Congratulations! You’ve been hired to the MyITPros service team, and now you’re probably wondering what exactly you got yourself into. When you begin any new job, there are always many questions. What new technology and processes will you have to learn? What goals will you need to hit after 30, 60 and 90 days? What will the day-to-day routine be like? The good news is that MyITpros has a formalized training program and a solid support structure to help ease you into your new role!
What should you expect from your first week?
Think of the first week as basic training – but, no, we won’t send you off into the wilderness with a blanket and a Swiss army knife. Basic training at MyITpros is more like an intense crash course introducing tools, services and who we are as a company, and you’ll meet your assigned team along the way. There’ll be a lot of information thrown at you, and it may feel as if you’re on training overload, but that’s OK! The service manager who’s training you will take a systematic approach toward introducing each service and tool, giving you a broad overview before zooming in for a comprehensive lesson.
My advice for your first week is simple: Soak in as much as you can, and remember that your teammates are your best resource. They have all been in your shoes, and no one expects you to be an expert at everything. In fact, they know you’ll make mistakes, and that is 100% all right. At MyITpros, what’s important is that you learn from your errors and move on.
Navigating the first 90 days
Once you survive week one, you’ll wonder what the next three months will look like. You’ll start off your second week shadowing fellow service members on the phones, creating tickets and even fielding some calls, all with the safety blanket of the service all-stars who are mentoring you.
By the third week, it’s go time! Your team will start assigning you tickets, and you’ll really get your feet wet. Know that a “typical day” doesn’t really exist at MyITpros – you can expect to be personally challenged by something new almost every day. You’ll probably start with something simple, like mapping a drive, connecting a printer or adding a new user. Next, you might have to procure some software, then update DNS or troubleshoot a line of business application. You never know what’s coming, but never fear, for you are not alone.
At the end of your 90-day probation period, a kudos is sent out to the whole service team, and everyone is really supportive! Your service manager will also ask you to fill out a 90-day questionnaire to provide feedback on your training and introductory period, which is a great way to help shape the onboarding process for your future team members.
