I work as an office manager for a paper company in Lexington, MA. One of my many responsibilities is to new employees on how our computer system works. This usually involves me sitting down with the new hire to the different features of the program. It is not very exciting, but it is a job.

The other day I got a call from my boss and he told me that I would need to train two new employees the next day. I expressed my concern that we were not following the for this kind of training, but he didn't care. The training is supposed to last for five days, and my boss wanted me to do it in one day. He told me to come up with some kind of that would condense everything I teach into eight hours. Needless to say, I wasn't happy. I don't mind showing new employees the , but this was ridiculous. I am starting to not like this company. When I was first hired I had a hard time. There was no training at all. I was the first day. There was no time to get a so I could see how things were run. Luckily, another employee saw how upset I was and took me . He me and answered all of my questions that first month on the job.

It may be time to find a new job. I am starting to lose my patience with this place. Do you know of any job openings?
