What am I supposed to do? Defining expectations for new hires.

Jim was anxious to get started in his new management role with a Midwestern consulting company.  It was the perfect position for him based on his previous experience.  He was ready and raring to go.

When he got to the office on his first day, he was greeted by the HR Director who shuffled him off to a windowless room to fill out the necessary paperwork.  Once the paperwork was done, his boss walked him around the office.  It was a fairly typical first day.
