One Big Moving Target
Maintenance Engineer, Virtual Office - March 18, 2015
When I hired on at NACR, they gave me several web links for my training. Half of those links did not work. I told my manager at the time, and he said that he would get that training for me later (but he left before he provided me with that training). It wasn't long before other managers were upset when my performance did not fall in line with what that training should have taught me. In the four months that I worked at NACR, I was given five different managers to report to and two different second level managers. Each of those managers had different expectations. The moving target was insane. I spoke with the other engineers who had been there longer than I had in order to try and get a better grasp on what I needed to be doing and what I should be avoiding. The other engineers implied that they didn't know for sure either, but that they just got in the habit of changing their behaviors every time they got yelled at (which sounded like a regular occurrence).
