Trainees phase 2
We recently received three new circulation staff to train in at my library. It's been a week or two and I think they might have gotten the basics down, more or less. Now they are starting in on the secret rules, the culture, and who they will be here.
Today I have noticed that the first thing that each one of these new people has learned is that talking with, or spending time with the Manager is a safe zone from working.
I am sad to say that this is the 187th thing anyone should learn here, and ideally I like to see it learned through cynical observation, not through its happy occupation.
