I’ve been busting lots of extra tail trying to complete a project by the 21st for a presentation/training session. Sitting in the pre session meeting today, I discovered that there was actually going to be no time for me to present train. So now I guess I don’t have to work late every night, which is a good thing. But its pretty disappointing. Here are some interesting bits that cause this.
They are only allocating 1 day for what should be a 2 or 3 day training.
This is a fairly new product and they want all other divisions to be able to sell it. There is no literature available, we have not advertised it, and there are lots of sketch details about it, but we do sell it
The one day allocated, is actually going to be cut short because some people have to leave at 4pm
The company is flying people in from 5 divisions for one day, they will not pay for hotels over night and want to keep there overtime down to a minimum. For the record probably 97% of all the people that work here are hourly.
Last minute change, lets get all of this divisions sales people to come in also.
I can go on and on about this, and this is how everything is.
