I started a job 2 weeks ago now and i feel completely overwhelmed and don't know what i am doing. In the job i am being trained for i would be working completely on my own for my boss, but right now i am being trained by someone who used to work for the company. (Family member of boss who always trains new employees). I felt like i didn't receive much training seems this person had to fit the training around their schedule, and so we didn't get much in person training time.
I also cannot send out any of my work without it being reviewed so the idea is that i do everything i can, ask her questions via phone or text if i need to, and then she comes in to check my work and we send it out, but the problem is she hasn't really come in much, so those things have gotten left, and sometimes she has taken a really long time to respond to things, and i still don't completely know how to use the system.
I spent the whole day today stressing constantly, anxious, upset, and very hot getting so worked up. I spent an hour trying to figure something out on my own seems she hadn't gotten back, and i have people constantly calling me wanting the things we need to send back to them (which i couldn't seems she wasn't there to review it). I also am sure i did a ton of things wrong and didn't save some stuff i should have.
I ended up leaving work relieved and spent the whole car ride home crying and dreading going back on Monday. I can't even sleep right now with all the worry and stress that i am never going to learn this and will constantly feel this way.
Has anyone else experienced this? I feel bad saying to my boss i don't feel like the person training me is giving me enough training and time and taking a while to get back sometimes at is is family so i feel compromised. I don't know how long to stick it out and try. I seriously already hate it and would feel completely relieved not going back.
