You couldn’t be more right! I’ve never worked an office job but this is the one complaint my husband has had as he’s started new jobs over the years. It’s so common, across many sectors as well. He’s done everything from office, tech, warehouse and now as a driver for a major courier company.

He’s been the new guy so many times over the last 15 years and he always has to go through a settling in period of frustration and anxiety that a simple written training manual would have alleviated.

He’s even taken it upon himself at two of the jobs to write one himself to save the future generation of new guys the same stresses.

You really hit the nail on the head with this article! Thanks. Definitely worth the read!.
