Hey! New job!

Post  ScottRadom on Wed Sep 15, 2010 9:44 pm

So I quit Prairie Meats. Been there near 13 years. So.... as these things go they decided to give me a new job, which is very much a promotion in pay and benefits and all that as a Salesman. I am pretty excited, and I really look forward to making better money. For those not in the loop my company saw fit to demote me as a manager, which has proven a poor decision. I would question my boss on it constantly now that it's been over a year and the math REALLY illustrates the poor decision. He gave me the 'ole "Accept it or don't" kind of speech and I went for the "don't" part.

EVERYONE in their life should get to have the kind of meeting I got to after I gave my notice. I really respect the owner and despite the decision to demote me I still like him. He is a little prone to pointing at the door any time a discussion gets heated, but what the hell, if I was a self made millionaire I can't say I'd be ANY different. It was a good feeling to have a more constructive meeting once that option had been removed from the conversation. I do like and respect him, so I am very happy that I can still work there. The new job pays better, has actual full blown weekends off (Haven't really had those since 1996. Holy shit!) and all sorts of perks. Also, I think I am gonna like the commission part.

Good times, and I think I might get back into playing now too. It's easier with a more regular schedule too!
