Dont want to resign as unemployment is rising and may not get another job Staff are ok , what is the normal lenght of time before a company expects you to be up to speed and fully competent in the role I have always worked in sales but recently have taken stock of my life and would really like to do without the hard sell and look forward to coming to work for a change Any help appreciated
