The job training was rushed. Details weren't given as to what the actual job would be like. Also training on auditing system was rushed and not explained thoroughly. I felt as if I was being thrown to the wolves. At least I'm competent enough to ask questions while working.
One short training session and then they throw you into a shift that uses skills you still haven't learned yet. Most of your training comes from trial and error the first few months of employment.
Showed you around the home Depot, then gave machines needed to count inventory and had to practice speed because everything must be typed in a timely manner
The best thing training was it was quick, painless and to the point! The worst thing was , nothing at all!
I think the training program could use a little work to prepare you to increase your speed and thus your compensation on audits. The current training program doesn't seem to focus on getting you up to speed, very little detail is discussed. You pick it up on the job more.
If you're lucky enough to have a patient supervisor during your first few inventory events you will receive good on-boarding training. However, if you don't or if you're thrown into a high volume inventory on your first or second day (which is likely) your supervisor may speak down to you or insult you behind your back.
Best part about training is being able to train in an actual retail environment.
Training sessions are not too useful. The best training is on-the-job training. For your first few work sessions you will probably have a supervisor directing you. You can ask coworkers any questions you might have about operating work equipment, and they are your most important resource.
The trainer explains how to do the job, you watch a training video, then you go to a store and learn how to use the equipment that you will count with
The best thing about the training is it gives you a small crash course into what you will be doing in the field. The downside is that you will be getting more inadvertant training while on the job and learn things. Pretty much learning from mistakes on the job.
