    Maybe it's just to touch base? IMO, that is what they should be doing.

    Probably freaking out over nothing.. Unless Thursday at 2pm is your next scheduled shift? Typically if you are in trouble they dont let you keep working/orientating..

    Your NM probably just wants to see how things are going for you.

    Probably just touching base...I wish someone did that with me, I got booted off orientation 4 weeks early and thrown to the wolves...It's not that bad but it can be stressful. I am sure you are fine! Give us an update!

    This just happened to me a few weeks ago. It was after an especially difficult shift where I was sure I made some errors. I had to wait 4 entire days for the meeting with my manager only to find out it was only to see how I was doing in the orientation. It ruined 4 days off from all of the anxiety & it turned out to be nothing. Don't worry!!!

    My manager called me in during orientation just like you mentioned...and all she wanted to do was to touch base and see how things were going. I was actually shocked that she was asking if there was anything she could do to help me and that if I ever needed anything her door was always open. I wasnt expecting anything crazy to happen, but its just a natural reaction to be unsure of yourself in this situation. My only 2 cents....if she thinks things are going well and better than expected or something along those lines, dont be afraid to stand up for yourself in terms of still needing/asking for help and having the orientation length you were lead to believe would happen. I know a lot of new grads who were told/promised one thing and given another. Management will not always look out for your best interest - that's your job.

    chances are its just to touch base, see how things are going. Does anything need to change in your orientation? do you need to be given longer time?

    That happened to me one turned out my orientation was going soo well, they wanted to know if I felt comfortable cutting it short by 2 weeks.
