  • OT: Good news!

    So, I posted a thread awhile back about my concerns over getting a certain job...

    Well, I GOT THE JOB, YO!

    I'm stoked as all hell. Finally, a real job with a salary! No more clock punching for the RyMan.

    I've been trying to convince the wife that I need to spend some of this extra coin on a nice new bass...apparently, I'm not as persuasive as I thought - We signed a purchase agreement for a house this past weekend.

    Eh, maybe a nice kegerator is in the cards for me.

    Is there overtime involved? Salary was fun for a little while...but when you put in more than 40 hrs. a week, and don't get any extra money for it...it gets old real fast. Especially when you get called in at 2am 3 days in a row...

    We finally got switched to hourly...sine the company realized it wasn't very fair. Which is a first!

    Anywho...congrats!!! I'm glad you got the job!

        Yeah, there's overtime involved. It'll be between 50-60 hours a week, but the salary and benefits more than make up for that. It's only 7:30AM-6:30PM Monday through Friday, and a couple hours on Saturday mornings, so no late nights or work-filled weekends. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to the job. It's a pretty cool position, actually.

        Thanks for the congrats!

                    Congrats! After 10+ years of punching the clock, I'm about half way thru my 8th year of salary, and can't fathom going back to clock punching.

                              The starting pay for most positions is probably peanuts compared to what she's used to making, but it's a great company to work for, IMHO. Check their website and see if anything seems appealing:

                              https://www.efirstbank.com/careers/

                              The house is in Englewood, around the Arapahoe/Jordan Rd. area. Not too far from the DTC. It's a brand new development called Ladera. We're still waiting on loan pre-approval right now. They've already poured the foundation, and the house will be finished around August or September. It's party time when that bitch is finished (if we get the loan...)!
