Firstly congratulations on being offered a place at OR.
Secondly donít worry about time pressures on jobs etc. Iím a CALOMI engineer and to be honest with you, there ainít a great focus on it. Because of the variety of work we do jobs can take a few minutes up to a few days depending on the complexity. Jobs are rarely the same and even though certain tasks have time limits on how long it should take, itís impossible to stick within these 100% of the time.
I think itís more worked out on averages. For example on Thursday last week I had a job that took me 4 hours to complete and I only got 3 jobs done that day. However, today Iíve done 9 jobs and still finished before 4 oíclock. Itís all depends on the tasks you pick up and how your day goes. I know seasoned engineers whoíve had really complex jobs that have taken them over a day to complete. A job takes as long as it takes.
Also being on the training team iím sure a small amount of leeway is given as basically you are still training. As Lincsboy says speed will come with time. Iím sure they would rather you take your time, do the job right and up to a good standard, rather than rushing it and making silly mistakes.
Thirdly, enjoy training, itís a lot to take in but they really have thought it out well and they prepare you enough to go out and do the job. Thereís plenty of support and you should really enjoy it.
Need to know anything else, give me a shout.
