I was recently hired for a job located just a few short minutes from me. This company wants to bring me in to their headquarters for training located a couple of hours away. They have informed me that they will pay for my food and hotel room expenses during my time there. The training itself is going to be scheduled as 8-hour shifts spread out for the several days I'm out there.
Coincidentally, my significant other found out she will be getting time off during the time I'll be up there for training. I would like to bring her up with me but I'm concerned on whether this would be considered inappropriate. I know that it is not uncommon to bring your significant other along on business trips, but I do not know if these same rules apply for a company I have not started working for yet.
Would it be considered inappropriate to ask management if I could bring my significant other with me on this trip so long as pays for her own meals?
