The first six months of employment are designated as a probationary period. This period of time allows you to become familiar with your new position and for your supervisor to observe your progress. Most of you will like your new job and will be able to perform satisfactorily, but the probationary period provides an opportunity for both you and your supervisor to try out the new relationship. If you feel that the job does not suit you during this time, or if you are not suited to the duties of the new job, employment may be ended without affecting future employment opportunities. During the probationary period, your supervisor will work closely with you to provide you every chance to succeed. At the completion of the probationary period, you will have a performance building interview with your supervisor.
