The first 90 days of employment is considered a probationary period in which an employee has the opportunity to determine if they are able to perform the required duties, and supervisors are able to review the quality of the work performed. During this period your supervisor will closely observe your attitude, reliability and job performance to ensure that they are in line with our companies’ policies and expectations. If you have questions or concerns regarding any aspect of your job you should not hesitate to speak with your supervisor.
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. –Henry Ford
At the completion of the probationary period, you will be given a written performance evaluation along with a 30 day action plan. This process allows the opportunity to correct any weakness that may interfere with an employee’s progress or job performance. Probationary periods may be extended in 30 day increments.
