So - I got to work this morning all ready to say goodbye to all the people I had worked with - especially Mary - the person I had replaced while she was off and one of the nicest people! - when the HR person called me into her office.
"Oh dear!" I thought, "What did I do wrong?"
Why is that always the first thing so many of us think?
But nope - it wasn't something I did wrong. Instead, she said they wanted to keep me on indefintely. I would work in the finance department for a while because they were backlogged pretty bad and then I would move to another department that was expanding as an admin assistant. And that's not even the best part! I wouldn't be working for the employment agency, instead I would be working directly for the company which would mean a $2.25 an hour pay increase. Now money wasn't the motivating factor of why I would have loved to stay there - it was the people and the environment - but it sure is a nice side benefit *g*.
Then she came up to me later and again wanted me to come into her office.
"Oh no!" I thought. "They've changed their minds."
But nope that wasn't it. Instead it seems it won't be so quick before I get let out of my contract with the employement agency. They could either buy out my contract or I would have to wait 4 weeks before I start working directly for them. Since it's a non-profit organization, they were probably going to wait out the four weeks and would that be all right?
Not a problem for me! Although it would have been nice making that extra money starting Monday - just knowing they still want me, that I still have a job at a place I really enjoyed was good enough!
So - my to do list will have to be done after 4:30 or on weekends and I don't have to worry about my don't do list.
Cindy - how does a Saturday sound?
