Is The First Week At A New Job, Make Or Break?

Is The First Week At A New Job, Make Or Break?

A survey conducted in the US by software publisher BambooHR found that 50% of employees regret their new position within the first week of being on the job. Amongst the reasons given was supervision in their early days, or more help getting to know their colleagues. We take a look at the survey in a more local context, and also asked listeners what they look out for when starting a new job - and if they've ever left within the first week.
