There are several distinct problems which must be addressed differently.

Most of what you are referring to is not technical. Thus it is a management problem. Which might or might not be fixable.

You didn't state what 'level' you are. But if you have less then 2 years of actual profession programming experience then your "seniors" and perhaps your company is just wrong in a number of ways.

If you have more and specifically sold yourself as being a self starter then some of this comes back more on you. Certainly if you have say 10 years of experience then not being able to get your head around the tasks is all on you.

The application life cycle shouldn't really matter unless you are being told something is late when you didn't know there was a schedule to start with.

Did you estimate the tasks or did someone else? If it was someone else, regardless of your experience level, and then someone/anyone expects you to take the same amount of time then take comfort in knowing that those people are idiots. Which doesn't ease the situation but might make it easier to approach emotionally.

Are all of these things normal??


Unfortunately at some places yes. But not most.

Some few places will proactively help the new person. Most places are bit more lazy in terms of this but they still want the new person to succeed because someone must do the work. And if the new person doesn't/can't then one of the existing people will then have to do all of their work and the additional work as well.

Best you can do at this point is to approach your actual manager, not your teammates and discuss the general frustration with the onboarding (yours) process. Make sure that you do not attempt to make it their problem but rather phrase it as your inability. Doing that way, hopefully, makes it less confrontational for a manager that probably doesn't know how to manage that well.

Or just keep your head down and try, try, try until they accept you.
