-Could use work--store very busy to train employees-- computer work easy. Once in position employees tend to struggle then get better as time continues.
It's ok, I had a cool trainer but I feel as if online courses being most of the training made it hard in the beginning.
it is fairly quick but you pick it up in the end
We had a full day of training at another store and it was great to go through a corporate level training program as a first job.
This varies from store to store and department to department, but typically there are some knowledgeable associates who take the lead on training new hires.
They do abysmal training. They toss employees into the shark tank and literally just wait to see what happens. Some managers are nice and understand when you don't know what your doing and they can see that its your fault. Others will get pissed and blame everything on your or talk behind your back. Overall, training is downright sad. They put employees in hazardous departments such as Meat Department with no training at all. Imagine an employee cleaning meat grinders, blades, saws, the list goes on. All with no proper training or anyone around to help them. Honestly, that kind of scares me safety wise. For the consumer, and the employer. This is only one example but it often happens in other departments such as produce and fuel as well. Employees need real training for every single department, no matter what!
I was trained on the job and it taught me the basics, but to learn more you have to want to learn more.
You sit in front of a computer doing online training for a few hours and do some training out of a binder as a ground for the rest. The training is a total of 8 hours long.
The initial training is formalized. The position training really takes place OTJ with either a supervisor or seasoned employee. Usually, fellow associates are very helpful when asked for help.
The training was very short and not in depth enough. Most of the training happened in the first 3-6 months outside of the training room.
