DEY GABE ME A JRB!

But yeah, I just got a job working as a bonding clerk for the local jail. After just shy of 2 years of unemployment, just when it was about to run out, I found employment.

As a clerk, whom will you be bonding with?

I'll be processing people's bond payments, which means people whose family member is in jail. They warned me of the myriad of emotions that will be displayed towards me, so that should be fun.

Congratulations! I know how disheartening it can be to be unemployed for an extended period of time, so I imagine this is a big relief for you.

Yeehaw!

That's great news Zumbly.

I do have a job now, sort of. It's only for a week, but it'll be full-time and decently paid, so I'm pleased about that. Hopefully either it will continue, or the agency will be able to find something to follow it up with. That particular agency have actually been really good, so I have high hopes that something will come up. So things are looking okay in Canada. Potentially.

It's too bad you've been subjected to such conditions as to require that you be that guarded in your optimism, but yay all the same!

Congrats on the job.

Used to work in a call center where we called folks who were behind on their car payments. Rather not fun, but as a plus, the other folks in the center were the nicest folks I'd ever worked with. Really.

Okay okay I did my weekof filing (filing ain't a good job and it is surprisingly strenuous to have to force fiiles into an already-full cabinet), and now I have a month of data entry to do. It is work! When I get home I'm going to see if I can get funded to qualify for something proper. I thought the government might help fund engineering courses, but their actual strategy (according to my dad who does recruiting and such for Ford) is apparently to whine about the lack of graduates in that subject. Oh well.

You should look into banker's boxes, Enty. Put the older records in there.

So I put in 35 hours in this job thus far, and it's very slow-paced but right now I love that. I've been watching instructional videos from Professormesser.com, a great site that covers everything you need to know about passing the A+, Network+, Security+ and Microsoft certification exams, but right now he is helping me to bridge (yuk yuk) the gaps left by my Networking textbook.

There's been some interesting characters in the jail, both employed and detained there, but the people that work there have so far been awesome people to work with.

I'm going for an interview tomorrow (technically later today,) and it has a 1 hour and 45 minute itinerary for the interview with four different people in the email the recruiter sent. Uh...what?

On the other hand I have secured temporary night work bartending at a country club this past week. :n/

Wuuurh so I started this month's work at the one place and then got a phone call around 3 saying they'd cancelled my job after one day because the slaes from their trade show were waaaay below expectations then got a phone call around 3.10 saying that the agency had found another thing and could I take a test and rejig my CV then got a phone call around 3.20 saying that actually they'd decided to keep me on at my current place for another week so uh what? I am working for at least the rest of the week. Fine. Okay.

DEY TUCK ER JRB!

Yeah, I lost my job today. The letter I got today read:
An unfeeling douchebag wrote:To: Mr. Micah Dyer

This letter is to inform you that you are hereby dismissed for failure to successfully complete your probationary period.
Due to your probationary status, you do not have appeal rights to the Floyd County Personnel Board.


I asked about why and they didn't cite any disciplinary problems, only that I "wasn't working out". So I learned today that being in a probationary period means you can be fired for purely arbitrary reasons. Not even half-assed reasons like "I didn't like him" or "He liked Picard when Kirk was clearly the better captain."

I'm sorry that happened to you. That really sucks! :x I was let go after one month during a probationary period at a job once. That sucked too.
