Its finally happened. I’m officially hired at the housing authority where I’ve been temping now for ten months. :clap:
It’s been one heck of a process on getting hired. Taking the civil service test twice, interviewing, fending off other applicants who want the job that I’ve been doing, and so on. I knew three weeks ago how well I did with the interview, but they told me they weren’t sure they could hire me because of the Rule of 3. My boss told me it took him 11 months after securing his spot on the Civil Service test to be hired. Luckily for me it was only 2 months.
The funny coincidental part, I had just broken down and called my temp agency and told them that I was working and handling more than what I was originally hired for today at 11:30am. I was trying to wait until I heard more, but I was getting desperate because I’m getting fed up with Outback and I can’t live on temp wage. Nor should I have to work two jobs when I’m single and have no kids. Not ten minutes after I got off the phone with the temp agency (they agreed I needed a raise if I’m doing more than I should be) my boss came in and dropped all the Tax Forms, Heath Benefits, and Retirement papers in my lap saying, “You can hug me later.” Me, well I just squealed with excitement. :laff2: :banana:
