:Poor Papa! This current job is really stressing him out badly! He found out today that there will be no raises next year, no bonuses (surprise surprise), and our payments for healthcare are going up another 3.9%! Also, the project he is on (helping convert the computer systems to a new ***crappy!*** one) is not going as planned at all! The next division isn't set to launch on the new system until at least 2017 - which means the "big" bonus for completing the project is probably never going to happen! Well, maybe by the year G2 (only 13) finished college! LOL And the head of the entire project just up and quit yesterday! While Papa's job there would be secure since the company has to finish the system switch, it wouldn't be a fun place to stay employed.
However....He has a job interview on Monday morning for that position that would start at around 15 to 20K more than he makes now. He's not sure he's completely qualified for it but, the headhunter obviously thinks he's qualified enough to interview! It's much closer to home - about thirty minutes away and right off the highway. It's a large stable company too so that's a bonus! As much as the extra money would help, I really really need Papa to be happy in his job! So fingers crossed he likes the position and they like him!
If not, the search will continue!
As for me, while at breakfast yesterday, my friend was telling me about a side job she is doing for someone she used to work with at CVS pharmacy. Basically this man has four pharmacies in the state but has also started an online pharmaceutical company that has taken off. He is trying out a program where he hires people to do the computer data entry of the prescriptions at home. My friend is his "guinea pig" and, if it works out, she will be training more people to do it with her. When this trial period is over for her and all the bugs are worked out, she is going to let me know and give my name to this owner. I trust her and know that this isn't some weird "scheme". I really would love to work from home but have always been leery of finding something on the internet due to the millions of scams out there. No matter what, it looks like I am going to need to find some sort of part time work in 2016.
