Does anyone know what production level new hires need to get to at the end of the six month period.  How is that determined?  Is it for the last bi-week?  What if you have a low average for the first six months (50%) and you did well in the last bi-week?  
What level of production at the end of the six month period is considered necessary to keep your position?
Thanks for your reply

 
I'm not sure there is a single answer to this question.   Your SPE may make a retention decision as late as your 10th or 11th month, but may make it earlier if he can see that you aren't going to be able to produce.   Your SPE has some discretion.
 
What's typically expected as a minimum is that your production will start slow and show a ramping up to 100% before the end of your probationary period.  
 
Things may be completely different for those involved in the 8 months in the patent academy with the associated two year probationary period.  I have no idea how that works.

For all the people asking about what is required in training for production, quizzes, or whatever else, i have a really novel concept: why don't you ask your boss, teacher or whoever else in charge of you and/or your training. I'm quite certain they would be happy to answer all of your questions.
 
Does that not make more logical sense, to ask the person who has the answer than asking vague questions to a bunch of strangers?

Regarding the quizzes: are you failing a bunch of them? Since they are directed to the material that you have lectures on and it's also material that builds your foundation of knowledge at the pto, it should reflect on your evaluation.
 
And to (somewhat) build on the last poster's response, what difference does it make once you know the answer to your question? Are you going to "try harder?" If you're not giving 100% on those quizzes right now, there's something else wrong here.
