I briefly worked for a call center doing customer service. Before any of us could get on the phones, we had a month of training in a designated classroom. Each new hire sat in front of a computer. We were told that we could explore what was basically a company encyclopedia if we wanted to follow along with what was being taught, but we were not to log into our personal emails.
Iím sitting at the front of the class, paying attention, and the new hire next to me is in her email. Iím not about to say anything b/c it would be disruptive and itís not my place, but the instructor could tell this new hire was not paying attention.
So the instructor grabbed the screen and tilted it back toward herself so she could see it. And she saw the personal email. Instructor corrects the new hire, not in the nicest way (b/c seriously, we're not in kindergarten), but not loudly enough that the whole class can hear. New hire logs out of email.
New hire then proceeded to complain about the instructor at lunch, about how she had no right to do that and blah blah blah. Ignoring the fact that we had *all* been told to not log into our personal emails during class.
That particular new hire made it out of the probationary period, but was suspended a month or so later for something unrelated.
