Additional Information

This company has a training requirement of all it's employees during the probation period. The reason the hourly pay is low during the training period is;

1. You are learning the facility operations, procedures, and job duty requirements

2. You are being trained by a trainer that is taking time away from their schedule to invest in your success

3. Statistically it takes a new employee approximately 30 days to learn a new job, and another 30 days to become proficient in it enough to be able to be work alone

4. Probation periods should be viewed as working interviews. This is the period you show your work ethic, what you bring to the table, your attendance and commitment to your agreement

to perform the job as per the job description, and overall show the type of employee the company hired for their business. 

At the end of your probation period, upon being offered a permanent position with them, you enter wage negotiations. These negotiations include;

Attendance: were you on time every day, did you work your full shift, did you take time off or call out, etc (it is advisable that you DON'T call out or take time off during any probation period)

Performance: Did you learn the job quickly, did your job competencies come out in your work, and what kinds of marks did you leave on your trainers and supervisors?

So, this is why the pay is lower to start. Prove yourself during the first 60 days and then negotiate your final hourly wage accordingly.
