FAQ

Being nervous about working for Umbrella is probably the most normal thing you can do. Your apprehension is a sign that you are already interested in getting to work. Additionally, rest assured that most of your fears will probably go away after your first week and that, even if they don't, there's always something you can do to change things.

Common New Employee Fears

1. The Employment office hired me by accident.

Not true. And even if we did, they'd have told you by now.

2. My roommate will be awful!

This is, of course, a possibility, but very unlikely; the vast majority of Umbrella employees get along really well with their roommates. There are things you can do to start of strong with a new roommate and ways to handle problems if they arise. (Additionally, there are some important steps to take when first contacting your roommate).

3. I don't know anyone there, and I'll have problems meeting new people and making friends.

One important thing to remember is that almost everyone there is new, and virtually no one knows anyone else. Even the friendliest first-year Umbrella employee knows a small handful of folks, at most, before arriving at their facility. Since everyone is looking to meet other people (especially during Orientation and your first week), take a deep breath and introduce yourself. And just in case that doesn't work, there are lots of other ways to meet new people.

4. I won't be able to cut it.

Your work experience will likely be much harder, than your previous jobs. Your work load will increase. Your assignments will be more heavily weighted and you'll have less "filler" work assignments that are easy points.

None of these facts means, however, that you will not do well. It is pretty common for a new employee not to catch on quick, but that doesn't mean you aren't doing well. It means you are taking more challenging assignments in a work environment. Additionally, if you need help, there are resources at each facility you can tap into.

5. I'm really going to be homesick for my friends/family/boyfriend/girlfriend back home.

This is probably true. You will miss all kinds of people back at home; even if you're not going away, you'll probably end up missing the time you used to have to spend with friends, family, and loved ones. Managing a long-distance relationship can be hard, but it doesn't have to mean you can't stay. You can miss someone and still make it at Umbrella. There are also easy ways to keep in touch with your family and even though things will change while you are away, your friends and family will still be the crazy, lovable people who are proud of you and your work at Umbrella.

6. I'm concerned about my finances.

This is a very legitimate concern. life is expensive; and your funds are probably tight. Best Rest assured Umbrella has you covered. Employees receive free meals, housing, utilities, and company transportation. Your needs are met by Umbrella. All brand new employees will receive 500 upon contract to help get into the process of moving to a facility. Once You have reached your location You  will begin to receive your wages every 30 days.

7. I don't know how I'll balance so many things.

Time management is one of the biggest challenges for Umbrella Employees. By learning some important time management skills, however, you can stay on top of your game and learn how to handle a very demanding schedule while still having fun.

8. I'm nervous about being on my own for the first time.

Good! You should be nervous; being on your own, especially for the first time, is hard. But something inside of you knows you are ready or you wouldn't have wanted to join Umbrella in the first place. Sure, you'll make mistakes along the way, but you're ready to head off on your own. And if not, there are plenty of people and support mechanisms on a Umbrella facility to help you out.

9. I don't know how to do basic things, like doing my own laundry or cooking for myself.

While managing things like this is a common fear, there is also an easy fix. Before leaving for Umbrella, have someone teach you how to do laundry. If you're already at a facility learn by watching someone. If you don't know how to cook, try watching some cooking shows or cooking with some friends. In no time at all, you'll be a laundry-washing, dinner-cooking Umbrella pro. *Please note: Cafeterias are available at each facility and services are available for laundry*

10. My health is really important to me, and I'm worried about gaining weight.

Being healthy -- and staying healthy -- in Umbrella is really important. And most incoming employees have heard of the dreaded fifteen pounds that every incoming first-year employee (supposedly) gains when they start work. With a few small but simple choices, staying healthy and avoiding the freshman fifteen is actually a lot easier than one would think at a Umbrella facility.

11. I'm intimidated by co-workers but know I may need to go to them for help.

In addition to being incredibly smart and, yes, even intimidating at times, most co-workers are actually really nice and approachable. There are many easy, low-key ways to get to know your co-workers without coming off too aggressively.

12. I'm worried about being disconnected from my religious life, practice, and community.

Being away at Umbrella doesn't have to mean being disconnected from your religious life. In fact, there are multiple ways to keep your religious life and college life integrated while in school.

13. I'm worried about my safety now that I'm on my own.

Umbrella is very concerned about our employees safety. Extreme measures have been put in place to ensure a safe working environment, if you have any question about our safety precautions please contact Umbrella Security.

14. I don't think I can handle all of the stress.

Umbrella is a very stressful place, with groundbreaking research being done everyday, but being in a stressful situation and being stressed are very different things. Managing college stress takes some practice, but is definitely manageable.

15. I have no idea what I want to do after Umbrella.

This is a really common fear for incoming employees. While you should still know how to pick your department and eventually what path to take, you'll have more time to explore your interests and be open to new ideas and career choices. Umbrella will be here every step of the way as we welcome new employees to our company.
