Employment Probation Period Anonymous 05/12/14(Mon)21:35 UTC+1 No.14255607 Report

Sup /adv/

So, I'm coming out of college (or 'senior high school' as you 'muricans call it) in two weeks and thought i'd best start looking for full-time work in my specialized field, IT. Luckily for me I managed to score a job within 5 days of applying for a Trainee IT Test Analyst role.

Today I got my contract through and I noticed my probation period was 6 months. As this is my first proper job, I have a few questions.

I thought this period seemed quite long, but from looking around it's pretty standard. Is it common for an employer to take an employee of probation provided they perform well, or do they typically last the full amount of time?

I'm also quite a pessimistic person, and can't help but think I won't make it through this period. Apart from the obvious, such as turning up on time etc, any advice to help me get through this period?

Cheers in advance for any replies
