Once you are officially  in the class, you will complete bi-weekly timesheets, have your manager sign, and return to a Work Experience  Coordinator.   During the trimester, your place of employment will be  visited to meet with your manager to discuss your skills, work ethic, attitude, timeliness, etc...   Your manager will evaluate you at the end of each trimester.   A reflection paper is also due at the end of each trimester.
