    How long does it take to settle into a new job? I started a retail job in a shop on Monday and I am SO nervous everyday I make so many mistakes and I have only been taught half of it. I have to get the manager to help probably 75% of the time and even though the staff are all really nice, I can't help feeling like they are getting frustrated.

    There's no set time, it depends on the job and the individual, but six weeks or so before you are reasonably confident with the day to day routine would be perfectly normal.
