Well I started my new job on Tuesday. Wow, I had no idea there was so much going on at Wal-Mart. So I officially begin "training" on Monday, with only 3 days of official training myself, I am kind of sorry for my first few classes, they are innocent people who have no idea what they are getting into. Initially they told me to expect to have a trainer for myself for a few weeks, I would do some portions of the training and then work on the massive amount of paperwork Wal-Mart has. Seriously there is a lot of paperwork. Because they work with every single government work related program teh paperwork is almost daunting. So yesterday we had a meeting with our regional HR Director (i think that is her title) and she informed me that my co-trainer from the North Logan Store should "phase out" and that she expected me to start training by myself. WHAT???!!! It was all I could do to keep my composure while she was there. She left and then I had to take a break so that the store manager did not see me freak out. I hadn't been through a single training yet, I keep getting pulled out for this meeting or this conference call, so honestly I hadn't finished orientation, but I am expected to do 3 classes next week.
So today and tomorrow is spent trying to calm myself. It will all work out. Worst case sceniorio is that I read from the training manuel word for word and sound like Ben Stein. If that is the worst I can do I am sure I can manage, but it is just daunting.
The schedule we have to hire and train between now and June 11 (I think that is the date) is very aggressive and I will be very very busy.
Have a nice weekend.
