Have you ever had to train someone new at your job? What's your method of training?
When I was training for my job, my coworker walked me through everything and I took very copious notes. When I took my management position at my last job, the store manager had me watch him do everything. Then he walked me through them a couple of times as I did them, then he guided me through them over the phone.
In the past, I've had people observe me do everything, and then I'll have them do it. I'll guide them through it once, and then as they do the work, I'll ask them how it should be done. Occasionally, I'll drop hints.
If you've trained new people at work before, what has been your method of training?

No, every time they try to make me I pawn them off on someone else. I'm a hands on learner which makes me a hands on teacher but I recognize not very many people are the same way so it's not effective. Cause I legit throw people to the Sharks when I train them.
Minimal explanation and a "I'll be over here if you need help"1

I am a new yorker. 90% of us are very meticulous with what we do and how we do it. We are also anal with a few things, In training someone (I was a former mentor) I would train the adult replacing me on what to do and how to handle the kids. Train them like they dont know anything and watch give them tips, dont make it monotonous or arduous, make it so they can grasp it0
