So today was my first day at work and was pretty boring since I just watched training videos all day. The last hour or so, though, the assistant manager (I guess) told an employee to train me on the register. Unfortunately, his idea of "training" was to let me ring people up while he kinda hung around but mostly went to do his own thing. I don't even blame him that much because she just kinda shoved me on him and he's only been there three or four weeks himself. Still, the results were awkward, I didn't really know what I was doing and had to keep getting stuff repeated.
Anyone have any "awkward first day of work" stories? How long did it take for you to get into the swing of things?
