Support from Management
I did not feel supported by my management during my training, in some cases. I was berated for making honest mistakes that everyone made, and I felt like I did not have any support from some management. If you question anything or make any kind of waves you have a target placed on your back. I felt like they talked a good game about always having people there to answer your questions or to whom we could raise concerns, but there seemed to be retaliation if you did not do things each person's way. There was a lot of mixed messages in a job that was supposed to be very straight forward.
In training it's very hard to meet the goals they set, and communication from your mentors is anything but clear. You have to do a certain amount of work with a limited amount of errors, but even when you do something exactly the same way, you might get an error once and then not another time. Also, the buddies who were assigned for trainees did not always give the correct answers, I went to one for advice twice, did exactly what they said, and still received an error on my report.
