Even though I’ve only been on the job for six months, my manager asked me to train the new hire. She was starting today and when she arrived, we got down to business.
Akira: So, the first thing I’ll do is to give you a run down of the duties of the job. Your main responsibilities will be to ensure that the reports are finished each week, make any adjustments that need to be made, and distribute them to each department. Is that clear so far?
Frances: Sure. That seems pretty straightforward. Who do I report to?
Akira: Your immediate supervisor is Ida Funck. We all work under her in this department. Okay, here’s the employee manual. Make sure you read it.
Frances: Great. Thanks. Now, when do I get a break?
Akira: A break? You’ve been here a half an hour.
Frances: Has it been that long? I need some coffee. Needless to say, it was a very, very long day.
