Rookies

Welcome Rookies!

Our rookies are crew members who are new to Flynn, new to construction and/or new to the scope they’re working in. They are valuable members of the Flynn Family and like family, we want to make sure we set them up for success. We work to pair our rookies up with experienced coaches on their crew who guide them through a variety of tasks.

FAQ

How long is the rookie-coach relationship?

There is no time limit, as long as you and your coach agree to keep training. However, the program is designed for a 6-month duration. The longer the coach and rookie relationship, the easier it becomes to communicate with one another and the more beneficial it becomes to both the coach, and the rookie.

What happens when a rookie or a coach leaves a crew?

Coaches should try and arrange with the foreman/superintendent that the rookie is paired with a new trained coach. As a coach it is your responsibility to make sure your rookie does not end up without a coach.

What is the process for time spent on coaching (as a rookie or as a coach) in digital time cards? (Should a special code be used to account for the time?/ Subaccount charged?)

Charge it to the task that you are training on. For example, if you are teaching your rookie how to do setup you would charge to setup (on job training).

Am I expected to do this on my own time or on company time?

For Coaches: Developing rookies is considered a legitimate workplace activity and will be paid for by the company

For Rookies: On the job training is paid by the company. However, some videos may be better viewed on a wireless network which may need to take a few minutes at home in preparation for doing the task the next day

As a Rookie what do I do if I disagree with a score I was given to me by my Coach?

The purpose of being coached is to learn new things. The learning outcome is more important than the score, so there shouldn’t be an argument. You could ask you coach what you could do differently next time to improve.
