He Got It!

November 12th, 2006 at 12:11 pm

Hubby got the job! (Doing Happy Dance) Thanks to all those who sent good thoughts our way. Now, he has to go through the drug testing/physicals/background checks, etc. Hopefully, all will be finished this week. The other company sounds like it is really happy to have him, so that's great for him to go into a new job with people who want you there! Many in his old company have quietly expressed an understanding of why he is leaving. Morale has plummeted there over the last nine months. There are a lot of good people there that we care about, so the reasons why things are going bad really upset us. I have a feeling that several will leave or even some be asked to leave, and they are really good workers. It just isn't a good environment right now. So we'll just hope for them and their families that they will find something like we have. We realize how incredibly fortunate we are and plan to better utilize our money and be more careful. Any extra monies will be going to retirement programs. Prior to this site I wouldn't have seen it this way. But we are losing one leg of our three legged retirement program from the other company. We think we get to take what's in it now, but it will not be available at the other company. So we will be putting away extra money to make up for it. We had a serious talk--believe it or not we hardly ever talked about money in almost 30 years. We have a plan. We'll see how it shapes up when the paychecks come and we see the differences in medical, etc. I am excited for Hubby. It will be nice to see him happy at the end of the day again.....

    Always wonderful to leave a place where morale is low. The feeling of relief is incredible, and the energy that you get when moving to a place where people are happy about their work is a great boot.

    Reason indeed, to celebrate! We spend so much of our lives/time at our jobs---it is just so much more fulfilling when it is at a place we feel appreciated and challenged. I hope all goes well at the new job!!!

    congratulations!! ::joins the happy dance:: "been there, done that" and leaving a job where morale is low IS great....(I make a lot less $$ now, but, just to give you an idea, last time I ran into a friend from the old office at the supermarket, she was crying and, when I asked her what was wrong, she just said: I don't want to work there anymore!)
