In fact, this was my first week as an official employee of the company where I’ve been working for the past 9 months. And I’m thrilled. This is a company I’ve wanted to work at for years. I’ve applied multiple times, but never heard anything back. When I took the temp job, I was hoping this would be a way to get my foot in the door. And it was.
I’m frustrated that I am just now earning vacation again, but other than that, I’m very happy with the rest. Benefits have already kicked in. I am getting a raise over my last real job (not to mention both temp jobs). And I really do like my co-workers. This is a job I intend to be at for quite some time.
And the best part is, it’s still in town. The other side of town from where I work, but still, it is so nice not to have to leave town during commute times. I don’t know how those who do it manage. The year and a half I did it was more than enough for me.
