    I took this job. It has been a challenge, to say the least. I was thrown in with no training. I have made embarrassing mistakes, given misinformation on how to do things, and there doesn't seem to be a real "true" way to do a lot of things...lots of gray area. I feel like I am in way over my head. I have asked to travel to other sites in an effort to glean knowledge and information.
