Hey just a brief update

Sorry haven't updated in a while.  Life has been really crazy.  (well work and trying to sleep has been crazy).

I think I gave an update before that 3 people where starting.  So I was training 2 for 3rd shift and one was being trained for 2nd shift.  The 2nd shift person did not work out so they took one that I was training and put them on 2nd.   Then the process began again to find a new person.  So I continued to try and train the new person for 3rd shift.  It is hard training her.  When I show her something, she responds back with " I understand", or " I get it".  SO I am not sure if she really knows it or not.  (plus it is hard  to train on 3rd shift, the first week or two everyone is falling asleep while being trained just getting used to the hours).   Now they found another person for 3rd shift and I started the process all over again.  So no computer at work for me, then when I am home it is trying to get my kids back and forth to work and school.  Then fit sleep in.  So I don't have a lot of extra time to myself.

That being said this past weekend I had a wedding, and my Daughter graduates from High School on Sunday.  (very proud of her)!!  So next weekend is her graduation party.  So I will have to clean, and prepare for the party.  

So unless I get a free moment in the next week or so I won't be posting again.  When I do I have lots of books to post, since I still have to post about the book I read in March.

proud mama!

training people must be a pain, but also good feeling? like you must do a pretty ok job if they have you training people.

Not sure if I do a pretty good job or because I'm the only one on 3rd and I am training them for the shift.

Yes I am very proud of my daughter. It was a very nice ceremony. I was grinning from ear to ear.

I've had that experience of someone saying they understood and then showing very clearly that they didn't. I think it's important to tell the trainee, please let me know if there's anything you don't understand. If you tell me you do, and you aren't able to do the job later, that just makes it more frustrating for everyone. Remind them you're trying to help them succeed at their job.

Once I was training this guy, and he kept saying "That's self-explanatory." This guy was the worst person who ever did that job.

It has become more of an issue now. The boss told her to take over the shift while I trained a new person. Then when she was on the phone she was kinda of bossy I guess to me (which I have gotten used to. I think it is just her personality). Well she struck a cord with my boss who had a very long meeting with her. Once the meeting was over she was asking a few more questions, and wanting to be more like a team player.

We'll have to see how these next two weeks go. They moved me back to 1st shift for 2 weeks while people are on vacation then not sure if it is back to 3rd to finish training or stay on first. I feel like a ping pong back and forth, back and forth.

That guy sounds a little like this lady. She says as long as she has notes she can do it. But if you have to many notes you never are sure which one's you use for what.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my strange post. I really do have to update it. Maybe in the next week or so I will be able to :)

It's good to hear about other people's work lives.
