when temp agencies control your life....
This is going to be kind of short becasue I've been online for hours already. As you know, yesterday Lee and I didn't hang out. He had fun at the opera though, which is good. He said we should go down there and do something sometime, and I said that'd be awesome, becasue it would be. Hell, I'd even go to the opera with him, though I sense that shit is expensive. Despite the lack of a Lee hangout, yesterday was relatively eventful. Friday morning while I was working a job I had spoken with earlier in the week called, wanting to set up an appointment. I called them back at lunch, and set up an interview for Tuesday morning at 9:30, since I couldn't set up anything any earlier. I then called the agency, and told them I'd be in by 11 on tuesday(this isn't totally accurate, I've since found out it'll probably be closer to noon.) It's a group interview for a job as an entry level records specialist. I'm not 100% sure what that is, but it pays 29 grand a year, so I'm going to find out. It's also right down the street from my job, which is conveniant. anyway, the receptionist lady gave me no shit about it, but then that afternoon shortly before I left work they called again. I called back as I was walking to my train(which I barely missed). Apparantly the lady there wanted to warn me. She said that althougth I was approved to come in late on Tuesday, that this client realy doesn't like when people call out and come in late. Monday, if you recall, I was too sick to go to work, and Tuesday I went in late for that same reason. Since I just started the job on the 30th, the poor attendence looked bad, and that really bothers that client apparantly. Which didn't thrill me. I was sick, and everyone there knows it. Hell, I'm still not totally well. I'm not going to go to work when I'm ill and don't have health insurance. And, I'm sure as hell not going to put my job search on hold for two fucking months while I wallow in temping hell with no insurance, vacation, or benifits. And, I like this job alright. They keep me busy, and its less monotonous then data entry, but there's only so much I can deal with. If they give me too much shit about stuff, and want to fire me or something, I'll walk, even though Officeteam has effectively dropped me. There are plenty of temp agencies and plenty of temp jobs, I'm not going to let one, even if it's a decent one, control my fucking life. I really need a real job. Update ya later
