Yea I received my equipment on the 22nd. Just as you said, no email with tracking number. UPS alerted me as well though.


Oh okay, yeah you’re always a little ahead of me lol


Yeah they have been on point over here. Have you received your orientation schedule email yet?

Is it also safe to say we should receive the information for orientation (conference number, time, etc.) as I received my welcome letter, but it stated this info will be sent in another email.

I agree. I emailed the area hiring manager from the welcome email, but haven't heard anything. I'll probably have to call someone Monday as well.

The area manager emailed me back and said for me to reach out to my manager via phone. I got no callback, so I guess I will reach out again Monday or refer back to the area manager.

Everyone is on loose or use leave.

Which is why things have slowed down.

Fear not it’ll be ok.

December hire with just some words of advice.

Just take it one day at a time. First few days are going to seem off because you have to get your laptop set up first. Once you actually have access you are going to be troubleshooting, calling the help desk or putting in help tickets, and trying to get access to the systems you need for the job. They are also going to throw a lot of information at you and it won’t really make sense. However, once you get access to certain systems and start to use them you will see the pieces slowly start to come together. Read and look over the material they give you, but don’t stress out about trying to memorize it all. Everyday things will start to make a little bit more sense. If you have questions just reach out to your OJI or GM.

Great!! Glad you were able to onboard timely! 3 weeks in now, are you as terrified as I am?
Between the acronyms and the different systems, the fear is deep within lol.

Yeah it’s a lot of information, but we should know so much by the time official training starts, seeing it got pushed back to the end of February.

Look folks, you all need to take a breath have an adult beverage.

You’re 2 weeks into a year of training.

I’m an OJI and have been detailed to Area Training since June. It’ll be alright.

POD orientation isn’t designed to make you an RO. It’s designed to make you familiar with terms and make you aware of some of the software we use to do our job, give you basic risk mitigation techniques and get you prepared for Unit Training.

How do I know this you ask… i helped develop
The training and delivery.

I am going to tell you what I beat into my trainees heads (figuratively).

Stop making yourselves a bunch of panicky trainees. You’re going to give
Yourselves a collective stroke.

Your OJI and manager are going to give you all the tools you need. All will be reveled and become clear.

And if
You can’t get answers from your OJI or manager hit me up. I’ll help you.

You have a whole year use it. And it’ll be ok. Ask questions. I hate it when my trainees don’t ask me questions. Because either I’m a exceptional OJI or they’re afraid of me.

So my moral of the story.

Take a breath, drink an adult beverage and It will be OK.
