    Hi everyone!

    I have been posting on here alot about recent job interviews etc.
    I got the job as a Buying assistant for a Large retailer. However i am on a
    3 month probabtion period (which is normal)

    But im SO SCARED, im going to loose it. Ive already been made redundant once, i dont
    want to loose this job.

    Any tips or advice anyone can give me?

    I love this new job. I feel like im working so hard and tredding on egg shells so i dont say anything wrong or do anything out of line y'know??
    ive only been there a WEEK!!!!

    How likely is it people dont pass probationary period??

    any advice is GREATLYYY appreciated!

    Positive Rating!

    All it means is that it's fairly easy to get rid of you without going through the disciplinary process. That said, they're unlikely to sack you for anything that wouldn't normally get you at least a disciplinary!

    I'm sure they're not out to get you

    Unless your performance is awful, it highly unlikely you will be let go at the 3 month stage. Especially given the increasing thoroughness of graduate recruitment processes.
