The training was very fun and helps broadening one's horizons. It was like a summer camp. It depends on the department too. Their orientation leader training is fun where some departments training may be dull they are just doing it because they have to, and they expect you to pick things up while on the job. You are getting paid during training so its all good.
Some professors are not supportive.
The best thing about the training is that it is quite thorough. Even though it is extensive, it only describes situations and the best course of action, but in this department, no incident is ever the same so the training only prepares you slightly. The training is conducted for this position over a span of 5 weeks during the summer before your position technically starts.
i LOVE the training process. you went through one on one peer mentor per week and meet twice a week in groups to learn skills on acting listening and peer counseling. I apply those skill even outside of my work. the training process was great and i would appreciated even if i was not offered for the job but i did!
on the job training is pretty much learn as you go or as things come out. This company needs to work on their job training.
Job training is limited to a few hours at the beginning and is largely taught by people who do not like the job.
There was remedial training, a lot of the tasks were learned on the spot when it needed to be done. Tasks were easy to pick up but a little more hands on training would be helpful.
