Hey all, I just discovered this website in the last week or so and am extremely lucky to have done so! I'm moving from operations to a corporate position within my company next month and have been doing everything I can to prepare. I'm fairly comfortable with the swap aside from one thing I was hoping for some advice on.
My company's office opens at 8:30 AM, though it seems that peple come in any time between 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM based on their personal schedule. My new boss asked me to come in at 9:00 AM that day to be sure everyone who needs to get me setup will be there. I'm fairly uncomfortable with the thought of being percieved as "late" on my first day as the office does open at 8:30 officially. I was planning to get there at 8:15 and bring study material... But after listening to the podcast on the 8 minute rule https://www.manager-tools.com/2011/02/eight-minute-rule I'm wondering if that would cause more damage than its worth.
Any advice on when I should actually get there would be appreciated!
PS-I showed up 45 minutes early to the interview last month (wish I had found this place sooner) if that helps give further backdrop
