Got Hired Today

Post by Looking4Ajob on Mon Feb 28, 2011 3:23 pm

I've been out of work since December 2010. I was hired today. $14.00 per hour to start through the agency for 90 days. Shipping and Receiving. Which is what I was used to anyway. I was trained in other various positions but I mainly was in S&R. So this is a blessing. I go tomorrow to be fitted for a mask. Which is required if I enter various departments. But not required in my department. The drive is a 39 mile each direction. But I will definitely move asap. Once I am hired on by the company after 90 days. I will move to $17.29 per hour.

I know I don't post here much, but I am here every day and I will still be here. As nothing is guaranteed with this job, I do hope it is permanent. I wish everyone good luck. I happened across this by being registered with this agency and doing jobs about 2-3 times per week for them. Some lasting a week, some only a day. But I never turned anything down.

Wish me luck. I will need it. It sounded promising and the hiring department was thrilled with my past experiences and work ethics with the agency. I was given priority with this job vacancy and when I was there Friday to do my interview there was no one else there. And they assured me I was given priority. Looks like they didn't lie.

I wish you all the best. I wish everyone could find a job.

Thank you!! Mr. Golf, how do I change it? I wouldn't want to keep it this way and working it doesn't seem fair to post using this name. Or does it matter? Not that I ever posted. Just recently started to once or twice. I'm rather shy. Smile

It's Okay Mr. Golf, Nothing is set in stone yet. So I will give it the 90days then the 90days with the company before I change my name. As I wind down this evening it has finally hit home that I will be going back to work tomorrow. I am certainly very lucky it hasn't been a year or two or more.... So it won't be hard to get back in the groove of things.... So, early to bed, early to rise Smile No more late evenings.

First day, fitted for some crazy mask. Barely can breath while using it. But it's better than breathing those fumes I suppose. Then I filled out some paperwork. The usual taxing information and such. Watched a few films. Had lunch with the higher ups. And came home. It's was a good day. Everyone seems very friendly. I even was able to go into my department and venture a little with my trainer. It appears that everything I will be doing in computer based and I am very familiar with it. I showed them what I know. And from the looks of it, no training will even be needed. That's nice. But was told I would be cross trained in other departments on an as needed basis and when I go permanent with the company (in 90 days) I will get my basic pay 17.29 hr plus an hourly extra for being multi-tasked trained. That's great to know. I was also given all the benefits package to look over during my 90 days so that I can familiarize myself with them before signing anything when the time comes.

I will check back in after a week and let everyone know how things are going.

Thank you for all your support.
