I stopped by the house today. I was lucky enough that no workers were present which meant that I could tour the house! Yay! With stairs and all I was able to walk around upstairs. Now… finally… I’m getting real excited.
I took a bunch of photos and then decided to film a walk through video.
As I finished filming the first floor, the superintendent, Roger, pulled up to the house so I resumed filming after he left.
Here’s some still photos:
Today was my first day of training. The trainer I was doomed to have taught. The thing with her is that she’s emotionless. She reads from the text book and asks “volunteers” to read various passages from our workbooks. The other problem is that she’s probably never done our jobs or used the the new system live herself so she wasn’t able to answer questions that weren’t in the book. She kept a list of things we’d have to ask someone else about. Perhaps because I’m interested in learning the new system, oddly, I didn’t space out.
We have a system we use called the “------- Library”. It’s a reference system we use to look up policies and procedures. It’s our work bible of sorts. If I have to hear that woman say “Li-berry” one more time I’m gonna scream. It’s Li-brar-y. [lahy-brer-ee, -bruh-ree, -bree]
A good thing is that they had an experienced banker, Josh, come in and help explain some of the features. He’s been on the system using the pilot version for months now. Since he’s also used the old system, he was perfect to explain the differences. He’s also a funny person. Here’s a photo of him I swiped from his Facebook page:
He wore a Spiderman mask while he mowed the lawn just for the shock and awe value. He said people would stop their car, back up, roll the window down and snap a photo. This makes him awesome.
