I was sent to work at client site.
I spent 3 weeks doing nothing, but on the third week, my manager came to me and told me that I will take over somebody's job and I have two weeks to learn from him.
When this guy started "teaching" me, an anomaly was assigned to me by email, instead of the ticketing system.
The problem I am having right now is that the environment can't work correctly so that I could work entirely on that urgent anomaly, and the guy I am supposed to take over his job just explained stuff verbally and didn't show me much.
Also, there seems to be a conflict between what he does and what the manager wants me to do in the future. Anyway, it's just not clear and this anomaly just made things worse.
Also, something bothers me a lot, is that the manager didn't take the necessary actions to create my badge (formally notifying the client ...), and he told administrators to change a previous developers account name, instead of creating a new user for me. So now, in my session, logical names are mine, but physical one's are of the previous developer.
That being said, a new person joined us and got a brand new account.
I also don't understand why I still don't have a ticketing account nor any necessary account. I am still not included in a mailing list etc.
Are these working conditions acceptable?
Isn't it a bad idea to start with a very hard task as a first official task?
PS: The guy who is supposed to train me came to me yesterday in the morning to tell that they're relying on me and that I am observed as I am new and still on probation.
Am I in trouble?
I have a bad feeling about this new job since the summer, and I am tired of this lack of visibility and lack of organisation.
