I have at long last been given a start date for next month as a Fibre Jointer but I don't really know enough about the role, training, Openreach, etc and hoped you all could answer some of my questions is that is OK?
What does the typical day look like for a Fibre Jointer? I believe that they cover a lot of different jobs? Does include installation in peoples houses?
As I am in Scotland, is there training centres in Scotland that I would go to or is it always Yarnfield? How long is the training?
What is my working pattern likely to be? How many weekends per month, what shifts, etc?
Do you still shadow someone for 6 months after training?
Is the training good enough to get a new person up to speed and trained correctly?
The starting wage is £21,845 but when does that go up and what does it go up to?
I've read that managers can be on your back a lot and some jobs go on for hours after your finishing time. Is this still the case?
At this point, I am genuinely on the fence about whether or not this is the job for me as I want to make sure I will definitely enjoy it so am wanting to know as much as possible.
If I am completely honest, I'm apprehensive about travelling all the time and I keep picturing silly scenarios like drilling through someone's house wall and hitting a pipe or something
I am a worrier about these things.
