Just thought I'd give some updates on how things are going with this job.
So I'm now in the 2nd week of training, out of 10 weeks. It's pretty intense in terms of work; the shift is what you'd expect during training, 9 AM - 5 PM. But on top of that, we also get group assignments and homework. Then on Mondays, we get grilled in both a quiz and two interviews on the material, lol. I did pretty decent in the first week, but it's only going to get that much harder every week, since it's all cumulative. They can grill you about Week 1 topics with Java during Week 8's material, during the interview parts, if they so desired.
As for commissions, I'd like to say I'd be up to taking small and quick ones, but I'm still not sure just how busy the coming weeks will be. I don't want to give any false signals, and then have to retract immediately if things suddenly pick up, so I'll probably have to think more about this once I get an idea of what the future workload will entail.
That's about all for this round. I hope everyone enjoys their holidays and such~
