I'm scared
    #4552650 - 08/18/05 07:46 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

This week I was called back to work, after a big lay off, and was supposed to be training to be a boss/foreman/ supervisor/charge hand or whatever.

Well, monday I was trained on the debarker.  Tuesday I was trained on the board edger.  Wednesday and today they needed some lumber re-piled.  Braindead work.  But I have not learned anything about being a foreman.

Today, the afternoon shift supervisor twisted his ankle bad.  I've been on dayshift all week and tommorrow I have to come in for afternoon shift.........to run it!  :confused:

In this industry almost no one has heard of a charge hand my age.  I have no experience with such things.  I was nervous enough just being picked to do the training.  But to run a shift without any real training?  :rolleyes:

For the first time in a long time...I'm actually really scared.  Obviously everyone at work is upset about the decision to put me into this position in the first place.  Lots of talk behind my back.  I'm really worried.  I have no clue what I'm supposed to do with my day and if something breaks down(which it always does)...I'm clueless.

Why couldn't they just leave this introspective hippy alone with his thoughts, piling lumber  :grin:

I'm pretty worried though guys.  I'll let you know how it goes

It's all good...I just am thinking so much...it helps to get things off my chest.  Even if people don't post, just knowing they read it, it helps for some reason.

The shroomery is truly the best theraputic tool for me.  Thanks guys!  :heart:

haha, dude you'll be fine. Just stay at it. Way to go on your promotion! Go pay your boss a visit, he'll appreciate that you're checkin on him and also that you care enough about work to spend your time to ask him what all needs to be done.

What kind of work do you do?

I'm a brick mason.

The boss I've always had and the one whos been sort of training me is a different guy.  I've only met the one who twisted his ankle once.

I work in a sawmill.  Our main money maker is Cants(4X6, 6X6, 6X9, 10X10, etc).  But if we can't make a decent cant out of it, we shop it up into 2"(2X4, 2X6, etc).  A mill worker has never went to go see how, a boss he doesn't know, is doing  :grin: hehe j/j

lol seriously though, I don't think I'm going to be fine.

Even if you don't know the job completely...walk in there with confidence. Ask what you don't know. Respect others and they will respect you. Good luck.

Well, you seem to know how things are run there - just do what you've observed other supervisors doing. And if you can't, well just fake it until you make it! I'd be proving those gossipers wrong....

She's 100% correct! 
Ask questions.  Noone with a question remains ignorant.  Good luck  :thumbup:

the first thing a supervisor needs to know is the jobs his people have to do, looks like your training had begun and you were not aware of it.

oh no, I agree...and I knew I was being trained. But knowing the jobs of the mill...is the first baby step. I was supposed to be in training all week. But it hasn't happened.
