Performance Review

Abigail, you have been a part of the PL organization for a month now and the management feels it's time to undergo a review. Please feel free to comment at any time during this discussion.

This is broken down into 5 sections.

It is a little hard to evaluate your accomplishments at this point. We recognize that you are still in training and this will come up more later on in your time here. We just wanted to make you aware of our desire that you keep track of your accomplishments during the year so that we can review them and discuss them at your annual review.

This is an area you have developed remarkably well in a short amount of time. Both the assistant manager and myself marvel at how quickly we've developed a strong affection for you as you are very easy to like. The one area you may wish to work on though, is in your late night activities. We both feel that there is a direct correlation between the amount of late night activity and strains in the relationships.

This is an area you excel at. You are both dependable in your timeliness and in your habits. The one area of dependability that doesn't necessarily coincide with our organization's principles is the habit of vomiting. I wasn't sure how to state that discreetly so I chose just to face it head on. You are very dependable in the spit-up arena and yet this area of dependability should be curbed to blend in with the team here at PL.

Adaptability and Flexibility
Our compliments go out to you in this area. We have found you to be fully adaptable in many varied situations. Several times we have put you in the position of needing to work through your lunch hour and you have provided minimal disagreement. We are also encouraged with how willing you are to network with various family members as well as members of other social organizations such as GNF.

Decision Making/Problem Solving
Again, this will become more evident over time and is likely to be reviewed in more detail at your annual review. During your training period decision making is limited but more will be assigned to you over time. Problem solving is something we feel is a weakness for you. At this point we feel as though you require management to solve most of your dilemmas and we would like to encourage you to feel empowered to find solutions on your own.

In summary, Abigail, we wanted to let you know that we feel we made the right decision in inviting you to be a part of our organization and we are looking forward to a continued relationship as we work together towards mutual goals. We will review further at the end of your probationary period in 2 months.

glad to hear that Abagail is working out well in the PL organization. I'm a little concerned about what will happen if she fails her review in 2 months however... I mean where will such a little one find work in a town like Winnipeg?

Yikes! Maybe you should be pursuing that "dream job" you mentioned a few posts ago and let the "assistant manager" take over for a while! ;-)

If Abigail does not pass her 2 month probationary period, I'd be happy to give her a job
