Virtual New Employee Orientation

Posted by hannahdee250 @hannahdee250, Jan 4 9:41am

Hi All,
I am a new employee at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, with my first day being January 11! I did my POPA on December 28 — now I am just waiting. I am curious if anyone else is starting that day or around then? I also would love to hear from others who did a virtual orientation — what was it like? When did you receive information about it? How did you get your ID badge and figure out transportation (I'm living downtown so I'm planning on walking and taking the bus!).

Thanks!

I am a fully remote employee starting today. I got my photo taken when I went for the POPA visit, but I think other people do it on their actual start date. There is a place to get your ID created and printed after you get your photo. I didn't get a badge because of my remote status but we stopped by to check. I am also curious about the virtual orientation, I am currently on hold with the service desk because I am having issues logging into the VPN from home. Once I get that squared away I am hoping my orientation info is in my Outlook inbox.

Hi,
I start the 11th as well. I haven't heard anything about orientation yet either, my lead mentioned she would get a hold of me this week with the information. Maybe I'll see you at orientation.

Awesome! Yeah, maybe we will connect — feel free to PM me, Rachel!

After I did my POPA, I had to schedule another appt with HR for additional paperwork. Then on my first day, I got my picture taken for my ID and I think orientation (virtual) was scheduled for my first day. it was already in my calendar.

Hello! I actually started today and did the virtual orientation this morning. I thought it was smooth – it took a few hours for me, as there are several videos that share a lot of good history of Mayo and then there are little fun quizzes and things to take a long the way! I found it to be very informative, with the only feedback of wishing I had a print out of the orientation guide. 🙂
