Let's just say changing jobs at my age is hard, damn hard. And going from a place where I knew it all to a place where no one knows anything is even harder. After my first week I've learned very little, become extremely frustrated and worn myself out. I'm not used to having to think so hard. My old job everything was rote. Not the case here. Plus, the people that are training me don't really know what they're doing either. I'm sure in time it'll be fine, but right now I'm frustrated. I see so many things that I could "fix" but don't know how to approach the subject. There is one person that's been here for 12 years, I don't want to step on her toes, but I could help get things organized. And I hear she doesn't appreciate "help". Everyone else is pretty cool. Although it's quite different working with mainly men. They are COMPLETELY different than women! I'm sure in time I'll find my groove, but right now, I'm so tired. I have to get up earlier to get to work and by the time I come home I'm so mentally exhausted that I want to go straight to bed.
My posts will probably be sporadic as I'm shadowing different people each day to learn the job, but as soon as I figure it all out, I'll be around more. And as for the 453 posts in my inbox, they were all marked as read".
