After being hired on, you'll be given a date for orientation. You'll show up at the main entrance, and more than likely, there will be a ton of other people waiting. You'll all then go through security and then go upstairs to the room where they host the class. The class is roughly 8 hours, but it flies by, just don't pay attention to the time. ha.
They'll show you a bunch of videos and discuss the rules and what not. They provide lunch, which is cool. The room is quite chilly in my opinion, so, bring a hoodie or a sweater or something cozy. They have coffee, tea and hot chocolate also available.
Orientation is just for one day, and then, assuming that you've already got your SIDA badge, you'll most likely start training the next day or whatever your schedule is to be.

Be sure to stay in touch with your supervisor, and get familiar with building numbers. It's not as complicated as it seems and it's really not a bad place to work! Don't listen to the whiners too much. It's what you make of it. I wouldn't have come back if I didn't like it.
