More on the job sitch

Apparently I am officially an employee with a real job title; I am a Service Quality Analyst. Which was not the title I proposed, but I am happy with it. I told my previous sup that I thought my title should be Customer Service process Analyst, because a good chunk of what I do is look at how we handle customers and figure out the places its not working and needs to be changed. So yeah.

The bennies will kick in after three months. I guess, even though I've been here a 18 months, the offical hire policy is a 3 month wait. That's pretty standard. So, new glasses and dentist appointments for everyone in mid July.

Also, on hourly instead of salary, since salary was too hard for them to do? I don't know. Something about transitioning from hourly contractor to salaried employee wasn't kosher?

Dunno. Don't really care. Salary just means that I have to officially work late hours without extra pay. *snort* I do that anyway. I rarely bill the company for hours I work late, because I often come in whenever the hell I please and take however the heck long I want for lunch (like today was 1.5 hours, and other days nothing) and leave when I want to. So. Some days I work 6 hours and some days I work 12 (like yesterday)

But I also cruise LJ at work and think nothing of taking a fic break if it's not hectic insane busy and I need a mental break.

Also, there are the Nerf Warz to consider - I'm quite certain that the entire office has racked up several days worth of non-productive time because of those.

Heh - my boss actually IMed me today in the middle of a firefight to say "Hey, come see me when there's a break in the battle" and I yelled, "CEASE FIRE" and made a run for his office.

I only got nailed twice on the way. You gotta be fast around here.

7:30ish and I am outta here for the weekend. W00T!

I happen to like the inclusion of "Quality" in your title, your imperiousness. So you get BAWOONS!!!

I'll be back in Van mid-June some time. Dinner on me and we'll celebrate - maybe actually watch something or go see a movie or something.

A couple of seasons ago we had a Nerf war going on on HK, sneak attacks, gorilla warfare, quickly made and broken departmental alliances. My Nerf gun had 'bullets' that whistle like missiles. They were my favourite.

Absolutely fabulous! Great to hear that you get to keep your dream job! And they are going to pay you! Hourly is better than salary, IMHO...unless you are limited to how many hours you can work in a year.

I forget; does your take-home drop when the bennies kick in? Or do you get the same deal as with E-Bay?
