Jenn's Job Offer

I don't want to go into too much detail, as she hasn't accepted it yet and this is a public blog.

Good things:
  • The money. Good money. More than she was making at either of the banks.
  • It seems to be a job made for her. She gets to be a trainer, a manager, and still work with customers. Jenn thrives off of working with people.
  • And she will get to do some sales. The girl is a salesperson through and through!
  • Hours. Good hours. Very few if any evenings. No Sundays.
  • It is a small, yet growing company. We are kinda pissy towards huge corporations at the moment. Especially banks!
  • The owner of this small company, and my small company are best friends. Think back to the Tony Romo incident...yep, same guys.
  • Jenn smiled. She got all happy and excited when they offered her the job.
Not so good things:
  • No domestic partner insurance. But they are looking into it for next year.
  • I am going to miss Jenn. I am so used to having her home and at my beckon call.
But those two not so good things are totally outnumbered by the many good things. They are willing to negotiate her salary based on the fact that we will have to pay for insurance for me outside of their company. And missing Jenn, well it isn't like I see her all day. I still work. And this gives me an opportunity to get my buns back in the kitchen and cook again! I love it when Jenn comes home from work to a clean house and dinner on the table (the coffee table, lest you think we actually use our dining room table for anything other than storage).

So, she will most likely be accepting this job in the very near future. There will be one less person in the unemployment line.

sounds like a lot of good things! i hope you can negotiate the salary to cover the extra price of insurance, that's what my employer does...

Chris said...

That sounds wonderful for both you and Jenn. Congrats :-)

Heather said...

Yeah, Jenn! Sounds like a great job. Hopefully they will be willing to work out some extra salary to pay the insurance difference.

Eleven years at one job! That's impressive, not boring!

Way to go, Jenn! And way to go, you--- what with 11 years and all at one place. That's pretty awesome, I think!

And remember, you can always email me!!
