So, two days at the new job now. Both days: stupid!
The people who have, in the recent past, done the job that I've been hired to do: out on vacation with the first not returning until next Thursday.
The back-up people who could teach me to do my job: out sick.
The forms to get a user logon and e-mail: unavailable, due to stupidity.
Chits to get a key to unlock my office door: have to wait for those.
I spent yesterday being "orientated" along with a new nurse. Most of the talk was about stuff for the new nurse because for me to really learn anything about how to do my job I need to be able to log on to my computer.
We didn't take a tour because it was hot out. Well, duh! It's central California in September. It's always hot out!
Today I sat with a woman and watched her do her job. Sure, she showed me some places in the building and I saw what it's like to rush to finish your reports, but the odds of me ever doing what she does are pretty much nil. I was bored for probably 7 out of the 8 hours today.
(Oh, a good thing about this job, I don't have to take a lunch and I can come in early. That means I can come in at six, eat at my desk, and leave at two. Awesome.)
Tomorrow's not looking to be any better, either. If I'm lucky one certain person will be here tomorrow and I'll be able to get my security training and my keys and my logon and maybe actually start to learn my job.
Oh, well. At least I'm getting paid.
