when doing contracts etc with new parents?

i've just been to do paperwork with my new starter in sept and was there for nearly 2 hours!

when I filled in my 1st contract it took us nearly 2 hours, the next one still took about an hour.:(

It can depend Caroline

Some want to sign and go with a little information and questions along the way

Others take ages and im thinking hurry up haha

2 hours sounds about average I think

Mind you I always end up chatting away so its prob my fault that they stay so long

Its all the policies etc that seem to take ages aswell, and i am so careful to explain everything that i bore myself lol.

I had parents for a Sept starter come round last month to do all the paperwork and they stayed for 3 hours and we didn't even get the paperwork signed :laughing:

We sat there chatting but they did pay the deposit, they have to come back again to do the paperwork

2 hours does normally seem about right though

Depends on parents an any issues- anything from an hour to an hour and a half.

that's ok then. we did do a lot of chatting.
parents were here last week for about 1.5 hours.

the one I did last week was here for half an hour on her first visit then came back and was here an hour while i went through contracts and policies.

it usually takes 1-2 hours for me aswell
i like to make sure that we have gone over most things and not to rush it
