    I am currently in training. Did you have any problems with accessing the sawgrass training. I keep getting disconnected or get an error screen. I am not sure at this point if I will ever get through in time with the training!!
    Do you know how they grade the training?

    not sure if its the same for every skill, but the 2 skills i trained for were just graded by the final test grade. Good Luck!

    Hi Suni. Good to know I have someone in training with me. I had problems at first signing on to the Sawgrass training. I called a Citipal and they gave me the training login and it has been working since. You have 2 separate logins. The first login is your wah login and the second one you have to call a citipal to receive.

    There is so much to learn though. I have one more test to go and I will be on my way to a call.

    HI clbuck1,

    Good luck to you!! Citi must be a new client because I did not see any postings about it till I ran accross yours. I still have 2 training module to go and a webinar. I work another job outside the home so I have to get it done when I can.
    How did you do answering the questions within the training?
    For example when the answer about a card was driver's edge, I put drivers edge without the apostrophe and was marked inncorrect. Happy New year let me know how it goes!

    By test Do you mean after all the traing is there a test or are we being tested within the training. If so Im messed up answers are obviously expected verbatem. Because I get them right but because of an extra word I get INNCORRECT UGH!!!!! YEah I know we have 2 logins I had to call a citipal as well to get a login for sawgrass

    Yeah I have a full time job as well during the day. I will do this in the evenings and on weekends. I hate how when you don't type it exact it counts you out, but that does not matter. What matters is the ending tests after each module that gives you 3 attempts to complete. We have a total of 4 tests. We are not being tested within the training. Did you ever get your Sawgrass logins? I am finishing up the last one - Client II. I have my first webinar on Sunday. Hopefully they will offer the other 2 on next week.

    Do we have to do all 3 webinars or just 1. I was a tad confused when they sent the confirmation after I signed up. It states at the bottom If you have done this webinar you do not need to do another. Seemed rather vague! I signed up for one on the 5th of Jan. Have you purchased a headset yet? Any suggestions on One?
    Yeah, I did get the sawgrass login but it expired after a certain amount of time and I had to call and get another. I haven't been on training in 2 days because of my other work. SOOOOOOO I am off to do some more training. Thanks for all your help. I wish I were of more help. Lots of CS experience but I have never done phone work before

    Oh that is okay. We can both learn together. I don't have a lot of CS experience myself. My background is Accounting/Finance. I am going to purchase my headset tomorrow since my first webinar is Sunday. I think that msg means if you have done webinar 1 you don't have to do webinar 1 again, if you have done webinar 2 you dont have to do webinar 3 again, etc...............

    So what in the Heck do they do for 3.5 hours???????????????
    I havent had one yet none of last week fit in my schedule. so Im hoping they have some more scheduled this week. Have you had any problems with sawgrass no passwords all weekend[​IMG]

    It was discussed in the webinar on yesterday about the passwords not working. Supposedly they were going to have new ones issued today. That is so crazy how they expire every day.

    Oh, and the webinar, yeah 3 and a half hours. Lol! We had a 5 minute break. Haha! It was basically just a recap of everything we went over in the first part of the training module. He did select some to do role plays where he was the client and you had to work through sawgrass some and answer some questions.. That is about it.

    Wow, I glad I saw that SOMEONE actually was assigned to Citi Group besides myself. I've been reading thru these posts & it sees like the majority of people have been assigned to either Sears, VM or some other client. I think I was assigned to this bcuz during my interview I said that I've worked for American Express b4??? I have a lot of CS experience so maybe it was the way I spoke.
    Anyway, it seems like all of us will be starting training or already in training so no one really know what the schedule are like, huh? I really wanted 2 know the morning & evening schedules since we have 2 work a minm of 20 hrs a week. I have a full time outside job workinf for a mobile company where I get home @ 7pm so its going 2 be TIGHT! I'm going 2 have to put in the majority of those hours on my days off.
    Is everyone pushing to get that $100 bonus? Well, I just got my email 2 day about what skill I was assigned to, but I still have 2 complete my drug test tmw. Since I know I'm not a drug addict, I should be on my way w/ u all by this weekend.

    Good luck everyone!

    Its great to see somebody else on here as well for me. There were a lot of people hired,but maybe no one knows about this site. Good luck to you. I am going to be taking my last service test and move on to sales training in the next couple of days. Keep in touch let me know how you are doing

    Anyone having technical issues with the Sawgrass training? I'm able to sign in and search about half the account numbers they give me, the other half don't work. I was origionally runing Vista 64 and have reinstalled Vista 32 as it won't run in a 64 bit environment. Now I'm trying to figure out how to roll back to XP without losing too much, to see if it will work then.

    Hello everyone! I just accepted a position with WAH and was assigned citi cs. Also I have some friends who also just started but they were able to pick a skill where as I was just assigned. Has that happened to anyone else?
