    I'm sure that even the skeeviest of places would inform an employee that they didn't make the cut.

    It would probably be in a sit-down evaluation with ADON and your supv. Never had one. Just assuming.
    If they thought you weren't going to work out, they wouldn't have given you a badge or delayed your inquiry with 'in two weeks'. They'd just come right out and say it.

    It's a group orientation, so...that kind of makes me think it's been postponed due to 'unforeseen circumstances'.

    Doesn't sound like they let you go to me either. I'll bet they had either something happen that caused a delay, or in order to do group orientation they might be required to have so many new hires in a group. Your badge is considered company property, so if you was being let go they would've had you turn it in, and they would've told you they didn't think you would work out.

    I know it's easier said than done, but try to relax and wait for them to call you back for orientation. I'm pretty sure you still have your job.

    Thanks I will wait and let you guys know if they ever call me back. I am actually very sick at the moment. Had severe diarrhea for 2 days now..so I am happy that I am not working at the moment.

    It was actually all a misunderstanding. There was some confusion with the schedules.

    I was supposed to work the week I thought I didn't have orientation. Everything is ok now!

    I know that at my facility we have set orientation days-- usually only one or two a month depending on number of new hires.. I wouldn't stress it. They may just not know when the next scheduled day will be.
