The Interview

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Well, it wasn't so much an interview than application session. The interviewer works for a medical staffing company. They hire temporary to permanent positions only. That means I would be working for them at the client company for a period of time then be hired on full time. Which, if she finds a job for me before I do myself, it will be fine. It's a job, and I'm out of that company. Which, I have no idea why I have gone into work these past two days. Monday was a holiday. Tuesday and today were a joke. Basically, I work with the girls in the morning, doing my usual paperwork, then the office manager comes in at her usual whenever time, and starts berating. Every little thing, she nit-picks. I am doing her a "favor" by not making her come in to help these girls until they find my replacement. But, oh, well, whatever! I am still bringing in money to my family, and I can hold my head up high walking right out of the door at the end of the day knowing that very soon, it will be my last time walking through that door!

Today was not just about the interview. I originally had today off (in the morning) to take my oldest daughter to the dentist to get her last baby tooth pulled. It was hanging on by a thread. It's out, she's fine, and it's time for bed! G'nite, all!

    I hope the new job works into full time quickly. Most places do this any more. At the least you know if can't be worse than where you are now.

    It is just so hard trying to be the "bigger" person. Got a couple of email rejections, so that was hard. Then everyone's been in a bad mood all morning. emoticon
    I would so just walk out of here if I could afford to (or if my heart were a little smaller...I'd hate leaving the girls here cold). The office manager just told me to make a handbook of everything she needs to teach the new girl if I find a job before she finds my replacement. Really? You fired me and you want me to hold your hand through this? I mean, training the new girl is one thing, but to actually make one folder that has instructions for everything I do or quite possibly might have to do once every six months? ~sigh~ I do it not because of her, I do it because of Sarah and Sam and all the patients that I get to use this time to tell "good bye". I do it because if I wasn't doing something, I would either cry, eat everything in sight, or yell and scream bloody murder and actually tell her where to go. It is so much easier to have a good attitude and to not become depressed when you are busy (and it's easier to ignore her when she does end up showing her face at work) emoticon

    Nice that you're not leaving the people at your present job "hanging by a thread!" Hope you get nothing but warm fuzzies at the new place.

    Tooth fairy time for DD then? emoticon

    You've got the right attitude now. I remember only too well my last 3 days at work and they sound exactly the same. Hold your head up when you walk out the door for the last time, girlfriend....

    and then look forward to a brighter future.
