Warning - Complaint Post Ahead
I have this urge to complain. I know that these feelings will probably pass and I am trying to be optimistic but for now I want to complain.
I was appointed in my new position on the 31st of January 2008. I signed the docs and the position was regarded as filled. Although it was an internal move, I was still required to serve a month's notice. My new department had 4 freaking weeks to sort out the logistics and admin regarding my move. But what's been done. Absolutely Nothing.
I walked into my new office on Monday morning only to find the cupboards full of crap of the last person that left. Okay fine - I cleared it all up. I hate clutter and at least it gave me a chance to personalise my own stuff. I still don't have a PC or a phone. I am still sitting in my old department and every freaking person that walks past wants to know why am I still here, what am I doing here etc etc etc. Can't they understand that I don't have a computer to access mails etc. And to top it off - it's not that I don't have work to do. I have been given work to do - so how in the world am I supposed to do it without a freaking PC. And they don't know when it's coming.
I am feeling very frustrated at the moment. Also their way of doing things has come to a huge shock to me. Yes I understand that there will be a learning curve, I come from a department that is totally different although it is within the same field. But I have not been formally introduced into exactly what I am supposed to do. I would have assumed that my boss would have sat with me and explained the workings of her department - but she did no such thing. I must admit though that she seems really nice but a bit all over the place.
I am feeling this huge disconnect and feel as though I am in the dark. I have been getting queries and its a question and ask excercise which is a little frustrating. I know that this is how i will learn but what about some kind of formal or even on the job training. I come from a department that is very structured and organised and there are specific plans in place to enable a new starter's onboarding.
know that it has only been a few days and I should find my feet soon - but I just feel so damn CLUELESS.............
