After three and a half months at my job, I was officially hired this week. They said I've done a great job, I work hard, I learn fast, and no one has ever had any complaints about me. I've given this job a lot of myself so it's nice to be appreciated. Sadly, it's still hourly, and the pay is not what I was hoping for. When I have a more in depth meeting with HR on Monday I'll have to ask if raises are a possibility in the future. I really hate the idea of job hunting again any time soon.
The job is an ESOP. They also do a vested stock program. So in five years, I can cash out my automatically accrued investment in the company and quit, or continue there. For now, I'll stay where I am, and hope for the best. I'll post more about it later. I just wanted to post some good news.
I'm a mid twenty something woman living in New England with my two dogs. I graduated college in 2008, and by then the economy was tanking. It was not a good time to enter the adult world. I was originally going to Vet school, but developed severe animal allergies. After 7 months of allergy shots, that affected my liver and actually made my symptoms much worse, i had to give up that dream. Now I'm just trying to find a steady job. I had major reconstructive knee surgery in November of 2011, so I'm still healing.
