbing! I never claimed pay, and never profited off this article via my alt account. In other words, do not try this at home!
*007 theme plays*
Hi I’m Lana, one of the founders at HDA! I am always interested in how things run in HDA, coming up with new ways of doing things, and I also run the blog! So why not combine all my passions, and discover what it is like to REALLY work at HDA, see if I can come up with any new ways of doing things, all the while seeing if our members really listen to us *thinking face emoji*
So I had a massive glow up and became…
Vivianne the recruit!
Yes, I grabbed one of my *many* alts and started double jobbing, with the founders blessing, so I could see what it was really like to work with us! I encountered a lot of LOVELY HDA members, and I was really pleased at how people treated me as an agent!
If you noticed in the image above, my motto is wrong, luckily when Ari said ‘capitalise the R’ i misunderstood him and thought he meant the SECOND R, he quickly explained:
Aribakunx3 helped me join as a recruit, he was helpful, but could have said please once or twice.
Suhboi trained me, he was very good! But got F&C wrong YOU NEED TO SAY THE PERSONS USERNAME OK!!! (Spoiler alert, this becomes one of my many gripes during the course of my undercover mission!)
Suhboi did really well though, he even answered my dumb questions welll, was patient and polite and even tho i was intentionally acting like a bit of a noob, he handled me well, including my jokes, when i asked where the help desk was:
He did not find my jokes funny, and tbh I don't blame him.
Finally it was time to FTF, after getting my fresh to death motto, being let into sec and ready to face the front desks, I was greeted WITH MY FIRST TROLL! I didn’t get many SS but here is how the interaction went:
Me to troll: why do you want to get in? U will just be kicked again
Troll: babe just let me in we can work out a deal, convince them to keep me in
Me: why do you want this attention? did your mum not love you?
*me expecting base to go wild with my sick burn, then remembering i’m just an agent that nobody will notice anyway*
shoutout to golgivesicle who was basically the only person that helped me know what to do in this confusing situation(troll can be seen negotiating with me in the ss below as well):
Tyler_swet promoted me first YAYYY!! And he corrected the 1 in my motto that had been sitting there for over 15 minutes OMGG MY HERO!
I promoted myself.
Yes. I self promoted. *other founders if you are reading this pls don’t demote me*
I had to only cause 1 minute had passed since i was due for one and nobody else was looking like they were going to promote me. And I had to pee. I’m now an Agent III and v excited about my progress, but sitting at FTF is boring as batshit and idc who knows it!!!!!
Sonyteo yelled at me for idling at the front desks, but the only reason i was sleeping is BECAUSE IT WAS ALMOST 15 MINUTES AND I HADN’T BEEN PROMOTED BUT HE WAS SITTING THERE WITH HIS MATES CHATTING AWAY IGNORING ME, i responded obviously v charming:
He did the right thing not promoting me there and then when i asked for it, but if you are going to enforce the rules while you are slacking off, you’re gonna look like an asshole, that is just one of the rules of life ok?
He promoted me two minutes after that convo took place, thanks Sony!
ANIMAXMubin promoted me after that, and he basically promoted me after i was idling at the desk again so good work guys
Marcus472 called me to F&C but then left straight away, i asked the question ‘what if i was called to F&C and then they leave, am i automatically AE?’ nobody answered so i stood next to my seat for 5 minutes to see if anyone cared why i was standing next to my seat, they didn’t.
He came back and asked me to F&C again, without saying my username :(
If you are reading this far and haven't seen your username, CONGRATS! But beware, I have at least two more posts covering my undercover antics, next time, ADVERTISING TRAINING!!!!
