Today, I started a new job. The synopsis of my training was, "You're starting a job you're going to hate and you'll be fired for entertaining yourself while waiting for us to give you more work. But you're going to love being here." FML

Keep pestering them to give you work. They can't fire you for that.

How can you both hate it, and love it? Or do they mean that you'll hate the job, but love the workplace?

"Sound like my kind of job!" said no one ever.

why would you get fired for entertainment, if you don't have any work?

Using work resources to do something non-work related. The company is then paying you to do other stuff which may make them liable from other colleagues who don't get the same privilege

Well, technically, they can still fire OP, except in that case they won't have a good reason. I know lots of people who were fired because a new manager, i.e., didn't like their face, no matter how hard they worked.

If pestering is seen as a form of entertainment.

They can file a grievance and get their jobs back if that happens and the company would get in serious shit from the labour board

Hate the job, love working in the company I'm guessing. Maybe it's a good environment or they get nice bonuses?

Surely they're wasting their own time and money if employees on the clock are standing around "waiting for work"

Wait, did you get fired?

Quit and do something you love

Sounds like a shitty job I would keep looking if I where you.

They sound so motivational..

Sounds like you're going to have a fun time, OP. I'm terribly sorry.
