Try Not to Fall, Easiway Team!

What happens when Easiway’s whole team member meet up in one place? We all go hiking! Not just any hiking: the near-death-experience kind!

This is a photo of us before we knew what we’re getting ourselves into. Look at us! Happy as a clam.

The sun, the hike? Not a problem! ...or we thought so...

The sun, the hike? Not a problem! …or we thought so…

Then we hit a downfall. We thought our guide was joking when he asked us to go down this steep slope with only branches to hold on to.

The great downfall

There was a lot of screaming.

We thought he was joking again when he asked us to climb this.

The climb

Rina ninja-ing her way up.

Only when we thought it was easy from now on, we had to go through this.

Holy cow!!! I’m high.

Of course, it’s the only way home.

Only if my legs were longer…

We stared at the sea that followed us and hoped that a boat would save us.

Come to us, boat!

But it only told us  to “Dream on.”

I've never seen so many rocks in my life.

Aaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, the walk goes on.

Even during this madness, being the positive people that we are, we took some time to appreciate the view! Have to say, we are dreamers.

Beautiful

Beautiful

I wonder where this sea takes us to

I wonder where this sea takes us to.

Summer time!

Summer time!

Yes, we almost died due to the heat, but the view from the top was breath taking.

Mother nature

We love you, mother nature!

My favorite shot of the day!

My favorite shot of the day!

Easiway team!

That victory shot when you’re at the top!

It was harder than we expected. Yes, there was a lot of sweat. But I love how the team helped each other to the end. No one was left behind. Everyone was incredibly patient. It was a team building exercise and the task really worked. Lesson learned: LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND!

Is working at a startup as my first job a good idea?-‘Abosolutely’- Part 2

By Jonathan Kos-Read

No one can answer that question for you, but you can always take people’s different view on it into consideration.

The next post is written by our staff from the CS team. This company is her first and she says “Absolutely!”

The previous post was written by our staff from the marketing team. easi6 Limited is not the first company she worked for and her answer is closer to a “No.”

Note that this post will be helpful for commerce students new seeking opportunities.

Absolutely!
Creating a new culture in a company brings me a great sense of accomplishment. The company and I are both at the starting line. We are growing and making a new culture together so this company means a lot to me. This connect I have with this company helps it grow strong bringing change.

Just out of college, my mind is fresh and unbiased and everyone expects new idea from me. I am passionate and love facing new challenges. Many say it will be hard because I have no experience, but this is actually a great motivation to learn and I can test out what I learned right away. I feel like everything I do is not only for the company, but also for ME. And, I really like that.

Startup is where people of various background come together to help each other out. I don’t have experience, but my co-worker does so he helps me. A lot, actually. In return, I know how to communicate online to garner social media attention. It’s just the start for me, but this company gives me great responsibility which really makes me think I am really doing something.

People ask me why I joined a startup as my first job. Honestly, I do not know what the difference between a startup and a big corporate is. You chose a company if you believe in their product and value. I believe in Easiway because it makes it easier for commuters between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. My confidence in this business acts as a rock even when things get shaky.

I love what I do and that’s the most important part of a job.

How do you get your visa issued when visiting China?

City of Shenzhen

City of Shenzhen

 

Some nationalities, like South Koreans, are required with visa to enter China. Be sure to get your visa issued from verified and widely-used agencies, especially if you’re getting group/paper visa.

It was a late Friday night when a Korean customer called us for help on her way from Shenzhen to Hong Kong in our Easiway van. Shenzhen’s custom office had asked our customer to get off the vehicle at the border. It was unexpected because Easiway vans allow passengers with visa to get custom checks without having to get off. She had entered Shenzhen from Hong Kong with a group/paper visa earlier that day.

It turned out that the agency that issued the visa was not listed in the custom office’s system. Eventually, she had to wait until the custom office staff was able to reach someone from the agency. This took a lot of her time. She even missed her ferry to Macau from Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal. So we had to help her communicate with a cab driver to take her to a different terminal. It surely was a looooooong day for her.

Dodge this hassle by getting visa to China issued from an agency that is widely-used and make sure it will take full responsibility that such problem will not occur. Getting visa from travel agencies can be another good choice.
