I was hired on the first week of March, and my very first day to work is a week after the orientation.
On my training day, my day started with an alcohol test on the computer, and the spill-cleanup test. After that, I was passed a paperwork, which they told me to give my trainer. I said "I'm not sure who Wenda (my trainer) is." And to their surprise, they said, "oh you havent met her yet??!!"
Anyway, moving forward, so I met with my trainer when she was going back to her checkstand from the restroom. We introduced each other, and so on.
She had me read the booklet that they handed me when I was taking the alcohol test.
It took me about 10 mins to review them since I've already read it when I was in the computer area.
Then she had me watch her do checkout on 2-3 guests(customers).
After that, she put me on the checkstand.
I got on her checkstand, and she was watching me for about 10-15 mins. Few mins later there's alot of customers so we needed more cashiers. She jumped on one of the checkstands, leaving me alone, when I was supposed to being trained.
On the following days I was working, I kept blinking my light, which indicated that I need assistance. And most of the things I learned that was supposed to be told during training, I learned from experience myself.
For example, nobody showed me how to remove the spider-locks that go around expensive items like vacuum. I kept asking help for that, and every time, I tell them that "nobody told me how to do it" and I hope that they would show me how....so I try to watch them how to do it but I couldnt see good by the way they hold it, because they dont try to show me. Finally 2 days before they let me go somebody finally showed me how to do it.
On my last week I was finally getting the hang of how things go there since I've just learned almost everything from my own. Today they let me go becuz I "dont meet their expectations." :(
