It's not a career killer ... but it is a negative thing on your record. If you don't do it again, it will fade in importance over time. So be careful not to keep making the same mistake repeatedly. In time, good performance will out-weigh the mistake.

It's a negative mark on your record. If you're a basically good employee, it probably won't hurt your career. But if you're a borderline employee, have attendance issues, make mistakes (especially in the areas the health streams you haven't done on time cover) it will be just one more piece of documentation on your road to unemployment.

If I had to get written up, I'd choose something like this. I'd even make a little heart shape when I signed instead of dotting my "i".

llg, Ruby Vee and Sour Lemon,

Thanks a lot for your advice. I will be very careful always and will keep up to date. But now I am feeling very uncomfortable there and am thinking of giveing two weeks notice.

Health stream is not worth quitting over.

I got dinged on one year because after I had completed everything long before deadline they snuck some new stuff in which I didn't know about until it was too late. All that happened on my annual eval was the manager put it into my goals for the year: all to be done on time.

Never came up again. Why are you so uncomfortable? Is this "one more thing" or an isolated event?

As Ruby Vee said, if there is a pattern of problems, this just adds to it. If not, it will be forgotten in the longer scheme of things.

I'm not sure I've ever completed my HealthStream on time. Currently, I still have stuff from July to complete. But I'm a bad example, and they give way too much HealthStream education IMO.

I hate that you are getting written up, but take it, do better next time. Agree with above poster, if I had to be written up I'd gladly take it for this instead of something more serious.
